Place empty pan on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. This will bring your pan up to temperature, while compressing steel’s natural pores for less sticking. Add a drop of water to your empty pan.

When a splash of water forms round balls (could be one or several) that bounce around the surface of your pan, your preheating is done.
