Question about Matfer & de Buyer Carbon Steel

rp17 | Nov 14, 202108:53 AM     19

Most old posts I've found pretty much either recommend Matfer if you like rivetless, or Mineral B for high heat because of its thickness and weight. I found a video review (Uncle Scott's Kitchen) that said something similar: Mineral B if you don't mind a heavy pan, Matfer if you want more of a medium weight. From each company website, it looks to me like they're the same though: 3mm and similar weight for an 11" - 12" fry pan. Am I missing something? Thickness being equal, is one really "better"? I'm sure it really comes down to personal preference, but not being able to see and handle them in person first makes it difficult to choose. I'll probably be getting two pans: a large fry pan for searing, and something smaller for eggs.
