Ty and Hilditch,
I make rice regularly in a #8 WW and yes, it does leave a light layer of starch around the pan. ( I rinse and toast my rice before cooking) However, I always wipe down the interior with canola oil after washing and drying the pan. The white goes away, the seasoning isn't affected ans nothing further is needed.

Ty, I just found out a few minutes ago that among many other names and meanings that Ty is also a Chinese origin surname. The ĎAh soí came out of my subconscious instead of ĎAh yesí without considering ethnicity. No beratement meant. I apologize to you and anyone else I may have offended.

Jack, I donít oil my cookware after cleaning so historically I just lived with the starch residue until the next use. Actually, that thin layer of starch covered by oil or frying a mess of bacon will turn into carbon and be a good layer of seasoning down the road. So now we have three ways to handle a starch residue issue.

Hilditch,

I was bothered by the "Ah, So Ty" but for a different reason. I figured you were sarcastically poking fun at my inexperience without offering the benefit of your own experience in pointing out a better way. Thanks for the apology but it is not necessary. I took your compliment the wrong way and for that I apologize.

As for the white residue I still get a little and pretty much ignore it since it does seem to help build up the seasoning.

I also don't cook anything with cheese in it like last night's cheddar potato soup.

Not counting grilled cheese sandwiches! (Too late to edit my other post.)

This reminded me of the worst, uneatable grilled cheese sandwich I ever had in a rural cafe in GA. It came out of something that looked like this, but not that clean.



I watched as the helper swiped two pieces of square Wonder bread with some sort of room temperature liquid, added one slice of pre-wrapped cheese, put it in the sandwich maker and then forcefully pressed down on the top. I took 1/2 bite of this 3/16Ē sandwich before getting out of there. I didnít even want my $2 back, I just wanted out!
