Every time you use these remarkable skillets, they become darker, forming a layer of patina, which naturally improves their durability and nonstick properties—they’re virtually indestructible. Bk Black steel is tough, lightweight and winner of the 2019 Red dot award for design.

They’re are extremely resistant to corrosion, damage and stains thanks to a high-temperature Black iron oxide layer and are safe for use with metal utensils. Their coated cast iron handles are securely attached with rivets and shaped for comfort. Bk Black steel is naturally pre-seasoned with oil during the production process.
This cookware ships with a thin silicone wax coating that's much easier to remove than a thick layer of beeswax or grease, so it's ready to use after a quick wash with soap.

Bk has a rich history of innovation. In 1851, coppersmith Hendrik Berk of kampen, Holland, was commissioned by local inhabitants and businesses to make milk churns, pots, pans and other cooking utensils. Forty years later, he added a protective layer of enamel to his steel pans and tins and introduced the world to the first enameled steel Dutch oven. This laid the foundation for bk, which continues to bring high quality and innovative engineering to their approach to cookware. Bk’s crowning achievement came in 1951 when Queen Juliana awarded them the royal predicate—a title awarded only to organizations that hold a prominent position in their field.
