Carbon vs. Stainless Steel Fry Pans

Right on! :)

Also, what are crepe pans for other than crepes?

Carbon vs. Stainless Steel Fry Pans

What about if I have a stainless sauté pan? Wouldn't that do all of those things that stainless excels at? Why would I want a stainless fry pan over a stainless sauté pan?

(Also, thanks for all of your responses! :))

Carbon vs. Stainless Steel Fry Pans

I feel guilty for making this post because I worry I should be able to figure out the answer myself through searches, but I can't.

I'm about to pull the trigger on two carbon steel fry pans (deBuyer Mineral B), but I have this nagging need to understand what I'm missing by choosing carbon steel over stainless for fry pans. Carbon steel seems like such a superior choice to me, why would someone chose stainless? Is it only the acid/reactive issues with carbon steel?

Thank you!
