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.

Great skillet!!

I use my Smithey ford everything. I have 5 pcs of the skillets and they all cook great and are so easy to clean up. The only thing I don’t like and it may be my fault, is the smooth coppery color in the skillet surface, turns a stainless after numerous uses, but it does nothing to affect the cooking. I will never buy anything else, in fact I’m slowly buying all our kids and grandkids a skillet because I believe they will be an heirloom.

Love them!

So, aside from a single 46 year old stainless steel Revere Ware pan ( I have all the pots that go with it!) , I threw out all my Teflon pans that I had to replace year after year. ALL of them. I am fully committed to Smithey now. And I LOVE them. I purchase the 3 piece set. The learning curve was really easy and from the start nothing sticked. I admit it kinda crushed me that the copper color disappeared , but am relishing the fact that these pans will be with my family for generations! Thank you, Smithey!

Really impressed

Really impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of these pans. I got the three iron pans 8 inch 10“ 12 inch. Have use the 8 inch and 12 inch for various dishes. The best thing about them is I know that they don’t leach any kind of bad chemicals into the food. They’re easy to cook on and easy to clean. I was hesitant on spending the money for them, But it has been a great investment. No regrets at all. I love well crafted products, and your cast iron pans are just wonderful.
