About Smithey Ironware

After years of studying collector’s books and bird-dogging rusty old pieces to restore to their 1890’s 19th century glory, the founder decided to try his hand at creating and sharing a cast iron cookware line that honored the classic style of vintage pieces, but also harnessed modern technology and processes.

From there, he partnered with a Charleston blacksmith to expand the line into carbon steel cookware, each piece hand-forged and visually unique to create something beautiful and functional, meant to last generations. 

Seasoning Your Skillet

1. Apply a light sheen of vegetable oil to your Smithey's surface with a paper towel

2. Bring to scorching temperature until the oil begins to smoke (fan on)

3. Rub a second, light sheen of vegetable oil on the smoking pan with a paper towel

4. The skillet will turn a dark color. Turn the heat off, and allow it to cool down. 

Long-Term Care

We recommend a light wash with warm water to clean your Smithey. If food remnants are stubborn, a soft scrape with a metal spatula, or a touch of dish soap and a nylon scouring pad will work. Avoid heavy-pressure scrubbing. It is important to thoroughly dry your Smithey after each use. Then apply a light layer of vegetable oil and store on your range. We like to place over a burner for a few minutes to ensure it is dry. Don’t put your Smithey in the dishwasher or soak in water.
