Top tip: to keep pans flat always heat up the pan slowly from cold.
Can I use the pan on induction?
Yes, our spun black iron is very magnetic so works exceptionally well on all induction hobs.
However all Netherton pan are hand made, so each one is unique. They will not all be as flat as a billiard table.
To maintain pan flatness and warranty cover, follow these steps:
Every time you use the pan heat SLOWLY from a LOW setting, before selecting high or full power.
Use a hob/ring the same size as the pan base, small hobs/rings will warp big pans.
Never drop a hot pan into cold water, this will buckle it.
Are pre-seasoned pans non-stick?
Seasoned pans don't have the same characteristics as those with chemical non-stick coatings. Unlike PTFE style coatings that get worse with use, the non stick properties of our seasoned pans improve with use; the more you use them the better they get. You will need oil/butter in the pan for cooking omelettes and fried eggs. If you are cooking sausages and bacon, the chances are that you will not need any additional fat, as the fat in the food will be sufficient and will also help to build up the patina of your pan surface. If you are cooking meat or fish, we recommend oiling the food, rather than the pan. Make sure the pan is hot before adding the food and that the food is at room temperature, not fridge cold. Be patient, allow your food to sear and seal on the underside before attempting to turn it over. If your food is sticking, it may be because it isn’t cooked enough.
