    Davina, I have written about Aluminized Steel in detail and you can read that article here. In short, aluminized steel is a steel sheet that has been hot-dip coated on both sides with an aluminum-silicon alloy. The silicon provides adherence of the aluminum which then protects against corrosion, allowing for the use of the product without worrying about rust. Steel has a slower heat transference but higher heat capacity and therefore will provide more even consistent heat during baking than pure aluminum. Pure aluminum has a fairly high heat conductivity, transferring the energy quickly through the pan, resulting in what some feel is uneven cooking. In other words, the bottom and sides may cook faster than the top or exposed portion of a batter.

    Carbon steel, like aluminized steel, has a high heat capacity that while slow to heat up provides more even baking with less hot spots and less over browning or scorching. Also, both will be stronger and won’t twist or bend during use like inexpensive aluminum bakeware is prone to doing.

    As to which is best, well that is a matter of personal preference. Aluminized steel is fairly ubiquitous and bakes very well, carbon and stainless steel bakeware is on the rise, but not as commonly available. I don’t think you can go wrong with either.

    Hope this helps

    Happy to find you site. Sounds like people who cares about the consumers. Can you tell me a bit about Carbon Steel compared to Aluminumized steel for bake wares?
