Care Instructions


  • Prepare your frying pan by cleaning with very hot water, then dry it thoroughly
  • Pour one centimeter of cooking oil into the pan, and wipe it around. Then heat it on the stove on a medium-high temperature for about 5 minutes
  • Throw away the oil and wipe your pan with paper towels
  • The more the pan is used, the better the performance; the darker it becomes the better it is for natural nonstick properties


  • Heat a small amount of oil or fat in the frying pan, and once the pan is good and hot, seal the food about 45 seconds on each side before reducing the heat to complete cooking
  • Do not leave the meals in the pan after cooking, as the residual heat will carry on cooking your food

Cleaning after use:

  • Wash the frying pan with very hot water and a sponge, and wipe dry
  • From time to time, purify the pan by heating up cooking salt over a high heat for about 1.5 minutes, then wipe with a kitchen paper. The salt helps to suppress the residues and the odours from previous cookings
  • To store, wipe oil over the surface with a paper towel and put away in a dry place
  • Do not leave your pan to soak. If food sticks to the pan, use a green sponge to scrub it off, and re-season the area
  • Never put the pan in a dishwasher. The pan may rust if these conditions are not respected. Just scrub the pan with a hard brush to remove the rust, and season from scratch

Marvelous pan!

Review by Gretchen V. on 28 June 2013, 5 days after purchase

Having heard all manner of horror stories regarding the proper way to season carbon steel pans, I was somewhat apprehensive about this purchase. I needn't have worried! A hot wash to remove the inevitable manufacturing crud that sticks to the beeswax - while leaving a layer of wax behind - is all that is needed before seasoning. Then a good wipe of grape seed oil all over the inside of the pan bef Read more

It's like a vegetable patch

The more you tend it, and kind of neglect it at the same time - the better it gets. I love it so much I also got the 32cm. They make beautiful frittatas, start on stove top and finish under the grill in the oven.

Don't scrub it with soap. Directly after use just add boiling water and scrub with a dish brush only. Dry it, give a super thin layer of flax seed oil - rub most of it dry Read more

Can you really love a pan?!?!?!

Review by Heleen D. on 28 August 2014, 9 days after purchase

Verified Owner

Yes you can!!! I was looking for a decent pan, and all the reviews convinced me. I'm very impressed with my pan. It is a good size and the higher sides means you can get quite a bit in there. I wash it myself, only with hot water and a sponge. No sunlight liquid.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys cooking. And if you can lift it high enough it can double up as a damn good self defe Read more

The De Buyer pan is a higher grade tool perfect for the amateur cook who dreams of whipping up dishes like a pro.
The initial seasoning process involves lots of heat, oil and blackening, but once burnt to a crisp it becomes an absolute joy to use. It takes a bit of getting used to the idea that this isn't a tool you want to be bringing near any form of soapy water, but once that mental shif Read more

Bit of effort, but soooo worth it

It is a bit of effort to season the pan and to keep it in good nick, but it is so worth it. It sealed the steak beautifully, browning but still MR just the way we like it :)

I would recommend this product to a friend.
