      Lotta,

      'Are black iron and mild steel the same thing'

      This may be the case but I suspect 'black iron' may be referring to
      'cast iron'.

      Used many years in the past and you can still buy cooking hardware
      made of cast iron. After much use and curing with the fats and oils
      from what's been cooked they usually turn deep black color.

      It is not the same as mild steel!
