I got this iron alloy / carbon steel pan for xmas and I was really excited. But over the past few months I've been very dissatisfied with it. Today I tried making scrambled eggs in it. Heated it up to low-medium, about a tbsp of grapeseed oil. Waited about 5 minutes to make sure it was heated. Put the eggs in and by the end I'm having to scrape the eggs off the bottom of the pan. The eggs weren't getting over cooked, they never turned brown. I tried seasoning it with flax oil in the oven when I got it. That didn't go very well. Eventually the surface flaked off. I then re-finished it by stripping off the flax oil with oven cleaner and refinishing it with the potato peel and oil method that deBuyer recommends (no really). That surface was just a train wreck so I didn't see many other options. Refinishing my cast iron pans in this way went so well... but not so much for the iron alloy pan. Now I'm kind of at a loss for what to do with it. The one thing I need this pan to do well is eggs. Salmon and chicken would be nice. I'll cook steak in the cast iron pan. I'm trying to decide if I should strip it down again or call deBuyer and get help from them. The coating on the handle is a beautiful deep brown and seems to be what the coating on the rest of the pan should be. Suggestions?
