The Ironclad Pan
The Ironclad Pan Company was founded in 2019 by Kate Slavin, Levi Slavin and Joe Carter. Their aim was to create a sustainable product that would be a return to beautiful craft and traditional techniques. In an era of disposable stuff, the team wanted to create a product that would last for generations.Why cast iron skillets? Levi and Kate had a set at home that they had inherited. Each daily use was a reminder of their family. And when family recipes were prepared in the original skillets—splashing oil where they had splashed oil, carefully placing fish where they had placed fish—something magical seemed to happen. It was a true connection through time. Their Cast Iron Pans can be purchased in a range of sizes and bundles and every Ironclad Pan is hand-poured and hand-finished to order.
