As part of our testing process, we routinely revisit past product recommendations to ensure they’re still accurate and to see how they compare to similar products. I pan-fried fish and then added some asparagus to the same pan, to let the fish cook through on low heat and cook the asparagus at the same time. Handling and keeping them on the diffusers is a bit awkward though, but I keep doing it pretty often for the evenness benefit, especially if I am pan frying fish for example on the 28 cm. Due to the issues with some pans noted by other reviewers, I immediately placed a straight edge on the bottom of the 12 5/8" and 14 1/8" pans when they arrived. I’m just an amateur home cook, but I’ve read a lot about seasoning carbon steel—and I have a carbon steel wok that’s maintained seasoning fairly well, plus several cast iron pans that are seasoned well—so I’d like to think I have a basic knowledge of how to season a pan.

The carbon steel pans are especially wonderful for searing fish due to their smooth surface and nonstick quality. Whether your goal is to fry a quick egg, sear protein for dinner or make an elegant brunch, this pan is adept at all of the above. To test the pan’s heat conductivity and retention, I filled the pan with half an inch of water and timed how long it took the water to come to a boil (212 degrees) over medium-high heat; then, I turned off the heat to time how long it took for the water to come to room temperature (75 degrees).It might look like any other pan, but don’t be fooled - it’s heavy and can be a bit of a struggle to maneuver around the kitchen. This is why I like the idea with the mini legs in Ilsa, but at the same time it makes it less stable. Crafted in France as all Matfer Bourgeat kitchen tools and accessories, this pan will ensure each meal prepared in your kitchen becomes a fine-dining experience.

They have all the benefits of cast iron —they’re cheap, can be used on any heat source, are great at searing, perfectly nonstick when properly seasoned — except they don’t retain heat quite as well. discard Contents, then briefly reheat frying pan with a little oil, remove from heat and wipe with paper towel. Though the brand’s recommended seasoning process was a bit tedious, I appreciated how specific it was—and most importantly, it was successful.

After a second seasoning, the entire base of the pan got a black hue that instantly made the pan look well-loved and full of character. In November 2018 Cook’s Illustrated updated their test, and still the Matfer-Bourgeat came out on top as a test kitchen favorite. The pan arrives with detailed instructions for seasoning, which you need to complete before you get to cooking.We do this to ensure that the wok heats up quickly when placed on the hob and cools down fast when the heat is removed, an essential requirement for stir-fry cooking. On the packaging of the Matfer Bourgeat black carbon steel pan, it’s recommended to season the pan by cooking some potato peels in a bunch of oil and salt, mixed 50/50.
