Design Sleuth: Cast Iron Cookware from Lodge

January 18, 2011

Spotted in Eva and Gentry Dayton's Brooklyn kitchen: cast iron cookware from Lodge, a company located in the hills of Tennessee that began making cookware during the first presidential term of William McKinley. Lodge remains a family-owned, family-operated business and continues to produce a wide range of cast iron goods, including classic cookware favored by chefs everywhere (see Mark Bittman's piece in the NY Times, "Ever So Humble, Cast Iron Outshines the Fancy Pans").

According to Bittman, the virtues of cast iron are many: it's dramatically less expensive than stainless or copper; it's nearly as nonstick as any manufactured nonstick surface; it's an even distributor of heat and can move from stove top to oven; and it's easy to season (coat the interior with oil and put it in the oven for an hour).
