Stunning / timeless appearance. Couldn't believe how sturdy and well made Smithey CAST Ironware is. This was my first time using CAST Iron, got tired of replacing non-stick pans every couple of years. I read all the helpful hints on the website on heating, cooking and seasoning and jumped right in to my first try. I've cooked a chicken pot pie, cornbread, and smash burgers. Absolutely the best I've ever had. Cleaning and seasoning was a breeze, no sticking at all. I'm so glad I found Smithey, couldn't be more please. If you're thinking about getting a Smithey, end the debate and get it, you'll be totally pleased.
