Let's get your Nomad seasoning going
Follow these simple steps to prepare your Nomad frying and wok pans for use, and create your own healthy non-stick layer with natural oil.
Nomad pans are made from carbon steel, which is the perfect choice for those wishing to cook and fry with cookware that is not only high-quality but also healthy. By seasoning your pan you create a healthy and natural non-stick layer, allowing your food to slide off easily. This natural patina layer just gets better and better, the more you use it. The blacker the pan, the better the non-stick properties!
Seasoning your pan is so easy! Follow these steps to create your own healthy non-stick coating:
Step 1: Clean the pan
Clean the pan in warm water with a small amount of detergent.
Rinse and dry completely to prevent rusting.
Step 2 : Add a drop of oil
Pour a thin layer (approx. 1 mm) of oil into the pan and heat at a medium temperature.
Gently rotate the pan allowing the oil to spread evenly.
Step 3: Rub it in
Once the oil starts to smoke, use a cloth or paper towel to rub the oil all the way up to the rim of the pan until all remaining is gone. The pan will gradually discolour.
The darker the colour, the better the non-stick layer.
Step 4 : Cool down
Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool down completely.
Clean the cold pan with warm water and dry thoroughly.
SOME HANDY TIPS:
You will naturally be keen to enjoy your Nomad pan for as long as possible. We would therefore like to offer some useful tips when using this collection:
- The use of fatty foods boosts the patina layer on the pan. Also, the more you use the pan, the less oil you will need and the more effective your non-stick layer will be!
- Neutral oils, such as groundnut, linseed, rapeseed or sunflower oil are the only oils suitable for seasoning your Nomad pan. Do not use olive oil for this purpose.
- Avoid acidic foods (tomato sauce, lemon, etc.) since these can damage the natural patina layer.
- We advise against using metal utensils. These can harm the natural patina layer. Wooden and plastic kitchen utensils are better suited to protecting the life of your patina layer.
- When using induction we recommend the following: 1) Use a medium temperature. 2) Avoid the Boost function on your induction hob. 3) Never allow an empty pan to overheat.
- The pan has a wooden handle, and must therefore never be placed in the oven. Avoid placing the handle directly above a naked flame.
Your long enjoyment of Nomad pans also depends on the appropriate care Here are some important guidelines:
- It is important that you allow your pan to cool down completely before cleaning it.
- Do not use cleaning agents that contain chlorine (such as bleach) to clean your pan.
- To clean the pan, use a soft and clean sponge or dishcloth. Do not use metal scrubbers because they would remove or damage the patina layer created by the oil.
- Burnt-in food remaining in the pan is best removed by lightly warming the pan on the hob and wiping it off with a little salt and a dishcloth.
- We recommend always drying the pan properly after cleaning.
- The Nomad collection is not suitable for use in the dishwasher.
