All de Buyer iron pans have a slightly convexly curved bottom to guarantee a great stability when they are used on powerful heating sources (especially on induction). This convex curve prevents pans from deforming and doesn’t spoil their cooking properties.
Induction hobs showing an exceptional heating performance, when using an iron pan, it is necessary to:
- cook at a medium temperature,
- avoid using the powerboost function,
- avoid over-heating your iron pan while it is empty.
These precautions are essential for pans from 26cm of diameter to avoid deformation.
Can I use my chestnuts pan with holes on a gas stove?
The chestnuts pan with holes is particularly suitable for a chimney fire and the irregularity of the flames that will "lick" and wrap the pan. Putting it on a gas stove with high constant intensity may expose it to a risk of deformation. We advise to use it at normal heat, to minimize this risk of deformation.
