Just like Alice Water's Egg Spoon that is perfectly made to cook one egg over an open fire or hot coals, this version from Netherton Foundry was created for a UK-based food blogger and one-half of the Indian Brunch Pop-Up Vela. It can cook an egg over a fire or open hob but it's also wonderful for stirring, adding and removing food from woks, frying pans, saucepans and casseroles. It's a useful tool for all cooks as it's safe to use at oven and at frying temperatures. 

Heavy duty spun iron bowl with black iron handle.

The durable 99.1% pure iron is pre-seasoned with organic flax oil for a natural non-stick finish & easy to clean.

Hand made and assembled with two solid iron rivets.

Suitable for high temperatures, resists warping & buckling.

Highlighted with two Netherton brand brass rivets.

Why choose seasoned spun iron?
No chemicals or PTFE are used in the coating of our iron cookware.
The edible Sussex organic flax oil coating is easy to wash & naturally non-stick. It is ready for immediate use. 
The coating can be simply restored at home, time after time.
Iron is a pure, simple metal which is easy to look after & very recyclable.
What is special about Netherton Foundry's Spun Iron Pans? 
Serious cooks and professional chefs love the way that black iron pans heat evenly and give great cooking performance.
The more you use your pan the better it gets as the seasoned patina develops.
A couple of handy tips:
  •  If you are cooking meat or fish -  oil the food, not the pan
  •  Be patient; allow the food to cook before trying to turn it over. 
  •  Don't fry food straight from the fridge, allow it to come up to room temperature. 
The pan bodies are spun by hand, so each one is slightly different.  They will not all be as flat as a billiard table.
If you do want to keep it as flat as you can, then follow these simple guidelines.
  • Every time you use the pan, heat it SLOWLY to frying temperature, then you can use full power.
    This is especially important if you are using powerful cooking hobs such as induction.
  • Use a hob the same size as the pan base, small rings WILL warp big pans.
  •  Never drop a hot pan into cold water. This will buckle it.
If your pan has oak handles, the grain on every piece is unique and each one is branded by hand. They are like fingerprints, no two are identical.
Love your pan and follow our instructions for re-seasoning. Oven seasoning is kinder to the pan than hob top seasoning and it also give a nicer looking finish. 
We suggest that you only use hob top seasoning, if your oven is too small for your pan or you are re-seasoning your wok.
Your pan will develop with use and, if cared for,  will age beautifully and be a friend for life.

Netherton Foundry is a family owned business located in South Shropshire. They sit right in the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. This was the 18th Century's "Silicon Valley". Today the heavy iron and coal industries are all but a distant memory and, for the most part, this corner of rural England has returned to a much quieter way of life. Netherton Foundry has been inspired by the 18th and 19th centuries' Shropshire Iron masters and wish to look again at the values that inspired this amazing period of creativity and energy. Whenever possible, materials are sourced as locally as possible and they strive to work with local artisans.
