Spun Iron “Prospector” Cooking Pan


The “spun” in spun-iron is formed by spinning a disc of iron on a lathe and forming it over a mold.  The “Prospector” refers to overall shape.  The two sturdy handles are riveted to the pan, insuring they stay connected forever.  This gorgeous, matte-black fry pan has similar properties to cast iron: it heats up evenly therefore it will cook and bake evenly; and it is nearly indestructible so it will last a lifetime, with minimal routine care (you’ll want to pass this down to the next generation).  Spun-iron has one advantage over cast-iron: it is much lighter (generally half the weight), which you’ll appreciate as you move from stove-top, to oven, to table top.  The Prospector makes a wonderful presentation dish for a quiche, fruit pie, or cobbler; or, simply make your eggs and hash in it.  Pre-seasoned with flax oil to give a natural, no-stick coating.  Works on all range and oven types, whether gas, electric, convection, even wood-burning.
