Dye pans question

Postby marmoset » Sun Jul 05, 2009 3:28 pm

Does anyone use multiple pans, each dedicated to a family of colors?
Some of my lighter colors have been unsatisfactory recently even though I thoroughly scrub my pan in between runs.
My pan is Teflon coated, if that makes a difference. I am hunting down a non-coated pan to see if there is any change in my colors. I am wondering if the darker dyes are soaking into the Teflon coating and releasing into the lighter colored dyes.

thats not a bad idea!! I personally use the same pan for every color. I clean it really well with soap and i have not had any problems.

I've got a couple of thick-bottomed stainless gems that I can scrub clean and put any color dye in. I found them at the second thrift store I checked, 3.99 each or something like that. definitely less than 10 bucks for the both of them. I guess nobody wanted them because the handles sucked, but I removed them anyways, to lessen the chance of incidental movement of the pan by careless elbows.

I suppose it's possible that the coating is absorbing dye. Scrub it completely clean, as well as you can, and then boil some plain water in it. That'll tell you if the pan is absorbing dye.

I cook a lot, used to do it professionally, and I still have the teflon hatred running strong in my veins. Get rid of that thing!
I have one non-stick pan in my house, for my wife to use when she gets bold enough to attempt cooking.


Oh, and I hope you save the dye between sessions. One box of RIT should last you a long, long time.

Don't worry about that! I's a cheap sucka!

Thanks for the input, I have been searching for months for non-non-stick (?!?) pans. Goodwill, YMCA Thrift Store, garage sales, Big Lots, Walmart, college guys who are moving, etc. Either noone has any for me or they are too small.

My next few dyes are all 1 color blacks so I'm fine with what I have... for right now.

I have 2 pans and I try to keep my dark dyes in one of em. But it happens to me too. My blood red that used to be super vibrant has picked up a lot of black so it comes out really dark.
I usually do like chuck and boil the hell out of some water to help clean it off. But it's still there. I clean my pan off after each use too.. But it's still there.

I use 1 stainless pot that I got at Ollie's I think, for $2.99.

For the record, that's not how I wash my pans, I merely recommended the water-boiling as a method to see if the pan coating was absorbing and releasing dye. I wash mine with dish soap and a green scrubby, works like a charm on stainless steel.

Acid, the most likely cause of vibrancy loss of your blood-red is from using it after a black RIT dip. The black dye will seep back into the pan from the dyed disc (especially when it's fresh) and mix with the pure red color, darkening it as you said.

I'm prolly gonna get another pan like what Chuck described in a couple of days. I've got a few dyes I wanna complete for this tourney and I don't want the colors to be all jacked up and dark

I just picked up a tinplate pie pan at my local dollar store (the hard kind, not the foil) and im hoping it will work... it looks good anyway.
I've always believed not matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to make the next one.

It should work, but I'd be worried about lack of handles. Pan + no handles = spill of liquid rit death.

I picked up a stainless steel pan a few weeks ago for all of my vibrant colors. I was surprised that it was so hard to find one that wasn't coated with anything
