One day, my husband and I took a close look at our fry pans and realized we needed a more healthy alternative. Non-stick surfaces do not last and our fry pans were showing their age and wear. Whatever that was that was peeling off was being infused into our food under high heat. We did our research and decided to purchase the 3-Peice deBuyer Mineral Fry Pans. They are heavy. They are 99% iron. If iron is being infused into our food under high heat that is OK with us. This decision to use healthier fry pans has a bonus. The food cooked in these pans tastes wonderful!
