Did i mess my pan up?
Sorry for the bad photo, my phone camera sucks.
Last week i bought a de buyer force blue pan, i tried using it today to make some pork chops amd steak. After using, i washed it with hot water and a nylon brush. I noticed the surface now looks like this. It does not look much like the new seasoning on other carbon steel pans ive seen, did something go wrong? I used it on an induction stovetop on the 9th power level (out of 15).
No. The seasoning just wasn't set in well and you lost a little. Keep cooking with it. I lost a little seasoning on my pan last night when I got my Swiss steak a little too hot. No worries, a little bacon for breakfast, ground beef or cubes for stew and, all will be right with the world again.
