I have been looking for a small frying pan to work on my induction hob for a while so when I saw one in Morrisons that I liked the size of I was overjoyed. Turns out it is a carbon steel pan and it says it should be seasoned(?) and only wiped clean. I was very much hoping for a 'standard' pan which could be used straight away. I also want to be able to clean it properly as it's for preparing of baby food. Does anyone know if I can just use it normally without seasoning and wash in soapy water? And Can it make food unsafe if I do that? Thanks so much.
Just season it - food won't stick and it will be perfectly safe for your baby. If you don't do that it'll just go rusty and everything will stick. If you are not sure how to season it, have a look on YouTube.
