French skillets are a cross between a frying pan and a saute pan, they have higher, less flared sides than the Fry Pans and hold more volume. Our French Skillets have long handles, like the Fry Pans that stay cool on the stovetop and fit comfortably in the hand. The blue color is the result of heating polished steel to 620 degrees. Combined with organic virgin coconut oil, it is an effective and beautiful way to preseason the pans. They won’t stay blue however - these are iron pans and therefore reactive, so they’ll change as you cook and continue to season them, but their polished finish will continue to contribute to an easily obtained nonstick surface. Because the pans are handmade, the handles and upper width dimensions are approximate.
