deBuyer excellent pan...really takes the heat and gets meat browned. must be seasoned, the more you use it the darker it gets...good ballance to handle, goes right in the oven...excellent and not pricey. If you deglaze with wine make sure the pan is well used/seasoned. Yes I have 3.

I've had two of those -- 8-inch -- for years. My mom gave them to me. Couldn't live without them

I have no idea what a good price for them is, tho, as I haven't seen them in stores for a long \time.

yes the 3 sizes for $99 is a good price about a $25 savings off individual prices.

Robo410, can you give me some advice too? I suffer from arthritis. I read all the cast iron threads and posts, but without any hope of ever owning a piece simply because of the weight. Are these De Buyer pans heavy too?

I don't know these pans but these are not the cast iron pans. These are like saute pans.

1st observation: these pans are HEAVY.
2nd observation: once hot, they get things cooked!!

as i use them, i notice they're getting a bit darker with every use.
