Finex Cast Iron: Designed to be Delicious

Finex cast iron
Your grandparents knew the value of cooking with cast iron cookware. The trend might have faded when Teflon came out, but cast iron is cool again and now a Portland company has put a brand new spin on the time-honored classic.

Mike Whitehead’s Finex Company creates handcrafted, heirloom-quality cast iron skillets. They are octagonal in shape and feature six pouring spouts, a quick-cooling wire-spring handle and a smooth CNC-machined interior.

Once he accomplished his vision, he took his company plan to Kickstarter and found overwhelming support. The campaign ended on November 17, 2013 with 1,558 backers pledging $211,028.

Since that time, the company has moved into a production facility and now churns out beautifully handcrafted skillets, lids, and trivets. Prices range from $125 for the 8-inch cast iron skillet to $270 for the 12-inch cast iron set to $225 for the 12-inch cast iron twin spring grill pan.
