2 Added "rinse in very hot water" as described in directions from new de Buyer steel pan
source | link

From what i understand, NEW pans come coated with a wax or lacquer to prevent them from rusting after manufacture. The boiled potato peel water removes this layer. You do not need to fry them, just bring them to light boil in the pan and then after about 15 mins, use the hot potato peel water to wash the pan surfaces. You then rinse the pan "in very hot water" and then dry the pan and then start your seasoning protocol.
