Makes cooking and turning eggs so easy.
Gloria
The material that this pan is made of is great quality, and it is very well constructed and sturdy, you do have to season it before using it,though.
Arthemisa
The blue steel pan acts much like cast iron in that it needs to be seasoned before use and kept lightly oiled.

I recently took it into my head to start making crêpes and didn't have the proper pan (or for that matter, anything even close). I became familiar with the existence of this pan through the Williams-Sonoma catalog and, based on its glowing reviews, decided to see if I could pick it up for less. This pan doesn't have a high list regardless but at the time of this writing, Amazon's price is the lowest anywhere, even without the free shipping. :)

This is a quality pan made of what's known as "blue steel"; according to Wikipedia, "bluing" is a manufacturer's process that partially protects carbon steel against potential rust. In order for this pan to be safely seasoned and used, the coating on the pan's cooking surface (which, as I understand it, is independent of the bluing process) must be removed. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IGNORING DE BUYER'S INSTRUCTIONS TO BOIL POTATO PEELS IN THE PAN PRIOR TO SEASONING IT WITH OIL. I mean it. When you see the sludge that comes off the surface of the pan and the color of those peelings, you'll be tempted to repeat that particular step. Go for it--I did (de Buyer has a video of the procedure on YouTube). Dispose of the peelings, rinse the pan THOROUGHLY with very hot water, and wipe it HARD with paper towels to remove as much sludge and bluing as possible. Heat oil (I used rice bran--very high smoke point and not too expensive) in the pan and keep it hot but not smoking for about five minutes, pour it out, and AGAIN wipe thoroughly with paper towels until the cooking surface no longer yields blue (don't worry about the underside unless you're planning to do some very funky frying) and rubbing in the oil will have given you a beautiful, glassy cooking surface. Your pan is on its way to being well-seasoned!

Just used this pan for the first time, and every crepe came out perfectly. The instructions said to brown some vegetable peelings in it before using it the first time, then clean with hot water and NO soap. I did this, and if anything the pan outperformed non-stick ones I'm used to. By the way, the secret to making great crepes is to let the batter rest for an hour or more before cooking. A good way to dry non-stainless cookware like this is to put it back on the burner for a short time after washing. Highly recommended.

The last crepe pan I bought before this one was the Calphalon Commercial nonstick crepe pan. A great pan but it stopped being nonstick after only 1 1/2 years. With all the controversy surrounding nonstick coatings I decided to go old fashioned and buy the classic blue steel crepe pan by De Buyer. Now after quite a few crepe batches I can say that this is the best type of crepe pan and it'll probably last you a lifetime. It heats up really well and cooks crepes at a medium heat setting on my ceramic cooktop. It should be treated like cast iron but is much lighter and has a really smooth surface (unlike my cast iron round griddle) which is ideal for delicate crepes. It does need to be seasoned and its nonstickability improves after each use. Some caveats I discovered: follow the manufacturer's directions for seasoning; use only plastic or wood utensils (it can actually take metal, but metal can actually scratch your seasoning so you'll have reseason); never use soap or put in the dishwasher; and never scour the pan with anything stronger than the pads used for nonstick coatings. After cooking, I just rinse in hot water wiping with a sponge or a dobie pad, dry, heat on the stove on medium low heat, add a little oil, then wipe the pan with a paper towel and let it cool before putting the pan away. The clean-up is only one extra step but the pan is worth it. Don't worry if it gets dark; it's just part of its patina and indicates the pan is developing its nonstick surface. I find that it does a superior job cooking crepes, pancakes, naan, eggs, etc. or for heating up tortillas. Its temperature response is better than the Calphalon and the price is right too!
BTW, only buy De Buyer. I bought a cheaper blue steel pan that was made in China and it warped when it was heated. De Buyer's been manufacturing these since 1830 in France; I think they have the best ones on the market.

This is a great, authentic crepe pan. Be sure to season it exactly how the directions describe, and not to use dish soap to wash it (water on a wet cloth or paper towel is fine). It helps to get a crepe spatula to turn crepes when cooking with this pan, but you do not need a batter spreader. I recommend "Crepes" by Lou Siebert Pappas for her 3 basic crepe recipes and crepe making techniques, but note that the rest of the recipes in this book are very elaborate.

This pan is exactly as I hoped it would be. After the first few crepes (hadn't made them in decades and needed to get a rhythm going), it was a breeze. Has a good feel to it...substantial but not heavy. Seemed weird to first fry potato peels in the pan, but I did it and the pan is non-stick now and cleans up beautifully. (Don't be alarmed if the surface of the pan looks like it's getting ruined with the potato peels. A good soaking in plain water and a soft dish brush will take care of that.)

Well I am really tired of buying non-stick pans only to throw them out later on. Not to mention all that landfill waste is bad for the environment.
So I decided to buy this pan for my eggy endeavours. Once you get it seasoned properly nothing sticks to this pan and it is a cinch to clean.
It did take me several rounds of seasoning the pan though. I ended up putting enough canola oil to coat (making sure there is enough oil to coat the middle. It can
run to the sides. Then again you dont want to use too much oil...) and the trick is to keep it smoking (not burning, just lightly smoking) for a bit.
Anyhow, that worked for me, and now I can make crepes and omelettes with ease! This pan also gives omelettes wonderful texture/taste. <3
