Mauviel M'steel Round Carbon Steel Fry Pan : Fresh pan-seared scallops and hearty Denver omelettes are just a few of the delectable dishes easily prepared in the Mauviel M'steel Carbon Steel Fry Pan. Fully induction-ready and PFOA- and PTFE-free, the round carbon steel skillet quickly and evenly heats everything from your favorite reductions and sauteed zucchini to brandy-poached pears. Crafted in France by world-renowned Mauviel, the cookware's commercial-grade carbon steel construction withstands ultra-high temperatures, allowing longer preheating and superb searing. After seasoning, the French skillet acquires natural nonstick properties and is durable against metal utensils. As heavy-duty as cast iron but lighter to handle, the Mauviel M'steel carbon steel fry pan offers a triple-riveted steel handle for increased stability. The M'steel round carbon steel skillet is suited for all cooktops, including induction, professional gas ranges and campfires, and is oven- and broiler-safe. In 1830 Ernest Mauviel founded his Mauviel manufacturing company in Villedieu-les-Poeles, France's "city of copper." Mauviel is a 7th-generation family-owned business and its superior cookware is still manufactured in France and preferred by distinguished chefs, culinary professionals and home cooks throughout the world. Originally specializing in copper products, today Mauviel 1830 also produces carbon steel, stainless-steel and aluminum cookware with the company's same legendary design and performance. With Mauviel's more than 180 years of expert craftsmanship, you can trust the lasting quality of the M'steel carbon steel fry pan for your own kitchen.

Don't be a dork

These pans are fabulous to cook on. Food cooks quickly and retains flavors and juices when cooked at very high temps. They are high carbon steel which build up a dark, non-stick patina over time.
If you want a shiny pan that you use infrequenty then you should get a non-stick or stainless item. You won't be able to use steel tools with either of the latter, though, as they might scratch. The Dork brand seems nice.
