If we're comparing one form of iron to another (carbon content being the only real difference here) then I would think that the mass is the driving factor. The specific heat of CI/steel should be close enough, that given the same thickness and mass between flame and food, the desirable quality of even heating should be very similar.

I reserve the right to be completely wrong. Buy one and let us know.
