Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron

Why use carbon steel cooktops rather than  cast iron?  What is the difference and why is carbon steel any better?

Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar.  This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling.  The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon.  This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal.  As the Carbon gets added to the steel mix, Carbon has a tendency to clump together into lumpy carbides and form pockets of pure carbon (graphite).  When this happens, the metal becomes very hard and very brittle.  It disrupts the grain of the metal, making it irregular, brittle and prone to cracking.  This is the reason why Cast Iron often cracks or breaks.  When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven.  When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks.  This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped.  The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.

Because Carbon Steel has only 1% Carbon, this phenomena is negligible and much easier to control and prevent from happening.  The grain structure in Carbon Steel is very uniform and virtually impervious to heat stress or shock.  In addition to this, Carbon Steel is “rolled” in the steel mill.  It is forced between heavy rollers while the steel is hot.  After rolling the steel and getting it to the right thickness, the steel is “doused” with cold water that causes the grain structure to freeze in place.  This makes Carbon Steel very strong and the choice material to cook on.  Even with uneven heat loads or dropping Carbon Steel, it will not break or crack.  This allows for a lifetime of use.

The larger the surface area and the thinner the material, the more prone Cast Iron is to cracking and breaking.  In a grill, the heat is never uniform.  This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts.  For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of Carbon Steel.

      Grill insert

      This is a great addition to the big green egg. Makes grilling even more fun, We are cooking outside 4 days a week. Seasoning the griddle was quick and easy it is now non-stick. So happy with the grill insert

      Just buy it

      Absolutely love this product. Purchased one to move back and forth between my XL BGE and my Weber Summit charcoal grill. Quality product, easy to season, and a joy to grill on. My only regret is that I waited so long to finally pull the trigger on purchasing.

      Great Edition to my Egg Collection

      I have 3 Large BGE’s, one set up with the insert. Used it to cook fish, veggies steaks and chicken. I found it great to use for all of the above. I would buy a 40 inch Euro in a heartbeat to add to the 8 grills I have now but would also need to hire divorce lawyer. Great product

      Worked great

      My griddle insert fit perfectly and worked great for all kinds of food. Tested it out with vegetables, pork chops, skirt steak, shrimp, and ahi tuna. Worked well with the different sized foods and was able to control the temperatures pretty easily. Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase.
