You know those bullet points in the Amazon listing are nonsense, right?

"100-percent natural" - False. Steel is man-made.
" and 99-percent pure iron" - False. It's carbon steel.
"Guaranteed without ptfe or pfoa and no chemicals added" - True!
"naturally non-stick after seasoning" - IF you season it that way*.
"Bee wax was discovered by debuyer" - False.
"to help protect these pans against oxidation" - Yes, until it gets to you. Bare steel would rust.
" and assist in seasoning" - False. You need to remove the wax before you season it.
"Care : don't put it in the dishwasher" - Obviously.
"deglaze with hot water for washing, use coarse salt for sterilizing" - Or season it like below and just wash it with a bit of dish soap when needed. No need to sterilize a frying pan!
"Made in france [sic]" - True!

I recommend reading the above, but here's a video that uses the same idea:





EDIT: I should also point out that these are great pans. Be aware that the 8" pan has a cooking area of less than 6". Thanks OP.

I have one of these, but prefer it a bit less to my Lodge cast iron pan, because the de Buyer has a coated handle that isn't oven safe for high heat or extended periods of time. So you can't bake most things or put it under the broiler if you want. If I was going to buy another carbon steel, I would look for one with a plain steel or aluminum handle.

careful with the B element one tho, the handle has a silicone coating or some other coating of some sort, you have to make sure the pan is completely cooled down or the coating will smear

Carbon steel is an alloy that is mostly Iron with a small amount of carbon so technically not false.

99 percent iron would be about right, with the rest being carbon and other elements.

I think people are not reading this properly. The full sentence is "Bee wax was discovered by debuyer as a by-product in nature to help protect these pans against oxidation and assist in seasoning " [bolding added]. I read this to mean they discovered this use for beeswax, not that for thousands of years humans didn't realize what beeswax was before deBuyer came along (pretty sure the ancient Greeks and other ancient civilizations used beeswax for a variety of purposes). Also keep in mind this is likely translated from French.

No, it won't smear. It's silicone (or it might have been changed to enamel - I've seen both claims now; mine were silicone), good for far above cooking temperatures. But if you like you can burn it off with your oven's self-cleaning cycle and then season it to rustproof it. Then you can cook above 500F if you really want to.

Yes, carbon steel is made from iron. And it takes on very different properties than iron, thus the whole reason for doing it. So yes, it's technically quite false to say that steel is iron.

OK, if you want to interpret that as saying the steel is 99% iron, that's valid. But there's absolutely no point in saying that because that's exactly what carbon steel is: iron with 1% to 2% carbon. The problem is it appears to be saying that it's an iron pan and the iron is 99% pure. And enough people interpret it that way that it shows up in reviews - people calling it a cast iron pan.
