Why this Set?

This set includes the first three skillets Smithey was founded with: our No. 8 Chef, No. 10 Traditional, and No. 12 Traditional skillets. Each featuring our smooth polished interior finish, heritage-inspired design elements, signature helper handles, and superior craftsmanship. An exceptional gift for anyone from the newlywed to the most discerning chef, these skillets are destined to be modern heirlooms in any home. Use them well.

THE CASE FOR
OUR CAST IRON

USE IT ANYWHERE

From kitchens to campfires, your Smithey is at home wherever there is heat and is designed to work on all sources, from gas and fire to induction and electric. And don’t worry, it won’t scratch your stovetop.

INVEST IN YOUR KITCHEN

Your grandchildren will thank you! We’ve designed and crafted every Smithey to withstand the test of time, become even better with age, and be an heirloom in your family’s kitchen. 

THE PERFECT WEIGHT

It’s true—cast iron can be heavy. Luckily, this is something we take into account when designing new pieces. We craft every Smithey to be as light as it can be while maintaining the perfect weight for optimal heat retention.

EASY TO CLEAN

Cast iron gets a bad rap for being hard to clean. We’re here to bust that myth and let you know that polished cast iron is easy to clean. Unlike rough cast iron, which allows food to get stuck in the crevices, polished cast iron like Smithey has a smooth surface that practically wipes clean. And, despite popular belief, you can use soap.

FAQ’s: The Founder's Set

Is the No. 8 Chef Skillet engravable?

No, it is not, but the No. 10 skillet and No. 12 skillet are!

Do all the skillets in this set have heat rings?

No, our No. 8 Chef Skillet does not have a heat ring, but the No. 10 skillet and No. 12 skillet do!

Founders 3 Piece Set

I have my Grandmothers Griswold pans from the 1940's. These pans are now my go to! They will become a sentimental favorite just like Grandma's. They will get passed to kids and grandkids for sure.

Worth every penny!

Absolutely worth every single penny. The quality of these is a work of art, but not a fragile one, I completely expect someone to smile every time they use these 150 years from now.
