A Message From Our Founder
"Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations."
- Paul Rand
The words above tell you a lot about the way we think at Smithey Ironware. I started Smithey with some simple thoughts about what constitutes a piece of premium cast iron cookware. Surface smoothness, weight, wall angle, handles, and pour-spout dimensions dance around in my noggin more than I care to admit. These elements (and more) are important for you to appreciate a first-rate piece of cookware. At Smithey, we deliver on this commitment. Our goal is to be first in mind when you think of premium cast iron.
But more than our commitment to creating "awfully cool" cookware, we want you to use your Smithey to create meals and memories of your own. Don’t let your Smithey dither in a cupboard. Proudly display it on your stovetop. Put it to work! Don’t allow convention to keep you from new dishes or methods of caring for your cast iron. I assure you, that you’ll be happy with the results. And when it’s time to pass your Smithey to the next generation, you’ll be all the wiser.
Enjoy and Use It Well!
