So , Are they new ?
Any markings on them ?
( I remember when I was a kid mom would sprinkle salt in a hot pan before dropping in a steak which somehow kept it from sticking. ! I'm not a big salt fan so I haven't tried it in many many moons.)
I've seen ancient dried out rusty as an old abandoned model T cast iron pans be turned to like new with an afternoon of TLC.

I like the older ones better  (Grandma's were smooth , so .LOL ),  the new crop have an "improved" inner surface that I would immediately want to grind smooth .

Maybe people that are using the new style ones can comment on how they perform ? 
I've also seen claims of not needing to be seasoned ,,,,true or "adspeak" ?

The monsters wanted Canadian hot cakes or pancakes. Russian ones dough is more stretchy like a crepe or pasta.

So...


I tried and had mixed results. Without going into Sternwake levels (not dishing here just being honest, baking tests are hardly as interesting or repeatable as electronics) ok.

Fail one. I blamed the ingredient combination. This was the same for fails 2 through 6.

Called my sister, as my Mom doesn’t hear well enough for Sat phone call. Got my Moms recipe with California sisters added “to make it healthier” suggestions.

F@:;k that. Original recipe test 1.1 fail. Figured it was the flour. Only thing that could be different. Unless the cow milk is suspect?

Baker inquiry performed and “proper flour” obtained. Actually a mix of three flours to mimic Duram wheat/winter wheat flour. Back to the kitchen.

Success in as much as taste, structure, and fluffy. Rate of cooking difficult. First one burnt, next three to five, perfect. Then chaos.

Enter cast iron Soviet pan, obtained from Neighbour for testing purposes. Mom always used cast iron.

CadPan V9.34b successful. First till 21st perfect golden brown, fluffy goodness. Monsters loved them as did the family. Didn’t love the unobtainable Canadian Maple Syrup price. I swear to god it must be smuggled next to Columbian marching powder for the price. Small bottle, think American Mickey, seventy bucks!!!

Pan returned we needed our own. Several attempts to season. Failed to be perfect. Once again call to sister.

“Use Lard. I tried coconut oil because it is healthier and it works but only for so long and you can get rusting. Save the trouble use Lard and burn the shit out of it. Clean thoroughly and reseason with butter. Reheat to very hot and use sunflower oil. Should give you a good base”

I have “the pancake pan”.

That reminds me of one of my favorite OHenry stories. The Pimienta Pancakes. 

The monster will love it.
