I have purchased several de Buyer pans & now they are all I use to saute, fry, cook etc. We have had any number of non stick pans & or satinless steel pans but I much prefer the de Buyer iron pans over any I have ever used. The French have used these type pans for years & if anyone knows cooking, it is the French! The secret to success with these pans is properly curing them before using. They are a little heavier than other type pans but that is the nature of iron. It is a necessary evil but well worth the diiference from a lightweight non-stick pan.
