Care instructions:

These steel pans get their non-stick corrosion protection from cooking oils. As the metal heats, oils absorb and burn into the surface. When the pan is new it should only be used for frying until they have a strong black seasoning layer, then they will be able to take any meals. It is recommended to put the pans onto a high heat at the beginning of every use so the seasoning gets better with use. Steel will rust if left unprotected, but if cared for, will only get better with age.

Avoid rust by washing pans with hot water only (no dish detergent) and scrub to remove any food residue if necessary; do not leave them to soak. Make sure they are completely dry before putting them away. If a pan ever becomes rusty it's an easy fix, a scouring pad will remove the rust. Then re-season with oil.
If a pan ever loses its seasoning (it starts to look dull), bring it to a high heat and apply a thin coat of oil until glossy. Pick an oil with a high smoke point to season: sunflower, rice bran or peanut.

Avoid cooling pans rapidly, this can cause them to warp.
