Netherton Spun Iron “Prospector” Cooking Pan

The Prospector Pan That Lasts a Lifetime

The “spun'' in this spun iron pan is formed by spinning a disc of iron on a lathe and forming it over a mold. “Prospector” refers to its overall shape, including the two sturdy handles that are riveted to the pan that is reminiscent of a prospector’s gold pan. This gorgeous, matte-black pan has similar properties to cast iron: it heats up evenly and will hence cook and bake evenly as well. Much like cast iron, it is also nearly indestructible and is sure to last a lifetime, with minimal routine care required. You’ll want to pass this down to the next generation of cooks.

However, this spun iron prospector pan has one key advantage over cast-iron ones: it is much lighter at generally half the weight, which you’ll appreciate as you move it from stove-top, to oven, to tabletop. If you’re a fan of spun iron, take a look at our spun iron baking sheet as well as our spun iron loaf pan.

The prospector pan also makes a lovely presentation dish for a quiche, fruit pie, or cobbler. You could also simply use it to make your eggs and hash in — it’s up to you. Pre-seasoned with flax oil to give a natural, no-stick coating. Works on all ranges of ovens, whether gas, electric, convection, or even wood-burning. It was made by a small foundry in Shropshire, UK, which is where the Industrial Revolution started. It is 12” diameter x 1-½” deep. The prospector pan is also available in a long-handled version.

See Below From A Recent Trip To The Netherton Foundry

We recently partnered with the Netherton Foundry in the UK 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.
