If you’re in the market for some new cookware, Sur La Table’s selection of BK Black Steel carbon steel cookware may be what you need.
Lighter than cast iron, carbon steel cookware provides exceptional browning and searing, is heat responsive, heats evenly and is said to improve with each use.
After each use, the cookware becomes darker, forming a layer of patina that improves each piece’s durability and non-stick properties. In fact, BK Black Steel was the winner of the prestigious 2019 Red Dot Award for design.
BK Black Steel is naturally pre-seasoned with oil during the production process. This cookware ships with a thin silicone wax coating that’s easier to remove than a thick layer of beeswax or grease, so it’s ready to use after a quick wash with soap. Cleaning is as simple as pouring on hot water, wiping, then drying.

BK has a long history of innovation. In 1851, coppersmith Hendrik Berk of Kampen, Holland, was commissioned by local inhabitants and businesses to make milk churns, pots, pans and other cooking utensils.
Forty years later, he added a protective layer of enamel to his steel pans and tins and introduced the world to the first enameled steel Dutch oven. This laid the foundation for BK, which continues to bring high quality and innovative engineering to their approach to cookware.
