Factory Seconds have small scratches, dings, or other cosmetic imperfections, but they cook just as well as our "firsts," and will last just as long (that is, forever).
Decades ago, round griddles were a staple of every cast iron cookware manufacturer's catalog, and it's easy to see why: a super-light griddle is easy to fire up in the morning, and a round, single-burner design fits on any stovetop. We made a lighter, smoother 10 ½" griddle in the same style. It works on all kinds of burners—electric and induction included—and rewards time & use.
Field Skillets follow vintage sizing conventions, and the same goes for our first Field Griddle. The No.9 Round Griddle is slightly wider than the No.8 Skillet, both on the cooking surface and from edge to edge:
- 10 ½" diameter
- 9" cooking surface
- 4 lb total weight
- 16 ⅜" total length (includes handle)
- ½" edge
Well-seasoned cast iron cookware achieves a natural non-stick surface without harmful chemicals or engineered coatings. Your griddle will arrive pre-seasoned, so it’s ready to cook right away.
Cast iron gets hot and stays hot, making it the best material for stovetop cooking, for everything from pancakes to steaks.
Field cast iron cookware is compatible with all stovetop burner types, including glass and ceramic induction ranges.
Field Cast Iron is 100% Made in the USA. We work with recycled iron sourced from American vendors, and pour our cast iron cookware using green sand castings—just like the most celebrated vintage cast iron manufacturers, Griswold and Wagner.
Our naturally non-stick cooking surface comes from multiple coats of grapeseed oil pre-seasoning. No teflon, no dirty tricks.
Like all great tools, cast iron cookware gets better with time and use.
To keep your Field Griddle in top condition:
- Pre-heat on low for up to 5 minutes before you start cooking. (And always start with a test pancake!)
- Use acidic ingredients sparingly.
- Clean according the Field Method for Cast Iron Care & Maintenance .
- Hand-wash only. Never in the dishwasher.
- Towel dry or heat to dry on the stovetop. Never drip-dry or store wet.
Most importantly, cook often!
