Welcoming De Buyer to ChefTools.com

De Buyer Mineral B Element Round Frying Pan, 14.2-Inch
The De Buyer Mineral B Element 12" Fry Pan: old reliable.

There’s a scene in one episode of Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” where he’s working (his rump off) as a line cook in his old restaurant, Les Halles; after searing a steak or fish or some other piece of meat on top of the burner, he quite literally throws the pan under the broiler. Just tosses it, not at all caring whether it’ll break. The star of that scene was neither Bourdain nor the food, but the pan. The steel battered and dented like the hull of a battleship, blackened by years of frying, sautéing, braising, baking, etc., that pan will be there forever for Bourdain or whoever takes his place.

It’s exactly the type of pan we all need in our kitchen: old reliable

When I held a De Buyer Mineral B Element pan for the first time, I could feel in its heft, its thick construction, and its unbendable handle that it would last forever. 

ChefTools.com is extremely proud to welcome De Buyer as the latest addition to our Cookware Department. Handcrafted in France, these 100% natural iron mineral pans come pre-seasoned with organic beeswax, which helps promote the natural nonstick finish and prevents rusting. 

We’re starting off with De Buyyer’s line of Mineral B Element workhorse frying pans ranging in size from 8 to 14 inches. But there’s more: grill pans in 10 and 12-inch sizes, plus high-sided saucepans (called Country Chef Pans), 3 sizes of crepe pan, and a blinis pan. For all your De Buyer mandoline owners, we’re offering a variety of accessories for De Buyer’s La Mandoline Ultra, from julienne blades to extra-large pushers. And for those in need of the finest garnishing tools ever produced, we have the De Buyer Core Concept Universal Corer in 3 sizes. 

When you buy a De Buyer pan, it’s forever. Come to ChefTools.com and invest in one of these incredible pans – throw it under the broiler, expose it to ungodly temperatures, freeze it, and it lives on for you to pass down the next generation of home cooks. 

Enjoy this quick little De Buyer tutorial - from factory to stovetop, it shows how to properly season and use these excellent pans.
