Carbon vs. Stainless Steel Fry Pans

Brushy | Mar 4, 2013 11:22 AM

I feel guilty for making this post because I worry I should be able to figure out the answer myself through searches, but I can't.

I'm about to pull the trigger on two carbon steel fry pans (deBuyer Mineral B), but I have this nagging need to understand what I'm missing by choosing carbon steel over stainless for fry pans. Carbon steel seems like such a superior choice to me, why would someone chose stainless? Is it only the acid/reactive issues with carbon steel?

Thank you!
