I decided to get the 14" too as my Wolf will be able to handle it. Yes these babies cook.
you're referring to the deBuyer pans, right? if so, i have to get used to mine... it takes a LOT of heat to get them hot; then, after getting to temp, they STAY hot for a LONG, LONG time.
i need to cook with them more often to get the feel for them.
