Do Stainless Pans Improve With Age?
Yes, I know you can't season stainless, but I swear I've read in several places that the pans become more nonstick the more you use them. Steel also has pores so maybe they fill too with polymerized oil. Is this just folly, or have you found the performance of your older stainless improves with age? I think I also read that some chefs treat their new stainless to improve it. I think they did something with salt to it.
