Next Wave Cookware from a UK Entrepreneur

September 17, 2015

Founded by food writer Charmain Ponnuthurai (she’s behind the London on a Plate guidebook app), Crane Cookware is a just-launched cast ironware collection for the style-minded home cook. The idea came about when Charmain found herself chatting with British product designer Barnaby Tuke about the lack of “serious competitors to French companies like Le Creuset and Staub.” The upshot is Crane Cookware, a modernized version of classic vitreous enamel cookware, manufactured in Picardie, France, in a foundry established in 1840. Barnaby, who studied at the Royal College of Art, designed the smart-looking set of five pieces with ergonomically designed handles that make carrying the heavy cookware from stove to table less arduous. 

Above: The line on display (table and chairs by Very Good & Proper).

Above (L to R): The Saute Pan is £110 ($171). The Casserole is £135 ($210). In the US, the line is available at Shed in Healdsburg; contact the shop directly for ordering information.

Above: The Griddle Pan is £58 ($90).

Above: The Frying Pan is £85 ($132).

N.B.: During the upcoming London Design Festival, from the 22nd to the 24th of September, Lyle’s Restaurant will host one-off dinners “celebrating the intersection of food and design,” serving food prepared and presented in Crane Cookware. Go to Lyle’s for booking information.
