Artfully crafted cast iron cookware by Smithey Ironware. Cast by machine, finished by hand. These buffed and polished cast iron skillets feature a satin-like surface that become naturally non-stick with use. Equally artistic and functional, the Farmhouse Skillet is one of our favorites. Inspired by designs from the 18th Century, it is hand forged for a primitive and beautiful result.

Use and Care: We recommend a light wash with warm water to clean your Smithey. If food remnants are stubborn, a soft scrape with a metal spatula, or a touch of dish soap and a nylon scouring pad will work. Avoid heavy-pressure scrubbing. It is important to thoroughly dry your Smithey after each use. Then apply a light layer of vegetable oil and store on your range. We like to place over a burner for a few minutes to ensure it is dry. Don’t put your Smithey in the dishwasher or soak in water. Its non-stick surface will improve as you cook with it and/or add additional seasoning layers.
About Smithey: Based in Charleston, South Carolina, Smithey Ironware is a backyard story. The founder, Isaac Morton, was known for tinkering around in his woodshed and restoring beautiful old cookware pieces, which he would then gift to friends and family. Creating and sharing a cast iron cookware line that honored the classic style of vintage pieces, but also harnessed modern technology and processes, just felt like a good idea. And from that idea – that a lost art might be restored into a modern icon - Smithey Ironware was born.
