This traditional, heavy-duty cooking iron is made from cast black iron—as such, it’s heavy and excellent at retaining heat. Set it atop meat, vegetables, or sandwiches on the hob or grill to guarantee a strong and even sear, as well as a uniformly flat finished product. If you leave it for a little while, it will get hot too, reducing cooking time and ensuring that food browns evenly on both sides. The knob handle is hand-turned oak, and stays cool while the iron gets hot. Pre-seasoned with flax oil for a natural easy-release finish that only gets better over time when properly maintained.

Why we love it‘Great for keeping bacon flat so that it crisps all over – no more curly, patchily-cooked rashers!’
About The Brand
Netherton Foundry is a small-scale, family-run workshop based in Shropshire that makes cookware using time-honoured methods and materials. Their pots, pans, and select bakeware are made by turning whole plates of raw black iron on a lathe (which is from the 1930s) and shaping them with rods—an industrial process that gives their products an unparalleled lightness while preserving all the advantages of cast iron cookware, such as heat retention and durability. All their cookware is thoroughly pre-seasoned with flax oil for a natural easy-release finish.Shop Netherton Foundry
