Black steel pans are pre-heated thus giving them the black / blue steel name within the industry.
This cookware is an excellent heat conductor. It is suitable with all heat sources, including induction and oven proof. It is a high density metal and therefore doesn’t retain odors. It non-coated and if protected from rusting, it will last a lifetime. It withstands high temperatures and allows for longer preheating. A steel pan may come with different finishes. Much lighter than cast-iron, a steel pan lasts forever. After being seasoned, it acquires natural non-stick properties that won’t chip, scratch or peel off.

Be cautious as the handle gets hot so our suggestion is to purchase the silicon sleeves. Each pan comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
Both steel pans come with a coating of food-safe soy bean vegetable oil to prevent rusting in storage and shipping and is then placed in a plastic bag. As the bag will stick to the oil, be aware that it will leave temporary marks and spots which will be removed when the pan is washed and seasoned.
