Made to withstand the abuse of a professional French kitchen, the Mineral B De Buyer carbon steel pan not only boasts utilitarian beauty, but also performs exceptionally well for browning, searing, and frying on stovetop. The heavy gauge steel retains heat, while reducing the weight typical of their cast iron cousins. Splayed sides allow for rapid evaporation of moisture, improving the maillard reaction of this frypan achieving the best browning.

CARE & USE
Wash pan thoroughly in hot water to remove bee's wax coating and reveal raw steel beneath. To season this pan prior to use, we recommend following Cook's Illustrated's approach, using food olive oil, salt, and potato peels. Trust us on this. You won't be sorry. Oil pan thoroughly with each use. To clean, add 1 tablespoon of coarse salt and oil and scour with a paper towel. Rinse off excess with water and no soap. Use a soft brush if needed. We love our Japanese palm scrubber. Wipe dry and apply a light coat of oil to store.
