I just purchased a De Buyer Mineral B 12" skillet and I'm afraid now it to going to be too heavy due to my partial disability mentioned above. Today just happens to be a bad day for hand pain so I may be overly worried as I seldom have more than minimal pain. I still need to purchase an 8" and a 10" for which I've been looking at DeBuyer Mineral B, World Cuisine, Mauviel, Matfer, and Vollrath. I have a lodge cast iron 12" pan and I wouldn't be able to use it today. I have a couple Tramontina "commercial grade" non-stick pans, but I want to get rid of them for other health reasons. I don't' want anything that is too light. But I'm concerned I may have to return the De Buyer after reading some comments I believe were from boar_d_laze regarding the heft. Will have De Buyer Mineral B 12 be as heavy as the Lodge CI 12" I already have? Do you all have any recommendations or helpful comments? I would want to use them mainly for proteins and I have some nice stainless steel I use for acidic foods. Do you all know the place online where I can find these pans for the best price with good customer service - or is that asking too much? Please forgive any typos as I'm using a voice recognition program due to the pain in my hand today.
