Carbon Steel Cookware Manufacturer

A carbon steel cookware is a kitchen appliance between an iron pan and a steel pan, with the heat transfer performance of an iron pan and the durability of a steel pan. Using a carbon steel pan can cook food better.

Made from a mixture of carbon and iron, Carbon Steel Pans are similar to cast iron, but are thinner, lighter, and more responsive to temperature changes. Like cast iron, most Carbon Steel Pans must be seasoned to fully exploit their natural nonstick abilities (although some are sold pre-seasoned, it’s worth noting that carbon steel, like cast iron, will never achieve Teflon-level nonstick properties either way). Carbon Steel pans can also be used on gas, electric, or induction stovetops (or even over an open flame if you prefer).

Another big appeal of carbon steel frying pans is their durability; these pans can withstand super-high temperatures for hours, and can seamlessly transfer from the oven to the stovetop. The only thing a carbon steel pan can’t do is handle acidic sauces for extended periods of time, as this will corrode the seasoning (as with cast iron pans).

Carbon Steel Cookware FAQ

Carbon steel cookware is made from an alloy of iron and a small percentage of carbon, which makes it exceptionally durable and allows for very high heat conduction. This type of cookware includes frying pans, woks, and crepe pans, and is favored for its ability to heat up quickly and evenly.

Both carbon steel and cast iron are known for their durability and excellent heat retention. However, carbon steel is typically lighter and heats up faster than cast iron. While both require seasoning to achieve a non-stick surface, carbon steel can develop a smooth, natural non-stick surface quicker due to its smoother, thinner nature.

Seasoning carbon steel involves coating it with oil and heating it to create a natural non-stick layer. Wash and dry your cookware, apply a thin layer of high smoke point oil (like flaxseed, canola, or grapeseed oil), and heat it in the oven or on the stove until it begins to smoke. Allow it to cool, and repeat the process 2-3 times for an initial seasoned surface. Continued cooking will build up additional seasoning.

Yes, carbon steel cookware is considered safe. It does not contain toxic coatings and, when seasoned properly, offers a natural non-stick surface. Additionally, small amounts of iron leaching into food can be beneficial for those in need of increased dietary iron.

Yes, because of its ferromagnetic properties, most carbon steel cookware is compatible with induction cooktops. Always check the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure compatibility.

To clean carbon steel cookware, wash with hot water and a soft sponge or brush; avoid using soap or abrasive materials that can remove the seasoning. Dry thoroughly immediately after washing, ideally on a stove over low heat to prevent rusting. If rust occurs, it can often be scrubbed off and the pan re-seasoned.

Carbon steel woks are excellent for cooking due to their rapid heat response, even heat distribution, superior heat capacity, and durability. They are especially favored for stir-fry dishes where high heat is essential.

It is recommended to avoid cooking acidic foods such as tomatoes, vinegar-based sauces, or wine reductions in a newly seasoned carbon steel wok as they can strip away the seasoning layer. Once the wok is well-seasoned, it can handle such ingredients better.

Yes, carbon steel is generally preferred over stainless steel for woks due to its ability to quickly conduct heat and acquire a natural non-stick surface through seasoning. Stainless steel woks don’t season the same way and food tends to stick to them more easily.

Requires regular seasoning to maintain its non-stick surface and prevent rust.
Not dishwasher safe; must be hand washed and thoroughly dried after each use.
