- Jan 30, 2011Interesting! I learned of carbon steel or milled steel cookware (I can
now add it to my list of types of cookware that I know to exist).
And, ditto to what Larry said -- I wouldn't have known ESL (BTW I've
tutored both ESL'rs as well as non ESL'rs in English reading and writing
at the local junior college here in Sacramento, California U.S.A.)

Also appears the carbon steel cookware develops a patina (cast iron
cookware does that too).
The next is reasons why to choose carbon steel versus cast iron ie
characteristics of these two different cookwares.
