Meet Carbon Steel. It’s a perfect hybrid of a cast iron skillet and a stainless steel frying pan. It has a cast iron’s heat retention, seasoning, and non-stick properties and stainless steel’s heat control, lightness and cooking speed. French foodies and professional chefs have been using carbon steel for centuries, and we're bringing it to US kitchens.
A carbon steel skillet is arguably the most popular type of pan in Europe and in professional kitchens around the world. When we decided to make our Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pan, we knew a trip to France was necessary, the country that put carbon steel pans on the map. We did our research and found a Carbon Steel factory that’s been making these pans for almost 300 years. The factory prides itself on its storied history, local resources, and craftsmanship.
