This round frying pan is perfect for searing and cooking a variety of foods, both meat and vegetables. Once the pan reaches temperatures over 300 degrees, the surface activates the Maillard reaction, creating a perfectly caramelized crust and sealing in the juices of the meat. It's also perfect for sauteing greens, browning onions, and making omelettes and crepes. The long ergonomic handle allows one to brace the heavy pan against the forearm for lifting, and the slanted Lyonnaise sides allow foods to easily slide out of the pan. The larger pan features a second handle for easier lifting.
The long handle of these pans is coated, to prevent it from getting too hot while cooking, and that prevents it from being able to be used in the oven. For a totally oven-safe version, see our Mineral B Pro line.
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.
