Smithey’s No. 6 Cast Iron Skillet is the handsomest piece of cookware I’ve ever acquired. Its small-scale size is ideally suited for cooking Ricotta Dutch Baby Pancakes, heating sauces, sautéing vegetables, reheating leftovers, roasting potatoes in the oven, and single-serving cooking tasks. Pre-seasoned with grapeseed oil, it is ready to hit the stovetop upon arrival. To properly break it in, Smithey recommends initially cooking dishes requiring “higher heat, movement, and a good amount of oil or fat.”
Handmade in the United States, this burnished bronze skillet is a wonderful testament to American craftsmanship. Every detail about this cast iron pan is impeccable—from its vintage-looking exterior to its easy-to-clean, non-stick interior surface. If you are gifting this cookware, opting to have it personally engraved is a lovely finishing touch.
Is it splurge-worthy? Absolutely. You cannot go wrong by adding this heirloom-quality, lifetime-guaranteed cast iron cookware to your pantry.
