Is carbon steel supposed to look like this? I’ve seasoned, reseasoned, wash with mild soap and water, dry it over the stove, avoid cooking acidic foods in it and it still looks like this. It used to be way blotchy before but it has gotten darker on the bottom and has gradually moved its way up.

I don’t know if I’m doing it right. I’m used to the black patina of cast iron.

That looks weird. Have you tried looking up some YouTube tutorials?

Yeah, they say carbon steel is supposed to look blotchy. Just have to keep cooking with it and it will eventually darken. I just don’t know if I’m doing it right. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Good tutorial on carbon steel wok and seasoning over at Woks of Life. Agree it doesn’t look normal, but maybe reading it you can identify where things went wrong.

I checked with a cooking forum and they said it’s normal. It will darken over time but will never look perfect. I thought I ruined it but I didn’t. I just got it a couple months ago.

Our wok took a good 10 years to build up the black carbon look. We tried speeding it up and oiling and heating in the oven but found the only way was to cook in it.

Hi! So glad to find this bowl!
Today, I was looking through other bowls and see comments like: “Anyone tired of chasing money?” “Is it just me or as I get older do you realize how little awards and accolades mean?” And I’m reminded of how grateful I am to have my hope in something other than my work. I hope my coworkers see that in me, too. That I work hard but advertising is not what fulfills me.

This is a very subjective question, but I’m interested in getting a variety of opinions. I graduated in 2019 and got what I initially thought was a dream job in local government dealing with civil matters. I’ve reached a point where I’m getting very bored with the work, which is 75% contract review. My talents and interests are in writing and research, which I had been told I’d be doing tons of during my interview. Do I jump ship? When? And what sort of job is ideal for a new lawyer?
