About this deal

Be aware that because the handle is made from cast iron and welded I place it can get very hot quite fast.

If you’re used to cooking with primarily light non-stick pans, it can take a bit of time to get familiar with the Matfer Bourgeat carbon steel pans. Whether your goal is to fry a quick egg, sear protein for dinner or make an elegant brunch, this pan is adept at all of the above. I fried some eggs, which wanted to stick a lot more than last time but not too badly, and seared some steak, which turned out with a great crust. I think the new Matfer carbon steel pan is a definite upgrade design wise to the old design, but let’s see how well it performs. I eventually decided to go for the Matfer Bourgeat pans based on the many good reviews I have read and the fact that they had a great range of sizes (and equally important the depth of their pans was just right, not too deep and not too shallow).I then tested the pan’s nonstick capabilities by frying eggs, which didn’t stick one bit—they slid right out of the pan without the need for any additional utensils. Finally, on my new induction cooktop, I can now make passable pancakes on my cast irons without the adapters though, so that’s the end of me using them. They can be heated sufficiently to create the Maillard reaction cherished by all cooks, thus ensuring good colouring of ingredients without overcooking them. Experience exceptional performance with every cooking task by preparing meals with the Matfer Bourgeat Black Carbon Steel Frying Pan! Now on the large burner, the coldest area for pans of this size is in the middle of the pan, inside the inner “donut”.

I was concerned that perhaps food would stick to the steel pan but have no worries in that department.Having used plenty of carbon steel pans in professional kitchens, my criteria for a truly exceptional pan were high. It’s also possible for most people to lift the pans that are 30 cm (12 inches) and under, one handed and toss foods around. When I got the Matfer Bourgeat Black Carbon Steel Fry Pan for testing, I set up various experiments from simply frying an egg to making cornbread.

This required essentially sautéing a strange mix of potato peels, salt, and oil for 15 minutes, throwing it out, and starting again.

Be sure to save the sticker glued onto the pan as that contains the manufacturer's instructions for seasoning. They offer a complete range of professional catering equipment and utensils in a variety of metals, shapes and sizes. They are good quality solid steel pans and seem to distribute the heat evenly across the surface resulting in excellent cooking results. In November 2018 Cook’s Illustrated updated their test, and still the Matfer-Bourgeat came out on top as a test kitchen favorite.
