Cast iron skillets
£11.50 – £63.50
Black, pre-seasoned cast iron skillets. Although heavier, cast iron distributes heat much more evenly than steel, in fact in tests on cooking utensils it is out performed only by copper. Cast iron bonds with oil in a similar way to carbon steel, forming what amounts to a non-stick coating, one that is improved by heat, rather than caused to peel. Made at the Lodge foundry, South Pittsburg, Tennessee. Five sizes: 8.8cm - about 3.58", 16.5cm - about 6.58", 20cm - about 8", 26cm - about 10.5", and 30.5cm - about 12".
