Restored special skillet

I was so excited when I saw an article describing how Smithey restored old cast iron skillets. I sent my skillet (either my grandmother or great grandmother bought the skillet) and waited excitedly to see what could be done to fix it. When the skillet was returned, I was so pleased. It looks wonderful. Cannot recommend Smithey highly enough. Wonderful company.

VERY Happy Customer

I was extremely pleased with the care taken by Smithey in the handling of my skillet. It did not take long for them to restore it and return it to me. I cannot thank them enough for their work. I will be sending all of my skillets for restoration one by one. I can’t wait! Thank you again!!

Restored cast iron = Restored memories!

I originally discovered Smithey Ironware from an article in my Southern Living. The hardest part of the process was finding a box suitable for shipping my heavy dutch oven to them. The rest was easy AND quick. My dutch oven originally belonged to my grandmother (and possibly her. mother who owned a boarding house in SC in the early 1900's.) It was handed down to my mother, and I can vividly remember it atop her stove full of savory goodness. When my mother passed the 8-quart dutch oven came to my home, and I stored it in a cupboard and never thought about it again (for 24 years). My husband and I recently moved and rediscovered the pot while packing for the move. It was rusted and in sad shape, and I didn't know how to bring it back to life. Enter Smithey. Once I read the article I initiated the restoration, and the rest is history. My dutch oven looks brand new. I felt this deep sense of connection with my mother and grandmother when I pulled it out of the box. I am looking for recipes now so that I can fully embrace cast iron cooking. I have dropped hints to my husband that I would like the Smithey cast iron cleaning kit for Christmas. I could not be more pleased.

Amazing and fast

I was impressed by both the speed of delivery, the care of packaging, and the excellent work.

The first thing I did was cook eggs on my items and NONE OF THEM GOT STUCK! I've never had that before with my cast irons. Thank y'all so much for the amazing work
