Seeing Cast Iron Skillets Get Made Makes Me Want to Cook

By Casey Chan on at

Cineastas spent some time with Mike Whitehead and Finex Cast Iron Cookware Co. to give a glimpse of how Finex is trying to reinvent something that has existed for thousands of years: cast iron. I love the slow and considered process that goes into each skillet. And I love to imagine the delicious food that will be inside them.

If you're wondering why the cast iron skillet is octagonal, Finex says that the shape "gives you 6 different directions to pour from when cooking on a crowded stove top." The handle is made with stainless steal and is supposed to help dissipate heat. It all might be overkill for making a cast iron skillet but it's sure fun to watch.
