Regardless, Andy....Chief Longwind makes a point I can't argue with.
I never fretted about seasoning anything but cast iron..or carbon steel. But I cannot categorically state that the same procedures don't help. Mind you now...this is simply my humble opinion.

I've never had good lucky frying a steak in a stainless pan. I'm lucky enough to have a Wolf stove and a steak would be cooked on high heat in a cast iron frying pan that I put on top of the stove with both my arthritic hands. If stainless was my only choice, I would plan to have a box of SOS pads on hand for clean up.

Simmer it with a bunch of white vinegar and baking soda. I've resurrected a few pans with this. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat. I use both SS and CI for steaks.

For reference, as I was too foolish not to post a link to the good Chief's advice...

Ahem...I beg forgiveness from all concerned. My post should have read Chief Longwind. I have corrected my error and apologize for any inconvenience. I gotta get my eyes checked one of these days!

The chief doesn't mention stainless in his seasoning cookware post. If he did, I'd respectfully disagree with him.

Yes, I'm wondering if I should switch to nonstick since I would prefer not to use a heavy cast iron pan.

Seriously. Try the vinegar, it always works for me.
