Our Carbon Steel sauté pans, like our Mineral B Country Fry Pan are considered to be the most natural, safe, and environmentally friendly cooking material you can buy. This pan is our go-to for everyday steaming and sautéing. For stir-frying, the MINERAL B Wok is perfectly suited for tossing and stir-frying, a must-have for Asian dishes. Our Mineral B Collection is made from 99% iron and 1% carbon, making it lighter than cast iron, more heat conductive than stainless steel, and naturally non-stick after seasoning. They’re coated with natural beeswax to help prevent oxidation which can help in the seasoning process. These pans only get better the more you use them.
This material ranks favorably among professional chefs-and you don’t have to take our word for it. As Nancy Pollard, the trustworthy maven of high-quality kitchen tools said about our carbon steel, it’s “cookware to inherit”. She elaborates in her blog:
“While there is no one vessel that ‘does it all’ perfectly, there are manufacturers of good cookware that will last generations and not become part of a landfill. My mantra has been, if it is good enough for a serious restaurant kitchen, then it needs to be in mine. De Buyer’s carbon steel is one of them.”
