What is the difference between mineral steel and carbon steel?

pguidry | Feb 13, 2010 05:05 AM

I've been looking for 10" and 12" De Buyer carbon steel pans with no luck. I've seen mineral steel pans instead. Can anyone tell me the difference?

I want these to be my egg, pancake, taco meat, chicken, etc. type pans. I am getting rid of my non-stick.

Thanks for any info.

Paul

NOTE: I just found and ordered the Carbon Steel so it doesn't matter.
