Why A Smithey?

GLASSY SMOOTH SURFACE

A Smithey’s surface is glassy smooth, similar to vintage cast iron cookware manufactured over 100 years ago. No corner cutting at Smithey, so you won’t find the granular, rough, sandpaper-like surface you may have experienced with other modern cast iron. By hand and machine, we have reinvented a method of polishing your cookware so that you enjoy a natural non-stick surface out-of-the-box. A Smithey’s surface is not only a delight to cook on, it is a handsome addition to your range. A touch of oil & over easy fried eggs are graceful again.

EASY TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN

Cast-iron has a reputation for being troublesome to clean, but thanks to Smithey’s polished surface, nothing more than a light scrub under warm water will do. Simply dry the piece thoroughly, apply a light layer of oil, and enjoy your heirloom over a few more generations.

BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP

We’re so proud of this one, we cast it into the underside of each piece that leaves our shop. Each and every Smithey is manufactured in the USA - design, casting, polishing, finishing, and packaging. Our company’s home base is Charleston, SC, a city celebrated as much for its architectural excellence as its vibrant food culture. We like to think that the foundations that make Charleston a renowned city have found their way into the design of our cookware.

A PERFECT UNION

Bone-in ribeyes, fried eggs & bacon, pan-seared fish, crepes, frittatas, or cornbread; a proper cast-iron skillet can handle them all. Each Smithey was built from the ground up under the creed of versatility, aesthetic style, and utility. Pour spouts, proper wall angles, hanging hooks, and enough weight to sear with authority, but not so much heft that you can’t pick it up. Whether you’re entertaining the neighbors or in the wilderness over a campfire, your Smithey was made to create warm memories.

WHETHER YOU’RE ENTERTAINING THE NEIGHBORS OR IN THE WILDERNESS OVER A CAMPFIRE, YOUR SMITHEY WAS MADE TO CREATE MEMORABLE MEALS.

RETAINS AND EMITS

A Smithey will retain and emit heat in a way that most cookware will not. Because it retains heat so well, it requires less energy to maintain a desired temperature. When you sear a piece of meat on a Smithey, you will not experience the heat loss that you otherwise would with a narrow-walled, low-mass skillet. The effect is that when a Smithey is “at temperature” and you place food on it’s surface - it hits back. Serious pan roasting and searing only...

TIMELESS

Sad as it sounds, with a bit of simple care, your Smithey is destined to outlive you. Whether you keep your Smithey over your lifetime or give it to a friend or family member, a Smithey is made to last forever. A small investment when you think about it...
