This Might Be the First Time We’ve Seen These Cast-Iron Skillets on Sale
Since launch day, Isaac Morton’s South Carolina-based Smithey Ironware Company has held to a singular blend of old and new school cast-iron cookware making. Basically, his pans sport a machine-smoothed surface that comes pretty close to non-stick but use more weight than vintage skillets of old (older iron was typically cast much thinner than newer iron). This added weight means more balanced heating and superior heat insulation, but a bit less heat control — once it’s hot, it’s going to stay that way.
Today, Morton’s 8-, 10- and 12-inch skillets are all 20 percent off during Food52’s Cyber Monday event with code YAYMONDAY at checkout, a discount that brings each pan to an all-time low price.
