Swedish born, Skeppshult began making cast iron cookware by hand from virgin iron ore in 1906. More than 100 years later they are still hand-pouring and hand-finishing every single product they make; a true testament to the level of craftsmanship Skeppshult brings to the table. Iron cookware is capable of withstanding, dispersing, and conducting heat far better than its non-stick cohorts that have become popular in recent years. In addition, iron is capable of being used on any cooking surface and offers a chemical-free cooking experience. Whether is vegetables, meat, or grains; anything prepared in cast iron becomes fortified with iron and minerals. Due to its high quality construction, each pan, wok, and dish Skeppshult makes is extremely durable and will most likely last through decades of use. Just in case anyone has doubt in regard to Skeppshult's durability, each item comes with a 25 year warranty.
