No. 10.5 Skillet
Years ago, cast iron cookware was made to a higher standard. Increasing production costs and pressure from aluminum cookware forced cast iron manufactures to look for lower cost methods. This change in production method resulted in the inexpensive cast iron cookware we see on the mass market today which is notably heavier and rougher than it should be. In order to cast this skillet to the tolerances and finishes we were looking for, we turned to a casting method called Investment (or lost wax) casting which has never been used before to create cast iron cookware. It is an extremely labor-intensive process, but we think it’s worth it. With the 10.5” skillet we have brought back the casting quality that existed years ago. If you could only have one pan in the kitchen the 10.5” Cast Iron may be your best choice. Cast by hand in Michigan

Just finishing fried chicken in this beautiful pan. I am sure it will be super just like everything else i have cooked in it
All kitchens should have this skillet. Even heat distribution , lighter weight and handle that fits my grip. Love it so much ,I am now gifting to my foodie friends.
This skillet is a thing of beauty and utility. It will be part of my cooking arsenal for many, many years. Then I'll hand it down as an heirloom!
The pan came seasoned, but I did a little more as was suggested. I've used the pan almost daily ever since and could not be happier. First, it feels lighter than I expected the cast iron to be - but the beauty of the casting drew my attention away from that. Next, the pan worked perfectly as directed, heated thoroughly before beginning to cook. It cleans beautifully, with sticky food releasing easily and the original surface restored. Very nicely done.
Have been eyeing cast iron for sometime. The weight and the finish sold me. So far it has lived up to everything claimed on website. Think I maybe gifting some for the holidays.
