We have seasoned our Chinese as well, but after 8 years we have decider to get rid of it.
We have one casserole which was made before first war/ 1905/ and taste of food was completely different then from cheap Chinese s...t.

Now we have Lodge and cooking and food is gorgeous.
Did you try to cook same food in Chinese cast iron and any other proper cast iron cookware?

No to be honest, but it still didn't taste any different from what was cooked in my stainless kitchen saucepans, and why would I spend 5 times the money to get the same effect? Very Happy I've been using the one I have for almost 30yrs (maybe cheap Chinese stuff was better back then eh?)

Beside the point though really, I was going to show what I ended up with. Not ideally what I would prefer, but for gas only cooking will do well enough for now. Like I said, don't like the handles but have a pot gripper on the way so all is well





and I have just bought a 1 litre kettle off ebay for my cuppa when out on day trips Very Happy

Not sure of the make we had, but the handells were the same as the ones you bought,
but with the set we had all the coating on the inside came of after a while, Dilys put some
holes in the bottom and used them for plant pots. clinking teacups

Hope yours are better than ours, lol!

See your dog's in the background patiently waiting for his dinner! Wire-haired terrier?

Regarding "Touring Gear", I've known the guys there for a number of years now and can honestly say they are everything you would want from a company - a good reputation, knowledgeable, honest when quizzed about products, and they sell quality gear. Never heard a bad word said about them in fact, something that over the course of a decade has to be a fair indicator. Recommend them to anyone! cheers

He's a miniature Yorkshire Terrier.

He keeps his distance from cooking fires ever since when as a puppy we placed a tin of steamed treacle pudding on the edges of the fire to see if it would cook successfully. It didnt - the tin exploded shooting its contents in all directions including the dog!! Embarassed

I had a foreman on nights that heated his tinned beans and sausages on the cooker in the bait room. We kept telling him it would explode. It did one night as he answered the phone.
We all took turns going in and watching him trying to clean beans off the walls.

What is it about beans - internally or externally they seem to explode?

While buying a non stick cookware, the first thing that needs to be checked is the coating which is used.Non stick cookwares coated with Teflon is harmful for Human Body. It has a substance called Carcinogen which can initiate cancer. There are several coating which are 100% natural.Ecolon is one of them. Neoflam is manufacturing non stick cookwares coated with Ecolon.

How did you make it? Did you weld SS?

Yes, welding stainless steel is very easy if you use the correct equipment. You can use standard arc (stick) welding with compatible rods, MIG with compatible MIG wire and argon shielding gas, and TIG with argon gas and the correct DC machine.
I have all three, and my employers of that time also had all three.

Of course you get a stainless weld, thats the reason you use a compatible welding rod or wire. Mine used a stainless steel called T316, so you use a 316 stainless rod for arc welding, for MIG you use 316 wire, and for TIG you use a 316 filler wire.
