simply the best thing ive bought in years. thats takin into concideration the quality, the use i get out of it and most of all the price. not kidding, im buyin another one just a month after buyin the 1st one.
you have to season it yourself but thats certainly not even worth takin off a quarter of a star. simply rub it down with a light layer of oil or fat, both inside and out and bake it in the oven for an hour at around 250. it does look a bit staines when its done but after cookin a few times it blackens like you see pro pans on tv. i did this twice but im like that, once probably would have done. after that you have restraunt quality steaks in the house. nice charred lines on the outside even when doing medium rare steaks. if you like well done just do one side for as long as nessesary flip the steak and slip the pan in the oven until its done and your laughing.
that brings me to my next point, for those wondering over the size this pan fits 2 steaks in nicely but no more and thats why im getting another one for when i have company. i honestly cant speak highly enough for this pan and at that price what have you got to lose. lasts a lifetime to!
