Description
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.

Just finished seasoning my Carbon Steel Made In frying pan and used it to make grilled cheese sandwiches. It was just like using a non-stick pan as far as the surface goes! But no chemicals to leach into my food. Beautiful pan. I actually got rid of two cheap aluminum non-stick pans and replaced them with this one. Good decision! Highly recommend it.

The first thing I noticed when opening the box was how well made this pan is…sturdy and heavy. I use a lot of enameled cast iron already, so this pan will fit in very nicely. So far, I’m happy with the cooking results, too.

Jim B.

Really nice, not quite as heavy as my cast iron, heats nicely and retains well, seasoned beautifully and I love the gently sloped sides which makes it perfect for omelets with little fat and stir fry.

I've never used such a great pan.

Chad P.

This pan makes me feel as if I am a bona fide chef.

These carbon steel pans are great. We've converted most of our stove-top cooking to our new 10" and 12" Made In skillets. They are easy to cook in, get evenly hot, and very easy to clean. They are also simple to maintain. So far, we're big fans of the pans!
