Found 30th Mar 2014
One of the best pans available and with time and seasoning, will become more slippery than a Teflon and last a lifetime.

I've been using this range for a few years now and kept an eye on the 28cm pan to see if/when I could get it for less than £35. Today, an email from CamelCamelCamel meant that my 'wish' came true.

I've been after something like this for a while, I don't really want to buy non-stick as it always ends up peeling off. How do you season it?

It's as simple as heating some oil.

Each pan comes with instructions, and there's a 'how-to' video on the De Buyer website: debuyer.com/vid…=44

Thank you, I've stuck it into flubit so should get it around 11% cheaper too.

No problem. I hope you enjoy your new pan

quite surprised this is cold..these kind of pans are much better than the commercialised ones.

I have the 32cm version of this pan. Seasoning takes some getting right IME. A combination of oils is meant to be best. Flaxseed oil is one to use and then something different like an animal fat. Remove the wax coating and then coat in the finest coat of oil that you can and then bake it in the oven. Then repeat with a different oil. This needs to be done as many times as possible slowly building up the seasoning and none stick coating.

Keep the pan oiled!

Getting some form of cover is a good idea. I got a plastic bucket with a lid and used the lid on the pan when it is unused. It keeps the dust out of it.

I'm not sure of the price but some heat added because this site is so full of geeks who have probably never seen a real frying pan and because it's not tech will vote cold.

Why cold! I love these, all the TV chefs seem to use something similar. Anyway as an avid chef I just bought two.

just order on flubit for £23.64, price is now £39.86 on amazon...so have to see if flubit would cancel the order.

They did to me last time saying no stock. I get the lesson that if I really must have the item, I would not trust flubit at all, go buy from amazon without delay.

anyway many thanks to OP

Anybody know the difference between the Carbon Plus and Mineral B Element ranges? I'm wondering if it's nothing more than the beeswax coating.
