    Maybe I'll give it a try and it'll be flat enough to get good use out of. Thanks for the feedback Richard Chrz

    Heck, at times, I put mine directly on Wood embers or coals,

    As jfmorris indicated. I have a lodge 15-inch carbon steel Paella pan. I LOVE it! I abuse the heck out of it, and it just keeps being a great pan.

    I really think that once you get used to cooking on CS you will be pleased. For me it is my go to pan.

    Yeah I see Lodge has a carbon steel paella in a 15" on Amazon. Price is right, too, like I said, just a little leery now. I'll have to think on it.

    DogFaced PonySoldier I see Richard Chrz using a Lodge paella pan, which I believe is carbon steel, a LOT, on the grill. He seems to love it. And Lodge stuff is usually pretty readily available. Have you looked at that one? Maybe Richard can comment on how flat it is, or if he has tried it with induction.

    I think the problem with the deBUyer was they canceled the one without the handles? Can't seem to find it anywhere.... Lodge has a 15" with short handles paella - but I'm skeptical of the quality after being 'burned' once.

    Yes, it's mainly because I want to try out carbon steel. It'll be used for cooking LARGE meals that are stewed, braised, in and out of the oven, smoker, etc. Another reason for the lack of a handle, it takes up less room in the smoker, in the cabinet, etc. Searing large roasts before slow-cooking or searing large amounts of meat I don't want to go outside and fire up the griddle for, etc.

    So what are the uses for this pan? Is it just to have something carbon steel to use in your kitchen? I've made it a lot of years using non-stick, stainless and cast iron skillets, and the only carbon steel I have right now is my 14" flat bottomed wok (from The Wok Shop).

    I recommend the Debuyer. They are not unreasonably priced. I don't have a induction burner so can't speak to that. They have some pans without handles.

    I've got a refund in my account, I'm just hesitant to pull the trigger on anything else. With induction, things heat quickly, unless you spend the time slowly amping up the setting. I'm just not sure I'm really patient enough to do that.

    I was pretty disappointed in the whole experience, so I'm in a holding pattern now just trying to figure out what to do. I found the de Buyer version on Amazon, but it's got a long handle - if I'm going with a BIG skillet, I don't think I want the super long handle, too.


    The Matfer version linked above looked like a decent option, but it has 7% 1-star reviews, a number of which complained of warping, so that made me hesitant. 7% 1-star is a bit higher than I like.

    I will say, I am willing to add in some cash to get something really good. Not going to spend $200, but... $100-130 or so is prolly doable.
