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.
Take a peek behind the scenes of this amazing process...
The high, rounded sides of a cooking wok create different heating zones; from intense conduction at the bottom to flame-singing at the top. Our Prospector-Handled Spun Iron Wok utilizes the thinner metal that is essential to wok cooking, and the curved base and walls that bring heat and flame high up the sides. This round-bottom wok also features a pair of riveted handles instead of a traditional version’s single handle, making it ideal for carrying or for oven use.Spun iron is formed by spinning a disc of hot iron on a lathe. The result is generally half the weight of cast iron. It heats quickly, holds heat beautifully, and is nearly indestructible, making it something you’ll want to pass down from generation to generation. 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. Measures 13 ½” Diameter x 4” Deep.If you're looking for flat bottom, long handled wok, click here. Also available is a matching spun iron lid for our Netherton woks and prospector pan.
