[The Bay] De Buyer Element B Carbon steel pans, 9.5 inch to 12.5 inch, $45+

I've always hated Teflon pans, they don't last more than a couple of years and the chemicals are scary. This year I discovered Carbon steel pans as a non-stick alternative and its been a game changer, you can read more about carbon Steel here:
https://www.seriouseats.com/2015/03/wha ... kware.html

The Bay has the Mineral B pans from De Buyer on sale, with the 9.5 inch coming in at $55, with a $10 off coupon E24352R, comes to $45. Shipping is free and you can use Rakuten for 12% cashback in top of that.

Usually these pans run around $70 or so for the smallest, expensive as they are made in France, but they will literally last a lifetime, almost indestructible. These are types of pans used in profesional kitchens.

Sizes come from 9.5 inch, 10inch,11 inch and 12 inch

Thanks, ordered the 12.5". Used E24352R coupon code to get $10 off then 12% Rakuten cash back, this brings it close to the low price at Amazon.

The only thing I don't like about these professional pans is the way the handle cuts into my palm when it's heavy. I need to wrap a towel around it or file down the edges.

I used to work in a restaurant and our pans were like this and mind you in a professional setting those were usually more loaded with much more food. ManCookingWomanCooking

I second the recommendation on these pans. I got them when Costco had them a few years back. Hands down the best alternative to non-stick coated frying pans. We've tried Lodge cast iron pans, stainless steel All-Clad, and enamel coated Le Creuset pans and only the Lodge cast iron comes close. I would say the only downsides are that they are heavier, they rust if left wet and not as good as non-stick pans but I preferred to avoid the questionable coating.

Got the Mineral B 10” pan. Can vouch for these if you’re on the fence.

Highly recommend. I use it daily, and is non stick.
I can even get eggs with no oil when the pan is properly preheated.

Good buy if you don’t want to use Teflon etc...

Oh, let's see what sizes I'm missing. Wife is already p*ssed about all the pots and pans I have bought. What's one or two more? Face With Tears Of Joy
I know, forgiveness...something, something...permission, but I think I'm already way past that point in our relationship.

ah, found the amazon orders. already have 8/9.5/12.5; paid $34/43/63 before tax for them. Hmm, maybe pass on this sale; doesn't seem cheap enough compared to those prices.

Seasoning the pan is key.

Great pans, I have 2 including the country pan but that one somehow got a rounded bottom (deformed). It might have been a quick temp change(ie. Put cold water in a hot pan).

About the same price. The 9.5 comes to $45 instead of $43 but if you factor in the 12.5% from rakuten this is a better deal.

I got mine off amazon earlier in lock down. They were hard to come by (might still be, havent checked) but they were on massive sales. Got the 8” and 11” and they’re both great.

They say the handles cant handle the oven but i seasoned mine at 450F for an hour and it came out ok but i technically do not recommend it since the manufacturer says it cant take it.

Seasoning is really key but if you do what they say then you’ll be ok. You’ll be able to fry an egg after a few uses.

These pans are heavier than aluminum, cant be helped, but they will last forever. Make sure you clean them as soon as they cool down!

Keep a stainless steel and/or non stick pan on hand just in case. Seasoning doesnt like acidic foods.

If I am not mistaken 400 F for 10 minutes is for handles/in oven only. Correct? We can take it to maximum heat on stove top as it is carbon steel.
