Made in France for over 180 years, the De Buyer range offers you outstanding professional quality designed for home use. The Mineral range of pans has no added chemicals, is coating –free and is made using an environmentally friendly manufacturing process. It is also totally recyclable at the end of its life (which will be a very, very long time!). These pans are suitable to use at high temperatures, which seals the food very quickly, preserving the vitamins and minerals, and thereby improving the flavour too. The more you use it the better it cooks; the blacker it gets, the less it sticks!
