Pros: inexpensive, cooks well, heats evenly
Cons: reactive surface
Tuesday Morning had some of these pans in stock at a good price so I picked one up. It's my first carbon steel pan.
I think this is a phase out of old packaging and size as the package didn't include induction compatibility even though it is. Newer packaging does list induction compatibility. And they seem to have moved to a smaller version at 9.5 inches rather than 10.2 which this one is.
I cleaned it, oiled it and put it on the burner to season. It took to seasoning readily and has proven quite low stick while giving good sear and fond. Released eggs in an omelet form pretty well. I want to develop more patina before I try scrambled eggs in it.
Great buy if you can find one at a Tuesday Morning near you.
