Benefits of Carbon Steel Cookware

Carbon steel pans are most similar to cast iron pans, both of which develop a natural nonstick surface. However, carbon steel cookware tends to be slightly lighter in weight and smoother on the surface. Carbon steel heats up quickly and transfers heat well, so it’s a great choice for browning and searing. The solid metal construction also makes the pots and pans particularly versatile since they can be used on the stovetop, in the oven or even under the broiler. That allows you keep your food in a single pan even when it’s being moved from one location to the next during the cooking process.
