Read the directions...
on October 20, 2010
I love this pan. I have owned a 9" for 10 months now. I had a problem at first, because I walked away from the pan with oil in it and it was too hot so the oil burned and I couldn't get it off. The pan was replaced and now I know better. Keep heat between medium and medium high. First, you must season the pan. It says that in in the directions.
Here's what I do.
1. Heat the burner on high til red hot.
2. Put the pan on it for ONE MINUTE.
3. Then remove from heat and put a small bit of vegetable oil in the pan and rub it in. It's OK if there is oil all over.
4. Let the pan cool COMPLETELY.
5. Wipe out all the oil and you are ready to cook.
If you put it in the dishwasher, you must re-season the pan. Also, if I am cooking several pieces of, say french toast, I will wipe out the pan between slices so there is no residue that will become sticky. Do not leave oil in it and get distracted by your kids. If this happens, just take it off the burner and come back to it. My pan is like glass. Everything slides right out. Eggs are fantastic. I think its a good tip to wipe out the pan between items, like more than one or two pieces of chicken at a time.Cook, wipe out, cook another piece, wipe out, etc. Teflon is not good for our health, so consider that before going back to it because you didn't read the directions on your pan. Get a small pan to try it first if you are skeptical. The company replaced mine and I didn't even want them too, I just asked how to get the burned on oil off and they send me a label to send it back. They sent me a brand new pan. Don't forget to keep it seasoned!
