What is laminated steel?

Laminated steel is the traditional material used for the Plancha in Spain.

Laminated steel is well known for its excellent heat transmission. The laminating makes the cooking surface completely smooth and resistant to shocks and scratching.

The thickness of 6 millimeters allows to achieve an extraordinary thermal inertia that enables you to cook and have fun without any restraints. Additionally, the laminated steel cooking surface is refractory, i.e. it resists extremely high temperatures.

The laminated steel cooking surface is not rustfree. It reacts sensitively to humidity if it is not well protected. Normally it is enough cover the cooking surface with a thin layer of oil before storing it for the winter.

How do I clean the laminated steel plancha?

  • I want to clean my plancha fast and easy: Cleaning spatula + water

    After you are finished with cooking, take a stainless steel cleaning spatula and remove bigger food residues from the hot cooking surface. Push them into the grease tray in the back. To completely remove any other residues, pour a little water or ice cubes on the hot griddle. Wait until it has vaporized and then again remove the remains from the laminated steel cooking surface with the spatula.

  • After having cooked fish, I would now like to cook fruits on my plancha: white vinegar

    There is an easy and efficient way to remove smells and aromas from the plancha. Pour a little white vinegar on the hot cooking surface and then proceed exactly the same as for the cleaning with water. Because vinegar neutralises smells, you can now prepare a different meal, without being unpleasantly surprised by fruits that taste like fish.

  • I would like for my plancha to look like new: Steel wool + ellbow grease

    You would like your cooking surface to look like it did on the first day. For this, you need some steel wool or piece of sand paper (grammage 1000g). Pour a little water on the cold plancha and thoroughly scrub it with the steel wool or sand paper for a few minutes. Your griddle now looks like new.

It is important to regularly oil the laminated steel cooking surface, when it is not being used. Because this is a raw material, the plancha is very sensitive to humidity and can therefore oxidise on the surface. In this case, the rust has to be thoroughly removed with steel wool or sand paper.
