Snow Peak Addiction

Honu

lost on the mainland
Yeah its basically like carbon steel pans such as DeBuyer etc... or at least mine was so the coating on mine I burned off right away all over the whole thing as instructed by Snow Peak Japan via a Japan site I used to go to that is now gone and he was a huge snowpeak guy basically it was a protective coating

anyway burnt off and then treated it like my carbon steel pans that come coated which I do use at home and are slick as non stick and carbon steel and cast iron are basically treated and worked with the same way I do prefer carbon steel pans myself :)

Don’t use it much but a few times and find it is tough to heat that large a area easily based on fire or charcoal so might sell it with my other stuff
I tend to use my partner steel griddle which is anodized aluminum on car camping or expedition days :) the reason is you can leave anodized aluminum out all night after a long day and not worry about it !!! IMHO for any vehicle based griddle the partner steel anodized aluminum is the best thing going its light its durable its super easy to clean etc...

I tend to use a old cast iron around home almost daily since I eat carnivore/keto so eat meat every day

So my snowpeak kinda sits and I try to use it once in a while
I do love its deep edges my issue is the bit of warping I get ? Or hot spots on the partner stove
If I use it around home after proper season lower heat like my carbon steel I can use it BUT then I again have to large a surface and go back to my cast iron that sits outside ? Or my debuyer pan ?
OK great now I am going to pull it out tomorrow and play with it :)



Does anybody own the Iron Griddle Plate?

I used mine for the first time today in my Takibi over a small bed of lump charcoal to make some banana pancakes for the kids.

Im wondering if I cleaned it improperly as I used my spatula to scrape the caramelized banana off while it was still hot and then once I transferred to sink to use a sponge, I noticed some significant discoloration (I think the coating came off).

Any tips on how to properly clean or has anybody else had that issue?

Love the weight and how it fits flush within the Takibi fire and grill!

could someone give me a run down on the difference between the low chair and low chair lux. All I can tell is the netted pocket in the back and maybe nicer wood finish on the lux. Not sure if that’s the only difference to justify the $50 difference. Anyone? Thanks in advance!

In addition to what you listed, the frame on the luxury version is made of an alloy that’s stronger than pure aluminum and a bit lighter in weight. But the back on the lux is 7 inches lower; that’s a dealbreaker for me, as I have back issues and I’m tall.
