Carbon Steel Does It All

What if one pan could do everything the best traditional stainless-steel, cast-iron, and nonstick pans can do—and, in some cases, even do it a little better? Carbon-steel skillets, once rarely found outside restaurant kitchens, are being embraced by home cooks for their light weight, versatility, heat retention, and durability. They have a reputation for being as great at browning as they are at keeping delicate foods from sticking. In European home kitchens, these pans are hugely popular. Even Julia Child had a few carbon-steel pieces alongside her familiar rows of copper cookware.

"Worth its weight in gold for the practical cook who wants to feel confident about putting good food on the table."

Ease of Use

This affordable pan had it all: thick, solid construction; a smooth interior with no handle rivets to bump the spatula or trap food; an ergonomically angled handle; and sides flared just right for easy access but high enough to contain splashes. Steaks formed a deeply crisp crust, tarte Tatin caramelized beautifully and released neatly, and fried eggs just slipped around in the pan.

Ease of Use

Nonstick Ability

We loved this pan’s solid construction and slick nonstick surface. Scrambled eggs slid out of the pan without hesitation, steaks flipped easily, and the pan performed effortlessly as we moved it from the stovetop to the oven when making shepherd's pie. The actual cooking surface is only about 7 inches wide, so we had to be extra-careful when sautéing a skillet full of vegetables for shepherd’s pie; some pieces flew over the sides as we stirred. However, our scaled-down recipes for two people fit well in this pan, and we loved its long, sturdy handle.

Nonstick Ability

We loved this pan’s thick, solid construction. Once we’d seasoned it, the slick surface worked like nonstick, and scrambled eggs slid off without a hitch. The long, sturdy, comfortable handle allowed us to effortlessly pick up the skillet and move it around the stovetop. The actual cooking surface is only about 5.8 inches wide, so the skillet’s capacity is small: We had to be extra-careful when browning a stick of butter, as a few splashes of butter sloshed over the side when we stirred. However, with some extra attention, this could easily be avoided.
