Real-deal steel.

This sloped carbon steel sauté pan with an extra-long, curved handle is the one you want around for both easy flipping jobs and, say, pan-roasting a thick, juicy pork chop. Each pan is forged by hand from start to finish, and comes pre-seasoned with coconut oil to protect against rust. After the first few times you season your pan, you’ll begin to build up a shiny layer of polymers that will create a naturally nonstick surface that even fried eggs will slip right off of. Think of it like your favorite cast iron—but even better.

Nota bene: Blanc Creatives have shifted their pan sizing a bit! They now offer a larger pan that is 13” lip to lip and 10” around the base, so the 11” pan is now a medium. (Steak for two, anyone?)
