We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. If you love the ease of cooking in a nonstick skillet, but consider a good sear on your steak a necessity, a carbon steel frying pan can give you the best of both worlds. Once properly seasoned, they're just as slippery as Teflon, and they can stand up to super high heat, making them perfect for cooking over open flames on a grill or campfire. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best carbon steel frying pan on Amazon.
