Hi. I'm not a chef or a skilled cook, just a novice starting out.
I've ordered a 24cm (9 inch) de Buyer 'Mineral Round Country pan with high side' (to begin with I want to use just one pan so that I can get a good patina going, and this pan looks like it can be used as both a frying pan and a wok)
Mineral Round Country pan with high side
Having looked online it seems there's lots of conflicting advice about how best to season these pans.
I don't want to botch the seasoning, and so was wondering which oil is best to use for seasoning a pan like this?
One thing in particular I wondered - are unrefined oils suitable for seasoning? (eg coconut or avocado oil)
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
