Stargazer Cast Iron was founded in 2015 by three old friends with a shared vision: creating the best cast iron cookware around.
It started with an obsession. As a professional designer and hobby cook, I've always enjoyed cooking with the best cookware available. When I went searching for the perfect cast iron skillet, I came up empty-handed. Dissatisfied with the options on the market, I turned to vintage cookware to find the quality I was looking for. After nearly a year of collecting, restoring, and cooking with vintage cast iron, I saw the untapped potential and decided it was time for something new. I created a unique cast iron skillet from the ground up: reimagined, redesigned, and revitalized. I enlisted the help of two friends to bring my vision to life and Stargazer Cast Iron was born.
Our cookware is made using the same proven materials and manufacturing processes that were used over one hundred years ago, now aided by CNC machining for unrivaled precision. Our designs are practical and our quality is second to none. We believe we have created the finest cast iron skillet available today, or anytime for that matter.
What makes our skillet special? Here are a few notable design improvements:
- Smooth cooking surface. The entire interior of our skillet is machined to a smooth finish. That means food sticks less and it’s a breeze to clean.
- Lightweight. One pound lighter than the competition.
- Drip-free pouring. No more pour spouts. Pour from anywhere with our drip-free flared rim.
- Stay-cool handle. Our forked handle allows air circulation to keep it cool longer.
We offer our cookware in two finishes: bare and seasoned. Our bare skillet will arrive coated with oil and bagged to protect it from the elements. Just wash it and season it however you like. Our seasoned skillet has been seasoned by hand and will arrive ready to go, right out of the box.
Help us grow our business by contributing to our campaign, and more importantly, please let us know what cookware you'd like us to offer next. A bigger skillet? A grill pan? A wok? The possibilities are endless. Connect with us on your favorite social media platform:
