Our cast iron cookware is made to last for generations — and we’re here to help.

In all but the rarest of cases, continuing to cook will be the cure.
Is my skillet compatible with all cooktop surfaces?
Yes. Our Skillets perform well on a variety of stovetop burner types — including glass-top electric and induction burners. For best results on any burner, we recommend pre-heating your skillet at low to medium heat for up to 5 minutes before use.
Can I bake with my skillet?
Yes, your oven can't get hot enough for your skillet.
Can I grill or cook over a live fire with my skillet?
Most definitely. Your skillet is extremely durable and we recommend it for cooking in any situation.
Is my skillet non-stick?
The cooking surfaces of our skillets are polished to be some of the smoothest cast iron available and comes with grapeseed oil pre-seasoning which gives your skillet a start in its non-stick process. Once received give your pan a quick wash with warm water and a little soap, dry thoroughly, coat it all over with a thin layer of grapeseed oil, and you’re ready to start cooking.
What color is cast iron cookware?
Cast iron is naturally grey. The first layers of seasoning we apply to your skillet give it a copper shade. As you cook it will take on a time-honored deep black patina.
Where are your products made?
Almost all of our products are made in the great State of Texas. Every product of ours that is made in Texas will have that detailed in its product description.
Can I return or exchange my skillet?
Yes but please note that we only replace skillets and other products within 30 days of delivery. Please see return details on our terms and policies page.
