Nonstick Stainless Steel?
That's right. Stainless steel cookware can be seasoned in much the same as cast iron. The result is a nonstick surface that has all the advantages of stainless steel without any of the drawbacks of nonstick or cast iron cookware.
Step 1: Preheat fry pan on medium or medium-high for 2 minutes.
Step 2: Add oil to the pan, enough to cover the surface with about 1/8". Make sure to use an oil to the pan that has a high smoke point (vegetable oil or canola oil work well).
Step 3: Leave the pan on the heat until the oil begins smoking, about 6 minutes.
Step 4: Remove the pan from the heat and let sit until the pan and oil is cool.
Step 5: Dump oil from the pan and use a paper towel to wipe out any excess. This leaves you with a glossy stainless steel surface that is nonstick!
Treat this pan as you would any other seasoned pan. To clean, just wipe with a paper towel. Washing with soapy water will remove most of the coating, so you will have to re-season the pan afterwards by repeating the steps above. Props to Epicurious for this method.
