[Amazon.ca] $52.44 Matfer Bourgeat 62002 Gray Black Steel Round Frying Pan, 9 1/2-Inch

For those missing out on the recent de Buyer pans, the Matfer 9.5-inch is $52.44. Not quite the lowest 3c price of $46.80, but that was over 2 years ago.

Temporarily out of stock but still can be ordered.

I bought this pan about two years ago.... the protective film is EXTREMELY difficult to remove. I doubt it's bee bax, like others have mentioned in the reviews, it's some kind of lacquer...... almost impossible to completely remove. Due to the incomplete removal of the protective film, my first pass of seasoning didn't go well, and then I tried oven cleaner and bar keepers friend, with lots of elbow grease, and yet I still don't know if I actually got rid of all those god damn coating.....

Have you tried putting it in the oven and run the autoclean cycle?

You will know when all the protective coating is removed because the pan will literally start rusting right before your eyes if it is still wet. When this happens, give it a final scrub with barkeepers, rinse and dry it quickly. Then you can start seasoning. If you don't see it rusting, there is still something on the surface of the steel.

No, my oven doesn't have autoclean function, I think autoclean may work.
I've already sold that pan for cheap after repetitive seasoning fails......
Now I just stick with cast iron... after all, carbon steel isn't much lighter anyway, and I find it a lot harder to get a durable nice seasoning on carbon steel...
