[Best Buy] De Buyer Pans on sale

There are multiple De Buyer Frying Pans on sale at Best Buy. I tried to compare with amazon current and camel price history, it's hard to match by mode l number (as they different ones), but comparing by size shows this is not the lowest ones, but very very close.

So I take it that you have nothing left to learn?

I actually appreciate some of the side commentary about how to use and maintain products. Over the years, I've learned a great deal from fellow RFDers and that goes well beyond learning which store has the lowest price for a particular product.

I totally agree. I always learn something new with the seasoning, even though I have all my pans seasoned.

Totally recommend these pans though, but got to spend the time and effort to season properly.

I'm considering buying the "country style" pan for use as a stirfry pan/wok. On glass induction - anyone have any thoughts?
I have a couple De Buyer frying pans already.

Since you asked, here's the best info I've found:

A blog that explains the science involved: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/ ... cast-iron/

A blog that tests/reviews the above method: http://www.thekitchn.com/i-seasoned-my- ... ned-224612#_

A video demonstrating essentially the same thing:

True, everyone's an expert at something.

I bought 3 pans years ago and my seasoning never really worked well. Did various methods from lard to olive oil to flaxseed oil, still subpar results. Now they sit in a drawer and never get used.

I should probably get my act together and try it one more time or just sell em. Amazing pans if you get em done right, just seemed to elude me despite me thinking I had a modicum of culinary/technical ability lol.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

I bought the 9" crepe pan and an 11" fry pan about 2-3 years ago from Costco. The crepe pan is very versatile and it has become my favourite pan for eggs, pancakes, french toast, even fried steaks and fish. We use it way more than the fry pan and I am thinking about buying the 12" crepe pan now....

As for seasoning, I used the thin flaxseed oil + bake at high temp several times method but found that didn't work very well. In another thread on these pans, someone suggested a potato skins + oil method (link below). So I sanded my pans down to the bare iron using 60 grit sandpaper and restarted. The potato skins method worked much better - the only suggestion I have is to use a steel or high heat silicone spatula during the seasoning because of the very high heat. I first used a cheap plastic one and the plastic melted into the seasoning (I started over by sanding it down again).

Once it is seasoned, don't wash it with soap and water after cooking. Just wipe it down with a paper towel and it's good to go for the next use.

That was my first debuyer product and its also the most used (I stir fry a lot). I love the depth, but definitely also heavier.

Is De Buyer a higher quality brand? I am in need of a new frying pan... all non-stick pan I tried failed after a few months (med heat, no metal utensils). Been resorting to use my heavy cast iron lodge skillet for simple fried eggs.

...too bad specs online doesnt display the weight of these pans

Love this pan. I did 12 iterations of flax seed oil baking in the oven, to season the pan before I cooked with it.
There is no comparison when making bacon and eggs!
