Well made pots and pans, tailored to your cooking styles and needs are preferred over one size fits all sets, and can be passed down for generations.  When it comes to cookware, there is definitely a proper pan for every purpose. Finding the perfect pan is as easy as knowing what you like to eat and exploring where you want to take your cooking.



Based in Rhode Island, Nest is a small cast iron company focused on craftsmanship and design. Each cast iron pan has a bronzy hue, and is double seasoned with flaxseed oil, which gives it a strong base of protection against rust and provides a naturally non-stick surface.



Finex is handcrafting cast iron in Portland, Oregon. Each pan is made by twelve hands and just about as many people, through a process of melting quality iron using temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees. With a distinctly modern design, the iron is polished to an easy release surface with ergonomic spring handles that stay cooler to the touch while cooking.



The only company producing Dutch Ovens in the Netherlands, Combekk crafts cast iron dutch ovens that tell the story of the railways. Each piece is fully enameled made entirely from recycled materials with a tough and functional design of the highest quality.
