Shropshire made, black iron Egg Spoon, a flat handy ladle.
The cathartic way to cook a single egg over flames.
One of the great things about running Netherton Foundry is that we get to meet creative people who inspire us to make interesting items.
In this case Ishita wanted an Egg Spoon, a simple way of cooking an egg over an open fire, gas burner or hob.
Well, we thought this was a crazy idea.....so we made her one!
If you want to stare into the flames of an open fire whilst preparing satisfiying simple comfort food, we can make you one too.
Based in Bristol, Ishita is the co-founder of the Vela Indian brunch pop ups, have a look at some of her work on Instagram @withmustard_uk

What’s special about OUR spun black iron pans?
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.
