Why choose a pre-seasoned bakeware ?
The edible Sussex flax oil coating is easy to wash & naturally non-stick.
It is ready for immediate use.
No chemicals or PTFE are used in the coating of this bakeware.
Coating can be simply restored at home, time after time.
Why use a iron bakeware?
Iron cookware is tough and can be used at very high temperatures.
This iron cookware is suitable for all types of ovens.
Iron is a pure, simple metal which is easy to look after & very recyclable.
What’s special about OUR spun black iron pans and bakeware?
Serious cooks and professional chefs love the way that black iron pans heat evenly and give great cooking performance.
The more you use your pan the better it gets as the seasoned patina develops.
A couple of handy tips:
- If you are cooking meat or fish - oil the food, not the pan
- Be patient; allow the food to cook before trying to turn it over.
- Don't fry food straight from the fridge, allow it to come up to room temperature.
The pan bodies are spun by hand, so each one is slightly different. They will not all be as flat as a billiard table.
If you do want to keep it as flat as you can, then follow these simple guidelines.
If your pan has oak handles, the grain on every piece is unique and each one is branded by hand. They are like fingerprints, no two are identical.
Love your pan and follow our instructions for re-seasoning. Oven seasoning is kinder to the pan than hob top seasoning and it also give a nicer looking finish.
We suggest that you only use hob top seasoning, if your oven is too small for your pan or you are re-seasoning your wok.
Your pan will develop with use and, if cared for, will age beautifully and be a friend for life.
Lots of copies, none better. If it doesn't say Netherton Foundry on the lid, it's not one of ours.
Spun iron 7 pint (4 litre) bowl and lid for use on Netherton slow cookers, kitchen companions and for all hob top cooking.
We take our inspiration from the Shropshire ironmasters of the eighteenth century and refine our designs to meet the rigours of 21st century life.
Our large, deep spun dishes are made by the same metal spinning process as our famous frying pans and saucepans.
The bowl is made by skilled British craftsmen from 5/32'' (4 mm) black iron to create a traditional, solid iron pot.
It has a smooth, flat base, which means that it heats up evenly on all types of stove hobs..
It's suitable for: range, gas, electric, ceramic, halogen and induction hobs. Always heat slowly from cold to prevent buckling.
As it's made from iron you can also take it outdoors and cook at high tempertatures on flames, embers and barbeques.
Heavy duty spun iron is thermal shock and crack resistant, making it ideal for powerful induction hobs.
The classic Netherton Foundry branding is cut into the substantial spun iron lid, this is accented in solid brass.
The lid knob is turned from British oak and is not oven safe.
Aternatively if you like the look of oak knob, you can add an Oven Safe Cast Knob
just when needed.
We add our signature pre-seasoned flax oil finish to the bowl and lid, just like our frying pans.
The distinctive texture ensures bonding of the flax oil to the iron. With use, the seasoned finish becomes smoother and develops a glossy patina.
If worn or damaged, the coating can simply be restored at home, time after time.
