The de Buyer Difference?

JuniorBalloon | Oct 28, 2011 08:22 AM

I see that de Buyer has two 12 inch carbon pans. One is called the de Buyer Mineral Pan, the other is DeBuyer Mineral B Element Iron Frypan.

Mineral B

Mineral Pan

I have a 10 inch Mineral Pan and love it. I sometimes need a slightly bigger pan and either of these would fit the bill, but what is the real difference between them? I like the slightly bigger Mineral B and it's cheaper, but will it perform like the Mineral Pan? Any reason not to go with Mineral B?
