Carbon Steel Cookware
Not only are carbon steel pans made to be used heavily—which is why they are a staple of restaurant kitchens—but they also get better with time, thanks to a layer of seasoning that builds up the more you cook in it. Besides making food taste richer, it makes the pan naturally non-stick. It can handle the high heat necessary to perfectly char steaks, burgers, their vegetarian alter-egos, and so much more. Oh, and they’ll last forever.
