One of a cook’s most important assets when searing a steak? An excellent cast-iron pan. These beauties are sturdy and will stand the test of time. 

Ready to Travel

Lighter than most cast-iron skillets, Field Company‘s Skillet No. 8 is ideal to take along for camping or outdoor grilling. Its straight sides also give it an edge for baking cornbread and other rustic goods.

A Stovetop Stunner

Design reigns supreme with Finex‘s uber-heavy skillet that’s designed and made in Portland. Its heft gives it the ability to reach screaming-hot temperatures on the stovetop, just right for a perfect sear.

Rough and ready to accompany you on a rugged camping trip (or do heavy-duty jobs on the stove), Barebones‘ cast-iron pans are designed in Salt Lake City.
