The cast iron that we sell is made in a foundry in Mexico. Since Mexico is our neighbor, we often forget that they are a much older country that we are. Mexico was inhabited long before the Spanish Conquest in the 16th Century, and they were making cast iron before the United States even existed! So you can rest assured that the cast iron we sell is of the highest quality – with a rich history of excellence! Although cooking with cast iron may seem like an old-fashioned choice in the kitchen, it really is a must in the modern kitchen. Cast-iron skillets conduct heat beautifully, go from stove top to oven with no problem and last for decades. There are some great health reasons to cook with cast iron: you can use less oil when cooking, it is a chemical-free alternative to nonstick pans, and it fortifies your food with iron.
