I can't buy form there though. Amazon marketplace doesn't ship
kitchen stuff outside U.K. :-(
I could buy from amazon.com where they are sold by amazon itself, but
the U.S. pans are more expensive (but may be better) and more
importantly, they aren't that nicely rounded between the bottom and
the side. And I risk custom fees. At amazon.com they have the
courtesy to call it carbon steel and that I understand. ;-)
So, I google trying to find a British supplier that ships abroad and
doesn't charge an arm and a leg for it. I find pans looking very
similar if not identical to the one in the amazon picture. At some
places they say it's black iron and at some they call it mild steel.
