De Buyer Blue Steel on Burner?
I'm using some of the fantastic carbon steel pans from de buyer. Mostly I've so fare are the mineral or mineral B ones. Now I've seen on some websites (amazon too in some cases) that they explicitly say that the "blue steel" ones are to be used "only" with induction. But on the website of de buyer they explicitly show that they could be used with burners too. Is this true? Any idea anyone why the blue induction should be used only on induction? I would guess the website of de buyer should be the reference in this case. I would appreciate any insight into this.
"they explicitly say that the "blue steel" ones are to be used "only" with induction"
Really? Can you show us those websites?
I have a blue steel pan, and so do many people. I have only used it on burner/stovetop.
This is my DeBuyer blue steel pan post:
here is an example but there are others:

Ok, I wasn't sure which pan we were talking about. This country frying pan can be used on other heat sources. I am sure of this. If anything, the DeBuyer official website does not recommend Force Blue cookware to be used with induction -- so if anything, it is the opposite:
Chem - the de Buyer website show all of their blue steel lines as being electric, gas, induction capable except La Lyonnaise - no mention of induction. Since the Lyonnaisse line is thin - typically one ml, I guess they worry that it may warp at high heat on induction.
Quote from the site -Catalog>Steel>La Lyonnaise:
"The lightweight blue steel plate is suitable for low-power heat sources."
I have an 8 inch blue steel crepe pan that I have used on an electric stove with a glass covered ceramic cook top. We have been using it for years now and it works beautifully. We use it for fried and scrambled eggs, crepes and pancakes and much more. Love it. Asking for a larger one for Xmas!
