Frying pan (carbon steel)

De Buyer

Established 1830

Founded in 1830 by five artisans from Faymont, and acquired in 1867 by the De Buyer family, De Buyer is a French cookware manufacturer for professional and serious gourmet consumers. The iconic De Buyer frying pan is made of carbon steel and features a Lyonnaise shape: a high, flared and rounded side, so the food can slide easily from the pan to the dish or plate.

The extra-strong steel of this pan is suitable for intense sources of heat, including induction. With use, the frying pan darkens and develops a naturally non-stick surface. The more you use it, the better it cooks. The blacker it gets, the lesser it sticks. The most recent pans have an organic beeswax finish for a naturally stick-resistant surface and to protect the pan against oxidation.
