How is Demeyere pronounced

What is the correct way to say Demeyere?

I've heard dem-eye-ra, demee-air, de-mee-"A"... etc. How is this supposed to be pronounced?

Just looking at the word I said demay-air. It looks French. Can't say that I'm correct though.

Yes, this is the cookware forum :) It's a Belgian company making pots, pans, etc. Considered some of the best.

Sorry, I didn't look at the forum. My bad. I haven't heard of it but if it is Beldian it is probably much like Jabbur guessed.

Demeyere is indeed a Belgian company specialized in cookware.
Their headquarters are in Herentals, which is situated in the north of Belgium, the Flemish part (Flemish is roughly the same as Dutch; the differences comparable with for example the differences between American and British English).

The pronounciation of 'Demeyere' is difficult, as the "ij" ("y") sound is difficult to translate into English phonetic symbols.

My best attempt to write Demeyere phonetically:

[d ' maɪ r ]
