[Amazon.ca] Matfer Bourgeat Black Steel Round Frying Pan, 10 1/4"

10 1/4" Matfer Bourgeat Carbon Steel pan. This is the model that was top rated by America's Test Kitchen. I was using a De Buyer 10" carbon steel pan previous and it totally put my Lodge Cast Irons into retirement. Carbon steel has all the great qualities of cast iron, except lighter and compared to modern cast iron finishes (rough), carbon steel comes super smooth. If you were thinking of getting a cast iron skillet and sanding it smooth, this is the better option. The Matfer Bourgeat has a welded handle so no rivets to trap food. I have the 12 7/8" version of this exact pan, and it's a pleasure to use. This 10 1/4" size is perfect for single servings.

This is the lowest price on Amazon according to:

FYI it doesn't come pre-seasoned but this video's method video's method is quick, easy, and works well! (No need for the time consuming cast iron style seasoning)

Good deal. The rivetless design makes cleaning easier, but carbon steel definitely has a learning curve. But totally worth it.

Shweet. This is is one of the pans I was looking at when buying my steel pans, and probaby would have got it if it was closer to the de Buyer in price at the time.
Thanks OP.

Interesting that it looks like a De Buyer pan

I have both the De Buyer and the Matfer. The De Buyer is thicker gauge steel, so theoretically it will be less prone to warping. But the Matfer is not thin by any means and in my opinion the weight savings from the Matfer over the De Buyer, and the rivet-less design give it a slight edge. Both are great pans an in practice work and season equally well. I would get whichever was the better deal (cheaper), and not look back.
