Great pan! I own several carbon steel pans and this is the nicest by far. Stainless steel handle (oven safe), great weight, and quality finishing. I’ll purchase the 12 inch for sure and the 8 inch when they come out with it. Saw the review on Uncle Scott’s Kitchen YouTube channel and was very interested!
My fault I didn’t pay attention, but I was disappointed to see that the 12” doesn’t refer to the cooking surface. So, it’s not much bigger than my existing cast iron skillet. That said, with the side edge expanding it a bit it does hold a bit more and I still love it. Hopefully, you’ll add a 14” one soon!
If you have an electric range or induction cooktop, please PAY ATTENTION! You need a carbon steel pan that can stay in a 450°F oven for more than 1 hour. Stovetop seasoning does not work well with electric cooktops. Your oven, however, works very well. De Buyer makes great pans that are built like tanks and don't warp (at least in my experience). You will have to buy their more expensive Pro line with stainless steel handles to achieve this. I bought the 10-inch Baking Steel made by De Buyer and I love it so much. The Baking Steel carbon steel fry pan is so responsive. It heats up and cools much faster than cast iron. Think your pan is getting a bit hot? Just remove from the heat for a few seconds and you're right as rain. If I turn down the heat on my electric range there is a noticeable delay cooling down. If I'm using cast iron it still takes too long for it to cool down. I wish I'd gone carbon steel years ago. The picture shows my 10-inch Baking Steel fry pan after cleanup from its bacon and eggs morning chores. The eggs were all slippy-slidey in the pan (for those of you who want to know).
The Carbon Steel Pan is amazing! Perfect weight. Cooking with it is a joy. Great for any style of food. This is one for the Ages, very durable.
It’s an eye-sore, but it works beautifully!:)
This is my Go to pan for cooking! I love it!!
The pan is the best pan anyone could buy. Will be buying more. The more u use it the better it is. Have used this for searing steaks and then directly to oven.
Just received the 10" and unboxed it. Figured I'd upload a photo of it next to a 9" lodge skillet for comparison. So far seems good, will season soon.
Bought for a friend Loves it
This is my third piece of baking steel cookware. We started with the pizza steel, and the way that performed blew us away. I then bought a 12” pan for my wife, and it’s is unbelievable. Her chicken cutlets have never been this crispy. We love these products so much that we started buying them as gifts for our large (and growing) Italian family. Customer service is second to none, and craftsmanship is top notch. I can’t say enough great things about this company and their products. Trust me, you need these products in your kitchen. You won’t be disappointed.
I would purchase larger frying pans if they were offered.
Great pan and great customer service.
Bought the pan for a CIA graduation gift. Looked and felt amazing and I’m definitely going to order one for myself.
Purchased the 12” skillet for a family member. It does a great job! Thank you!
I'm still new to the carbon steel pan and when I received it, unfortunately it had some rust spots on it but after cleaning it with mild soap, that disappeared. I'm not an expert on this pan and it takes a little more finesse since I'm used to non-stick pans. I've used it several times now and it gets easier and better with each use. Perhaps after I've had it for a couple of months, I'll come and review. It's really heavy for me so that is an issue but it's great quality so that is a plus.
Greatest pan there is. Absolutely crushes All-Clad. Threw all of my All-Clad out.
Skillet is great, the handle I am not a fan of. It angles up too high for my liking. Seems like I am always bumping the handle regardless of where I turn it. Skillet cooks great, though!
Fabulous product. Works better than cast iron.
We love it! So easy to prepare food and then equally of ease to plate it right from the pan! Washes and dries quickly...it’s our go to for everything!
