Cast iron has long been revered by serious cooks for its superior heat retention, making it the go-to pan for searing, sauteing and roasting. Portland based Finex set out to improve upon this kitchen classic with a unique octagonal design that aids in pouring and heavy duty steel coil handles that stay cool. The lid allows for gentle steaming and poaching methods. Solid brass details complete the design. Locally handmade, polished smooth and triple finished with an organic flax seed oil, this high performance, ultra-premium pan will last for generations. 10" cooking surface.
