carbon steel fry pan - alternatives to DeBuyer Mineral B?

fobos8 | May 2, 2014 01:13 PM

Hi there

I was very excited recently to recieve a 12" DeBuyer mineral B fry pan. My excitement quickly disapeared when I took it out the bag and saw how small the cooking surface is - it's far too small for me. Not only that my wife said she'd never use it cos its too heavy. Looks like its going back!

Are there any alternative carbon steel pan where the cooking surface does reduce so drastically?

I guess the reason the Mineral B is so heavy is that it is 1/8" thick. Are there alternatives that are just as good and not as thick?

Thanks in advance, Andrew
