    Why do you say “For daily cleaning, warm soapy water is sufficient. Clean your pans thoroughly after each use. Food films left of the pan may cause discoloration and sticking” but in the video you just wipe down with a wet paper towel?

      @Geoff This was for the first video I did.  Thanks for catching that…I will make the change, you do not need to use soapy water and shouldn’t after you season.
      FYI, the first video I did on this topic was just how to cook on stainless steel and not how to season.  Sorry for the confusion.

    I recently switched to induction so we had to purchase a new cookware set. My husband convinced me to go s/s with no non stick coating. I was/am intimidated but know its better than all the chemicals of the non stick coating. We have the Cuisinart MultiClad pro s/s set. The first 3 things I cooked (Scrambled egg, grilled cheese, chicken breast) I was able to cook it beautifully without a hitch. However since then EVERYTHING has been sticking. I’m starting to get a little discouraged. I use coconut oil and even tried seasoning the pan but still no luck. Any suggestions. I have followed your videos to a T (using my tablet as I was doing it so I could stop/start as I needed) but still no luck.

      MamaTaylorIf it is sticking then you most likely don’t have the pan hot enough.  Try allowing your pan to preheat a bit longer (maybe another minute) and come back and let me know how it works and then we will go from there.  I allow my pan for my eggs to preheat sometimes 2-3 minutes before adding the eggs.  (it all depends on the temperature of heat you have it on)

    I have Cuisinart Multiclad Pro stainless steel also and it sticks like crazy. I am equally discouraged. It will not even come clean with Barkeeper’s Friend. It seems there are permanent stains on them even though I have only used the pans a few times.
