I understand cooking meat on them is excellent due to the retention of heat vs shitty thin alu pans

do you not oil it a bit after cleaning?

Have got these Anolon Nouvelle Non stick pans like the above. Have got a part copper base, warm up fast, good heat retention and safe to go in the oven. They wash up so easy, never have to scrub them hard, if at all.

If you can get them sent over from the US then you can get them cheap.
They’ve got a stainless steel sauté pan which I’ll get eventually as well.

Yeah drop of oil and wipe with kitchen paper
Seasoning is easy indeed, just is a bit of smokey so make sure you open a window Eye-wink
