I’m new here, and English is not my primary language. So I apologize in advance for any bad grammar and wrong spelling. This is my first post.
So… I have this De Buyer mineral B 28 cm pan I haven’t used in a long time. For some reason I got the impression that induction will warp stamped carbon pans. So since we got a induction cooktop at home I haven’t used it.
Normally I use a wariety of skepshult cast iron pans, a demeyere Proline and some scanpan and rösle non stick pans for delicate stuff. But I often miss the old carbon pan.
So my question is. Can I use the he mineral B on induction without warping it. Ofcourse with common sence like not overheating it dry, and heating it in steps.
Velkommen! It will be fine - I use a 32cm mineral b on induction all the time and it has not warped. The only thing you need to watch out for is not preheating it on too high a power level - keep it on medium-low and go slowly. Once it’s hot you can crank it higher for a sear if needed.
I bought a couple Mineral B pans (the pro version with the stainless handle) in 9.5" and 11" a few months ago with the intention of using it with a portable induction unit that I use in lieu of my conventional electric stove. So far, no warping, and I’m pretty pleased with their performance especially with searing and frying eggs.
And I do often heat it up without anything in it until it starts smoking a little bit, on medium /medium high heat though - 5/10 power on my Duxtop induction unit.
