The pix I've seen of the Matfer pan shows the handle as being spot-welded on as opposed to the De Buyer which is riveted. That accurate?

I'll bet the Matfer is really nice. No experience but I'm sure it's excellent.

My deBuyer pans are 6-7 years old and in everyday use. As in EVERYDAY. Even used at Rubithon 2 weeks ago! Great track record for my uses.

Anyway, nice to have all these choices. Steel pans are the best and not pretentious or expensive. What else can you buy for $50 and use everyday for the rest of your life?

That is correct. I actually thought I was buying a deBuyer (the amazon link steered me wrong before I realized it - twice in a week!). Anyway, for all intents and purposes it's identical.

I have one of those and, me too, sadly, after a couple of French Toast excursions, only use it for warming large Tortillas...

I was pretty excited to find that steel griddle. It was labelled a castie, so I jumped at it for $12, then later looked at it's welded wire handles. Figured, "whatever, it's sweet and better than no griddle". Maybe it's high carbon, maybe it's just steel but it seems to have taken the flax seasoning, so I'll be happy to use it and see how it performs. 👍
