This oval pan is the ideal size for cooking a whole chicken, roasting vegetables like carrots or brussels sprouts, and making perfectly crispy potatoes. Once the pan reaches temperatures over 300 degrees, the carbon steel activates the Maillard reaction, creating a caramelized crust and sealing in the moisture of the food. The simple, elegant design of the pan means it can move effortlessly from oven to table.
Our favorite pans for cooking a wide variety of meat and vegetables, the De Buyer Mineral B line features thick carbon steel coated with organic beeswax, which protects the pan from oxidizing and helps begin the seasoning process. The more it's used, the better the pan gets. If treated right, the natural seasoning will build up over time creating a perfect non-stick surface without the dangerous chemicals used in teflon-like coatings. For advice on seasoning and maintaining your pan, check out our journal. We also share a recipe for a perfect roast chicken using the pan.
