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 casseroles 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 casserole 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.
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 cast iron.
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.
Cook casseroles and stews in this spun iron casserole.
Remove the lid for crumbles and puddings.
It's also perfect for baking bread. Ideal for risottos, curries, soups etc.
As it's made from iron you can also take it outdoors and cook at high temperatures on flames, embers and barbeques.
