De Buyer has long been designing and manufacturing cooking utensils in a variety of materials, such as copper, stainless steel, non-stick and carbon steel, to get the best cooking results for each recipe.
Carbon steel utensils have always been a part of the French culinary tradition and are a symbol of our grandmothers’ cooking. Unbeatable when it comes to searing, grilling and browning, They are an essential ingredient of the Maillard reaction a browning reaction that reduces sugars on the surface, seals in flavors and keepsthe inside tender and juicy.
A durable material, carbon steel is naturally non-stick: the more you use it, the better it gets. This is why carbon steel utensils have been passed along from generation to generation.
