There's not a snowball's chance in hell that Iron Born is using iron pans.  Detroit style is always made with either steel or aluminum. Cast iron would take way too long to heat up in the oven,and you'd never find kitchen staff willing to work for you.  Can you imagine washing that many cast iron pans? Yeesh!

 

This is what Iron Born is using:

 

https://www.nextpittsburgh.com/eatdrink/the-detroit-style-pizza-wave-gains-momentum-in-the-citys-culinary-scene/

 

"Pittsburgh native chef Pete Tolman of Iron Born uses a two-day fermentation process to create his flavorful, cloud-like dough, but credits the same kind of small steel pans for getting the caramelization and crunch just right"

 

https://theincline.com/2018/03/10/how-detroit-is-changing-pittsburgh-pizza-as-we-know-it/

 

"His process begins with mixing the dough, letting it rest for 24 hours, rounding the dough, and letting it rest again for 24 hours before pressing it into aluminum, non-stick pans."

 

As you can see, he's using both aluminum and steel. If you watch this video carefully,

 

 

you'll see a pan at the very beginning with a squared off edge- that's aluminum.  Later, you'll see a group of pans with wired corners.  That's steel.

 

The two most popular brands of Detroit pans are

 

https://www.detroitstylepizza.com/product/10-x-14-steel-dsp-pan/ (steel)

 

https://lloydpans.com/landing-pages/detroit (anodized aluminum)

 

If you look at the video carefully, you'll see that the first pan looks exactly like Lloyds and the later pans are perfect facsimiles of the Detroit Style Pizza Co.  Based on their massive popularity within the industry, I guarantee you that these are the two brands that Iron Born is working with.
