i have a mineral b 10. i think it's fairly high end in the line? i have the 12 inch Lodge steel. i like both a lot.
The "Carbon Plus" and "Mineral B" are almost the same.
The Mineral B is their new line and they are gradually phasing out the "Carbon Plus" line.
Mineral B is the only line de Buyer approves for gas, electric, oven, and induction.
Yes. That is the one. Thicker and less prone to warping.
The products page you linked is outdated (even if it is the official de Buyer site).
Download the pdf catalog from that site to get all the info for each line.
All Mineral pans are now "Mineral B" pans. (Beeswax coating to prevent rust during shipping.)
You may have a hard time buying anything other than Mineral B pans unless you live in Paris.
I'm a Carbon Plus fan, but yes, the mineral line is nice
My favourite egg pan is my Force Bleu crêpe pan. It's used literally every day, in my house for everything from French Toast, to crêpes, to over easys.
We have the LeCreuset pans and I also use a vintage Wagner cast iron griddle for eggs. I have been increasing my cast iron pans over the last couple of years and my wife only has a few LeCreusets that are missing from her collection. While both are heavy they do not stick at all. I have been thinking about replacing a couple of teflon coated pans with debuyer or some thinner early 1900's CI. I would have to see the lodge carbon pans up close because their cast iron line is way too rough to season decently.
I was actually just reading the other day someone recommended getting a carbon pan unseasoned if possible or stripping it down and redoing it. Probably the best way to go.
