It’s Time to Ditch Your (Supposedly) Nonstick Pans : Bee Wilson, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Bee Wilson, deservedly named as Fortnum and Mason Food Writer of the Year 2023, is a British food writer, journalist and the author of seven books on food-related subjects as well as a campaigner for food education through the charity TastEd.
She also writes the 'Table Talk' column for The Wall Street Journal and it is in her most recent article that you will find the following unarguable statements:
”The beauty of cast iron (and spun iron, which I prefer because it is lighter) is that instead of getting worse with each use, it gets better…….. I know the idea of “seasoning a pan” sounds strange and complicated, but it isn’t. All it really means is heating the pan with a little oil or fat.
The beauty is that—unlike with modern nonstick—a seasoned pan only gets more seasoned over time.” 12th May 2023
Whilst we cannot be 100% sure, we like to assume that when Bee talks about her preference for spun iron pans, she is talking about us. We are social media friends after all!
So if you want to know where to buy a hand made, preseasoned spun iron, or even tin-lined, spun copper pan, then look no further. We are the proud makers of a gorgeous range of spun cookware, which we supply worldwide from our rural, Shropshire workshops.
Available at stockists both in the UK and the USA, and also on our website, from where we can deliver direct to your doorstep.
Bee’s new book, The Secret of Cooking will be available in the UK on August 31st and in the USA on September 26th and can be pre-ordered from your favourite store. Pre-order on Amazon UK here. Pre-order on Amazon USA here.
