    DARTO pans

    Seasoned mine with avocado oil in my friends outdoor kitchen. Her grill has natural gas piped right to it. Seasoned at high temp 500-550 for about 25 minutes a round. I did 5 or 6 rounds. Looked much better than stovetop method. I've cooked quite a bit with the 27. I regularly use it for breakfast taters, sauteeing onions, bacon, and eggs. Very non stick. Enjoying the pan. I have yet to use the 35. It'll definitely get used to roast my thanksgiving turkey. I gave the 25 as a wedding gift. The couple that received it were delighted.

    DARTO pans

    Mine arrived today. Gonna be a labor of love getting these things ready to cook on. Sticky sticky with some sort of shellac. No dents, but lots of scratches and some brown stuff which might be rust? This box has seen some stuff. I received a notice that it was only picked up on the 23rd. Two days in transit. The opening scene of Ace Ventura Pet Detective comes to mind.

    Do I need a....

    I snagged one on prime day last summer. I got a well known model that was normally 120 for 40. I use it ALL the time. I grabbed 2 giant rolls from Amazon for like 20 dollars. Still have probably a third of my first roll left. I use it all the time for meats. I load up during sales.

    DARTO pans

    Dammit I bought one. And by one I mean three. The 25, 27, and 35. Mostly wanted the pans, but I think the paella will make a good roasting pan (I currently use a hotel pan). I mostly snagged it because shipping was 50 bucks if I didn't hit 150. I rescued a 10 inch "Blue Steel" Made In pan from my uncles house a few months ago. My aunt had warmed up some sauerkraut in it and ate 50% of the seasoning off. The pan was a touch rusty when I found it. Everyone quit using it once it was ugly. Now that I've been cooking out of it for a few months I'm sending it back to him all pretty again. Hopefully aunty remembers to use stainless for the sauerkraut! One of my main users is a 10.5 inch cast iron Stargazer. After using my uncles carbon for a few months I'm ready to buy my own. I had been looking at Heart and Spade Forge out of Roanoke VA. Pretty pans. Pretty expensive. Especially when you could buy copper for the same price. I'm glad I snagged 3 pans instead of 1.
  7. I also saw the deal after it was too late. Luckily, Wal-Mart was also swlling it for 90. Snagged one.
