COOKWARE: Which material should I choose?


Copper heats evenly and fast, giving it the ability to cook delicate proteins like fish and seafood as well as sauces, caramels, chocolates, as copper loses heat just as fast, reducing the chances the sauce overcooks or breaks from exposure to the retained heat in the metal. It is also excellent for cooking pasta, meat, eggs, rice, etc. and is ideal for even heat distribution.

2 collections : Inocuivre, Prima Matera (induction-ready)

Carbon Steel

Perfect for searing, grilling, browning and sauteing. Our carbon steel pans are as slippery as a brand new nonstick, once seasoned, and produce a better sear without any synthetic coating. The original Mineral B line can go in the over for up to 10 min at 400°F to perfectly finish off your dish and the Mineral B Pro line can go in the oven indefinitely because of its cast stainless steel handle. The more you use it, the better it performs and the darker it becomes.

3 collections: Mineral B, Mineral B Bois, Mineral B PRO (oven-safe)


Blue Steel

Similar to Mineral B, our Blue Steel pans are thinner carbon steel pans blued with heat treatment to prevent oxidation and assist in seasoning. They are made with lighter iron and with gradual seasoning the pan will have naturally non-stick properties. Ideal for grilling.

2 collections: La Lyonnaise, Force Blue
