How to clean a blue steel pan?

Blue steel pans are a type of carbon steel cookware that can develop a nonstick surface with proper seasoning and care. Cleaning them is easy and simple, as long as you follow these tips:

- Do not use soap or detergent on your blue steel pan, as they can strip away the seasoning and make the pan rust.

- Wash the pan with hot water and a soft sponge or brush. You can use a wooden spatula or a plastic scraper to remove any stuck-on food bits.

- Dry the pan thoroughly with a cloth or paper towel. You can also heat it over in a oven or low flame to evaporate any moisture.

- Rub a thin layer of oil on the entire surface of the pan, including the handle and the edges. Use a neutral oil with a high smoke point, such as vegetable, canola, or grapeseed oil.

- Store the pan in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and humidity. You can stack it with other pans, but make sure to place a paper towel or a silicone mat between them to prevent scratching.
