de Buyer or Scanpan - moved from Greater Seattle board

My 10" and 12" non-stick skillets need replacing. I purchased the Scanpan Professional line at Sur La Table the other night for the great deal they had on 2 pans, the fact the pans are made in Denmark, and it sounds like they will last a couple decades. I then did some more research and found the deBuyer line which is carbon steele. It sounds like they have great non-stick qualities (once seasoned), are made in France, and are by far less expensive. Are they as great as they sound or should I stick with my Scanpan? I also wonder about their weight. The Scanpan didn't seem heavy which I liked as well. My other cookware is AC and LC (dutch ovens). Not sold on the AC non-stick as I feel it will break down sooner than the Scanpan or deBuyer. Would appreciate any knowledge/opinion between the two.
