I've been looking at the debuyer pans and decided to get a set of these. I was VERY pleased with the help I recited from customer service as I needed to correct my order after it was placed which was no problem. I received the pans the next day. The quality is excellent and pans are truly commercial quality. They are heavy and just slightly lighter than comparably sized cast iron. The heat retention and even cooking is amazing.
I used the following method to season which worked really well with eggs sliding out of the pan: use flaxseed oil and just a few drops. I rubbed all over surface with my fingers and then wiped with a paper towel.
I heated on high until it smoked and turned brown. The finish is smooth, slick and not gummy. Highly recommend these pans and this vendor.

Great pan for searing, omelette, etc. seasons quickly for a non stick surface. Omelette slide right on to the plate.

I owned a restaurant and these things were standard issue for about $10 thirty years ago. I have a commercial kitchen now at home. I threw out all the teflon and replaced them with this old school non-stick for health reasons. Love all the pans (we bought 6) and found order, shipping, and customer service to be the BEST...far exceeding my expectations. I would DEFINITELY recommend placing your business here @ Kerekes. The deBuyer pans were a bit more than the johnson / paderno / etc. brands, but these just "feel right" and for personal use, we buy the best! This is a good company doing good work!
