Our indestructible spun iron ladle is designed to last a lifetime. This giant cooking ladle is made from a full ⅛” thick piece of iron stock, and is extra long to let you reach into deep pots, across a crowded cooktop, or over an outdoor cooking fire. Two rivets connect the 11½” long handle to the deep bowl (which measures exactly one cup). It’s also a terrific ladle for cooking with woks. A hole in the handle lets you hang from a strap or hook. The curves in spun iron are formed by spinning a disc of iron on a lathe and forming it over a mold. The result is much lighter than cast iron (generally half the weight), but like cast iron it heats quickly and holds heat beautifully. Pre-seasoned with flax oil, it will season further the more you use it, eventually developing a virtually non-stick surface. Made in Shropshire, England.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Maker
We recently partnered with the Netherton Foundry to produce a select assortment of cookware exclusively for us here at Garrett Wade.
Black spun iron, one of the best cookware materials today, is an alternative to cast iron, which has historically been used in cookware. Spun iron is created by spinning discs of iron on lathes and then forming them over molds. It is superior to cast iron in one major way: It is a lot lighter than cast iron, usually 50% of the weight. You will no doubt appreciate this when you’re moving your rustic black iron cookware from your stove or oven to a countertop or tabletop.
