This round country pan from De Buyer is 100% natural and 99% iron with an organic bee wax finish. De Buyer discovered that bee wax is an excellent option to protect their pans against oxidation. Bee wax also helps in the seasoning process and improves the non-stock quality. The mineral B element chef's pan is PTFE and PFOA free and with no chemicals added. You will be impressed with the quality of this pan as it allows for high heat cooking, making it perfect for sealing, browning, and grilling. Another bonus of this amazing country pan is the fact that the more the pan is used, the better the natural non-stick properties become (material becomes darker). The round country pan is ideal for all hotplates (including induction), has a diameter of 32cm / 12.6", and is proudly made in France.
