Description

Say hello to cast iron’s younger, and thus, obviously, cooler cousin. It offers all the same benefits – a beautiful sear, even heat, a natural nonstick surface over time – but it’s sooo much lighter and easier to care for. Restaurants rave that it’s nearly indestructible.

"Like cast iron but not heavy! I reach for it 3 times a day – frying up toast or pork sausage on the stove, broiling a steak in my 1500° infrared oven. Low, medium and high heat – it's shockingly versatile!" –George Motz, Hamburger America

Why it's great

  • Ultra high quality Carbon Steel: Carbon Steel heats fast, gets super hot, and can be seasoned to a nearly nonstick surface over time. 
  • Pre-seasoned: Most carbon steel pans need seasoning out of the box. We took care of that – with 2 layers of pure corn oil – so you can start cooking right away. Like cast iron, the more you use it, the more nonstick the surface becomes. 
  • Optimal heat: 2.5mm thick core guarantees even heating and high heat retention without making the pan too heavy to hold. No warping. Ever. 
  • Oven safe: Pop it in the oven up to 500 degrees. 
  • Larger Cooking Surface: Not all pans are created equal. We expanded ours, so our 10” pan holds 20% more than other 10” pans. Way more space to work with!
  • Handle Shape: After much testing, we designed one that’s comfortable to lift, tip, and move.
  • Stay-Cool Silicone Grip: Soft and textured, it slides on and off so you can pop it in the dishwasher.

A natural (and better) alternative to traditional nonstick. Carbon Steel becomes more nonstick the more you use and will last forever. If you’re tired of replacing old nonstick pans that start sticking, then this is a pan you’ll love.

It’ll Truly Last a Lifetime

There is nothing you can do to this pan that’ll ruin it. The thing we love most about carbon steel is that there is always a simple fix to any problem. Buy it once, use it forever. That’s true value.

It’s Naturally Nonstick (No Chemicals)

Traditional nonstick relies on chemical coatings. Ceramic pans are very fragile. But through the process of seasoning, carbon steel is naturally nonstick — and just gets better with time…just like your grandma’s cast iron pan.

Considerably Lighter Than Your Grandma’s Cast Iron

We love cast iron, but dear lord is that a heavy pan to hold (especially when hot). This lightweight carbon steel still has some heft to it, but it’s much easier to hold and move around the kitchen with ease.

Three Reasons This Pan Might Not Be For You

We believe in honesty at Misen. We don’t think every product is right for every person. Here’s what you should consider before buying.

Wiping a Misen Pre-Seasoned Carbon Steel pan clean before hand washing.

You like to let pans soak overnight or only use the dishwasher.

No judgment from us! But carbon steel can’t sit in water or go in the dishwasher or it’ll rust, so if you’re not okay hand-washing this pan, you should steer clear of it.

You already have cast iron you really love.

This pan is pretty similar to cast iron, so if you already have one of those you love then you might not find value in this. However, a lot of cast iron lovers find their way over to carbon steel because it’s so much lighter — eliminating one of the worst aspects of cast iron - it’s weight!

Seasoning a Pre-Seasoned Carbon Steel Pan to maintain its nonstick surface.

You don’t want to season a pan in the future.

Even though we pre-season the pan so you can use it right away, there is some value to re-seasoning your pan every now and then if it needs it. The process takes about 10 minutes and can be done directly on the stovetop, but we understand not everyone has the time for that.

    Great Pan

    This is a great pan. It is now my go-to pan. No more worries about "non-stick" pans and their saftey

    Not this pan but prior

    I bought one of the original Misen carbon steel pans and seasoned it exactly according to instructions with the included carbon steel seasoning wax. Three times. Haven’t used the pan a single time because it’s anything but non-stick. I love my other Misen products - knives, saucier and non-stick fry pan, etc. - but am hesitant to go out on a limb again for this one.

    Bought Unseasoned prior to roll out

    Hello,

    I really like my pans, I bought them prior to be introduced to the general public. I've done everything to make sure they don't stick, seasoning after seasoning and they still stick. I love the even heat distribution, they do make great steaks. However, using wax, wiping down after use, cleaning with approved products & I still have issues with them sticking. The per-seasoned pans were not available when I bought mine.

    Poor Performance, Poor Service

    Overall couldn't get the pan to season with Avocado oil, and had a bad time with the product. It was probably due to my own misunderstanding, but the product was backed with the 100% satisfaction guarantee, so I went ahead with the original purchase with that peace of mind.

    Only to find out, they make service VERY complicated. I would not trust their warranty or service.
