Why Carbon Steel Pans

Why Carbon Steel Pans?

Cast-iron and carbon steel pans share many benefits — both are seasoned, can handle high heat while cooking, allow a chemical-free cooking surface, can be used in a variety of cooking settings, and have a long lifespan when cared for properly. However, there are a few key differences.

Carbon steel pans are lighter than traditional cast-iron, making them easier to maneuver around the kitchen, and less porous, which allows a smoother cooking surface than a more textured cast-iron — this will help keep food from sticking to the pan. And while we’re here, Cast-A-Way offers the first 100% American-made carbon steel pan with pouring spouts and no rivets. This creates a more seamless look, but more importantly, food won’t be sticking in those hard-to-reach areas around the rivets for cleaning!
