BK Steel Carbon Steel Fry Pan
Even better with time.
We can’t wait to cook up a storm in these lightweight carbon steel skillets, and here’s why: Each pan comes from a Dutch maker that’s been crafting cookware since 1851 (yep). The sleek metal surface heats quickly and evenly for no-fuss frying, searing, and sautéing, and it’s tough enough for even our metal utensils. Plus, it develops a natural nonstick patina over time...aka it’ll get slicker with every use. It’s also got a cast-iron handle that’s a treat to hold, and when it’s done whizzing through meal prep, it’s a snap to clean—just use hot water and a soft sponge.
Oh, and one more thing: These come pre-seasoned, so they’re ready to go after a quick wash with soap to remove the protective silicone coating it ships with. Creamy scrambled eggs, here we come!

Care & Notes
Induction compatible, metal utensil safe and oven safe up to 600°F. Hand wash only. After use, wash immediately with hot water and a soft sponge—do not use dish soap, as that will strip away the natural nonstick surface the pan cultivates over time. Dry immediately with a towel. Store in a dry place.
To season: Cover the bottom of the pan with flavorless oil and heat on medium heat for 5 minutes. Let the pan cool before draining the oil, and then wipe clean with paper towels. Repeat the process a second time and your pan is ready to go. After this process, the pan will acquire a natural nonstick property and darken over time.
