Is your cookware ready to use?
Yes! It’s pre-seasoned and ready to cook with, right out of the box.
Can cast iron be used on an induction stove?
Yes, it certainly can. Most induction stovetops are glass though, so be careful whenever setting your cookware down, or moving it across your stovetop to avoid scratching the surface.
Why does it look bronzey and not black?
Our cookware is double seasoned with flaxseed oil, which gives it a strong base of protection against rust, a naturally non-stick surface, and a lustrous bronzy hue. Some other cast iron cookware is seasoned with soy and vegetable oil blends and fired at very high temperatures, resulting in the black color that you might be more familiar with. We’ve found our method to be excellent in its performance, and most true to traditional home seasoning. And if it’s black that you’re after, don’t worry - your cookware will darken over time with use.
How heavy is your cookware?
Our cast iron cookware is some of the lightest, most well-balanced on the market. The egg pan weighs 1lb, the 9in skillet weighs just under 4.5lb, and the Dutch Oven weighs 9lb. Thanks to the long handle on the 9in skillet, its weight is distributed more evenly than on other cast iron cookware, which means less strain on your wrist whether you’re cooking in it or serving from it.
How does your cookware compare with
other high-end brands?
Ours has been designed to be the most beautiful and highly functional cast iron cookware you can buy. The cooking surfaces have been CNC machined smooth - all the way up the sidewalls - to provide the best performance and easiest release of your food. It’s an unparalleled cooking experience.
Each of our handles has been designed as an abstraction of a Cherry tree branch. Not just a visual feature, it has resulted in handles that are wonderfully pleasing to hold and use as well. Because they’re longer than most other cast iron handles, they stay cool longer, and balance the weight of the pans better as well.
Are there any health benefits to cooking
with cast iron?
Yes, there are!
No synthetic polymers coming into contact with your food. While non-stick coatings are wonderfully slippery, the fumes that come off of them at high heat have been linked to health complications and even cancer. Our cast iron cookware is seasoned with naturally polymerized flaxseed oil, giving you a safe, high performance surface to cook on.
Trace iron supplementation. We’re talking small numbers here, but they do add up. Studies have shown that especially when cooking more acidic foods (like tomato sauce) in cast iron, the iron content of your food can jump a few mg, which won’t affect its taste, but will certainly benefit your health.
The cast iron process is sustainable and green. There is very little waste in the production of cast iron. There are only three basic elements used in the cast iron process: heat, sand, and iron. Both the sand and iron are entirely recyclable, and the heat from most new furnaces it generated through induction, which is wonderfully efficient. This means less negative environmental impact on our planet, which is a health benefit to us all.
Is your cookware made in the USA?
Yes! We are committed to quality and American manufacturing.
Our cookware is cast and machined in Pennsylvania and seasoned by hand in Providence, RI.
