I agree. I want to get into iron pans very much but I am baulking at the $250 + price tag. Ironic when I spend way more than that on any given knife.
Especially when I know i will use the pan far more that any one knife I own.
I'm going to start off with a DeBuyer and see if a hole opens up in front of me later ;)
We have a lot of cast iron we have collected over the years and it is great. But, we decided to try carbon steel for the lighter advantage and faster heat control. We travel past the Lodge factory a couple times a year so it only made sense our first would be a Lodge Carbon Steel pan. We absolutely loved it, then we bought a Debuyer. Oh my! Makes me feel that J-knife entry all over again, then the J-nat stone entry, now pans! What next? The ones here are stunning and yeah, I'm balking at the price, but maybe .................
Do you like the Debuyer better than the lodge? I am just started looking around so Was interested in your thoughts.

They cook really close, funny thing is, I like the Debuyer better, my wife likes the Lodge. The Debuyer has a much nicer finish overall.

Mineral B, is a little weird to season but once it is, it's real nice

Mr. I need to reduce my inventory (that's me) loves these: https://blanccreatives.com/allitems
Those are lovely. Look remarkably similar in construction and aesthetic to Bluskillet - a husband/wife team in Ballard in Seattle that have been making continuously sold-out waiting-list cookery like this for some years now. I've tried a few times to get one but always strike out. They're remarkable.

I had trouble seasoning big my matfer. Once I started making pancakes with a little spray canola oil the seasoning stuck.

Those are fantastic looking. I have to control myself. Otherwise I can foresee a “skillets to go” in my future. :)

No doubt.There is just something about having something with personality built into it by someone's skillful hands.

Might have to try that on this one.I usually season with peanut oil like I did my woks and have also tried Avacado oil,flaxseed oil,olive oil and canola.Canola and peanut oil,I've had the most luck with.VERY,VERY THIN coats is what works,anything more is gummy.

Word is they perform every bit as good as or better than they look as well. :) Hope to win a lottery one of these times, though most months I just forget entirely or don't have the funds.

I cook on stainless these days - settled into as a favorite. I've two cast irons remaining, and two nice enameled dutch oven pieces, but everything else is old Faberware or Revere Ware I've inherited or picked up over the years. It has to be something like the type of work from the two ironworks in this thread to tempt me otherwise anymore, for a huge net gain. :)

Well I mostly just lurk here, BUT I bought a Blanc Creatives 11 inch skillet a while back and love it! My wife and I have cast iron, enameled cast iron, stainless, and carbon steel pans. I bought this because we wanted something that worked great and was hand crafted like our knives. This fits the bill and is beautifully done. I look forward to getting additional pieces eventually. The Blanc Creatives skillet is out on the stovetop and is our "go to" skillet.
