1/13/2018 - Production Update
  • The next batch of 8”, 10” and 12” skillets haven’t arrived yet, but we are expecting them soon!

  • Handle covers are done with production and will be shipping soon. We have even started production on our new handle cover to fit the Michigan made handle design.

  • As I mentioned before, I wanted to have a batch of the 10.5” skillets run before taking the tooling out of service to cut the gates in, however we found that manually attaching the gates to the bottom of the template was causing some minor indentations. Rather than have these show up in the finished product we decided it was time to just cut in the gates. We are working on the tooling right now and hope to resume production soon

  • Tooling for the 13” skillet will be done by the end of next week. This was a monumental task completed in record time. This includes tooling for a rather extraordinary custom tree as well. We are working on the packaging right now as we will be in production with the 13” by the END OF THE MONTH! If you can’t tell, I’m excited about this.

  • Our new oven arrived! Still a fair amount of wiring / plumbing to get it installed. This is how all our Michigan made products are going to be seasoned.
  • We are expecting the rivet machine next Tuesday.

More updates coming soon!
