||I am partnering with my friends at BK DUTCH COOKWARE to giveaway a BK DUTCH COOKWARE Black Steel 12" Skillet, MSRP: $59.95, US only. BK Black Steel 12" Skillet The creators of the first modern enameled Dutch oven, Dutch cookware company BK is pleased to announce their new line of pre-seasoned carbon steel pans, BK Black Steel. Winner of the 2019 Red Dot Award for its design, it is slated to launch in June exclusively at kitchenware retailer Sur La Table through the end of the year. Beloved by professional chefs, carbon steel pans are the secret weapon of restaurants throughout the world and a growing trend in home kitchens. Foodies looking to experience what carbon steel has to offer, however, can be disappointed by the complex seasoning process and protective wax layer of many pans on the market. While classic carbon steel pans have been a favorite of chefs, BK's Black Steel was created for passionate home cooks. BK Black Steel is perfect for people who want authentic, no nonsense carbon steel cooking. The sleek black pan is pre-seasoned and designed to develop a naturally nonstick patina layer over time with use without the need for additional seasoning or coatings. Never worry about wearing this pan out—the more it is used, the better it gets. It makes frying delicate fish, sliding out a beautifully crafted omelette, or getting a perfect sear on pork chops effortless, all from the same pan. The black color of Black Steel is the result of hot-rolled black carbon steel, which is stronger and more durable than grey carbon steel. The 2.0mm gauge thickness means it not only conducts heat well but is also extremely durable and long lasting. Safe for even metal utensils and extreme temperatures up to 600°F, this unyielding material is 3 times denser than aluminum, more durable, and better for lasting use. Tinting and staining is also limited by the dark layer. Tough, lightweight and low maintenance, this pan couldn't be simpler to clean with just hot water and a sponge. BK's state-of-the-art production process creates a unique layer of oxidized iron that acts as a barrier to moisture and protects the pan long-term from rust and natural damages that typical carbon steel faces. The more you use it, the better it gets. A perennial favorite of professional chefs, carbon steel is ultra-durable and lightweight, making it perfect for people who want authentic, no nonsense cooking. Though it's ready to go out of the box with a quick wash, over time this pan will develop a naturally nonstick patina layer that makes frying delicate fish, crafting an omelette, or getting a perfect sear on pork chops effortless. A PAN FOR LIFE Designed to develop a natural nonstick patina layer over time. PRE-SEASONED CARBON STEEL A unique oxidation layer helps protect the pan from rust and damage.
