    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’ve recently purchased 3 carbon steel fry pans: DeBuyer, Lodge, and this World Cuisine. To my surprise, this one is the clear winner for everyday home use! The price is far cheaper and the weight is much lighter than the other two. Yes, this is thinner, but still strong enough to knock you out without getting a big dent. The side is high (about 2″) enough for various cooking (e.g., shnitzel/donkatsu) yet not as high as DeBuyer Country Cheff that can be too deep to slide in spatula in some cases. This black/blue steel pan was much easier to season compared to my DeBuyer (mainly due to the lower wall. So, low-side design DeBuyer pans may be easier to season).
    If you still use Teflon pans but are concerned about their potential health risk (http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/nervous-about-nonstick), I highly recommend this one!

    Compared to this one, DeBuyer Mineral B Element Country Cheff 9.4″ (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00462QP2K) is an elephant (in both positive and negative sense). The French pan looks beautiful. Pure iron and extremely thick construction with high wall (3+”). This may last even after the human race extincts. But this thing is dang heavy. A little lighter than my lodge 10″ cast iron pan on scale, but I don’t feel much difference. This one is also harder to season as I mentioned. I had to redo several times, yet the wall around the handle rivets is still half-done. Also, this expensive & beautiful pan doesn’t look that beautiful anymore after completely seasoned.
    Bottom line: This is the best option if you just want a beautiful pan for display. If you have to lift this pan often, you will need a lot of muscle on your forearms.
    Lodge factory-reasoned 12″ pan (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B005U93RYW) is lighter & cheaper than DeBuyer but heavier and more expensive than World Cuisine. Nevertheless, this one may not be a good choice for a regular kitchen. Lodge steel pans come in factory seasoning, which is rough & matte. While this tough looking pan would be perfect for a camping trip or a back-yard cookout, this pan looks rather ugly compared to the other two that will have slick glossy black surface. I’m also worried if the factory seasoned surface is any safer than Teflon non-stick surface because there was no info about the seasoning material I could find.

    This pan comes pre-seasoned (thus the color), however I’m not sure what kind of oil they used because it has a strong and synthetic smell to it. The product description says that it is of Italian origin, but the label on the pan itself states that it was made in China.
