All of our products are handmade and hand-assembled in Waynesboro, Va. Meet the team members that make it all happen here.
Each piece of Blanc Creatives Pro Cookware line starts with a spun 11 gauge carbon steel base, sourced from a 100-year-old factory in Philidelphia which is then crafted and assembled into the final product in-house.
Sometimes we collaborate with other American makers such as Sunhouse in Kentucky on the Cleaning Brush sets and Linoto in New York on the Linen Towel sets.
You can sign up to receive an email notification when the item is available for purchase again. This does not reserve the item for you. We will notify the waiting list prior to the general public.
As our inventory levels are limited and fluid, being on the waiting list does not guarantee that the item will still be available to purchase by the time you check back on the website. If you are unable to purchase the item before it sells out again, please rejoin the waitlist in order to receive the next restock notification.
We do not currently accept custom orders but are open to suggestions for products we might consider adding to our product line in the future.
Your Carbon Steel cookware will work with induction cooktops.
It is good practice to use the appropriately sized element (or eye) in relation to the diameter of the cooking base. The eye should not be smaller in diameter than the pan base. Too small of an eye can concentrate heat in a small area and cause the steel to expand and contract at a different rate than the surrounding area and lead to warpage.
Be sure to ramp up the heat gradually as rapid heating may lead to warpage.
Our steel pans are made of mild carbon steel. Carbon steel is often compared to cast iron but carbon steel contains less carbon than cast iron which makes it more ductile and less brittle.
As a result, carbons steel pans can be made lighter and are more pliable than cast-iron pans but perform very similarly.
Our wood goods are finished with a food-safe linseed oil with beeswax.
Our carbon steel cookware does not have a synthetic non-stick coating. However, by developing a layer of seasoning, you can achieve a natural non-stick cooking surface. Refer to our preferred seasoning method on our Seasoning page.
