Used for over two thousand years, cast iron cookware began losing its appeal during the 1960s when non-stick products were introduced. Lighter and easier to clean, the new pans couldn’t ultimately compete on either quality or durability with the traditional material, explaining why cast iron has been making a slow yet steady comeback in recent years. Marquette Castings takes this revival to another level by using modern innovation and good design to transform the humble cast iron skillet into a top quality and improved kitchen utensil meant to last for generations. By using the investment casting manufacturing process, the company has reduced the weight of the skillets so they are easier to use day after day. This superior casting method is paired with a premium seasoning process. After casting, a hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid solution is used to create a “micro pitted” texture, ensuring that the finishing oil adheres to the surface perfectly. The skillets from this series feature not one, but four coats of baked on flax seed oil cured for three hours each. Ready to use straight out of the box, they will also age beautifully and last for many years before requiring new seasoning. Finally, the crescent gap and the longer, elegant shape of the handle minimize heat transfer and eliminate the need for an oven mitt or handle cover. The company is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter to start producing the 12’’, 10’’ and 8’’ skillets. Apart from the three sizes, backers also have the option to choose from three production batches – the first one is scheduled to ship in January 2017. Images courtesy of Marquette Castings.
