    Field makes a great product. I love their stuff. i will have to check out that sale. I did see an ad for it. Sounds like they have pretty good deals.

    Yep, actually the pan to the left is carbon steel. They work very simialr. Although I do like using the wrought iron more. It is a little thicker, holds heat better and seem to clean up a little easier. Also, I found it easier to season as well.

    I missed this thread in the past. Now I want a whole set of these. That will have to wait, just bought the griddle and the dual handle 16" skillet from Field - both seconds but still pricey. I don't see any flaws in them myself.

    Spinaker Excellent, have you ever had the chance to use carbon steel? If so how do they compare in performance and weight?
    Meathead should visit the factory in Chicago!

This pan is not cast iron, but wrought iron. It is softer and more malleable than cast iron. It actually gets stronger as time goes on and the metal is somewhat flexible which mean very little risk of warping or cracking.

    For starters, this pan has a gorgeous handle. Nice and light, with open areas to allow heat to dissipate. Making the handle cool and easy to use while cooking. One unique thing that I really love able the handle is the USA Shape that is stamped out of the end of the handle. (They do this with their Australian-made pans as well.) The handle narrows at in the middle and gets wider towards your hand, making the handle sleek and ergonomic to hold on too. It also saves on weight.

    The pan itself is smooth and polished. I bought mine unseasoned so I can work my own magic on this sucka! The stamp on the back of the pan lets me know that I got a 1st edition pan, which is an awesome addition to the collection. Overall, I am very impressed with the craftsmanship of the pan and I can't wait to get cooking!

    So it's been 4 years. After that length of time what are your thoughts on this pan when compaired to others you have?

    called the "noni". They make lots of claims about even heating, but that’s not really true. However. Really well made and I can’t imagine it ever wearing out. I just burned a bunch of stuff in it (attention wanders) and then cleaned it. This is the after pic.

    Thanks for that explanation Histrix, that does make sense. Actually "wrought" iron is somewhat of a misnomer in general since its really not a mass produced product any longer with the advent of carbon steel. The word wrought actually refers to the process of hammering or working as you mentioned. The alloy itself uses I believe a silica instead of carbon and is somewhat more brittle as a result. That's why I was curious as to why someone would bring back an old alloy unless it had some property that gave it better cooking characteristics.

    Their website talks about AUS-ION being made from low carbon steel. Wrought iron of old was not carbon steel so you may be right, it's an improper use of a term, unless of course they are referring to the stamping and not the alloy. Regardless, as you say, they look like cool pans and would love to hear Spinaker's review as well. I'm cooking with All-Clad stainless pans and my collection of cast iron with good results. I've just been toying with the idea of a carbon steel pan for sometime. I may still give this one another look.

    Thanks again, most helpful insight !!!
