Do I need Carbon steel pans ?

toyopl | Feb 14, 2013 06:42 PM

As I started seasoning my Debuyer mineral pans I started thinking, what do I actually need them for ?
I have a set of Tramontina stainless steel pans and I have a set of DeBuyer non stick pans.
Thinking to myself do I need the extra pans and what would I use them for, what kind of cooking, I like to cook everything from European to Mexican and Asian. Right now I'm hooked on Indian food, but last month I was hooked on pastas :)
I never used cast iron or carbon steel pans before, so not sure what they have to offer.
It's just me and my wife in a little Townhouse, and before I grab the other 12'' Debuyer to season I would like some input.
