  • Field Cast Iron is 100% Made in the USA. We work with recycled iron and pour our cast iron cookware using green sand castings—just like the most celebrated vintage cast iron manufacturers, Griswold and Wagner. 

  • PFOA and PFTE Free. A well-seasoned cast iron pan achieves a natural non-stick surface without harmful chemicals or engineered coatings. Your skillet will arrive pre-seasoned with three coats of organic grapeseed oil, so it’s ready to cook right away.

  • 10 ¼" top diameter
  • 8 ¾" cooking surface
  • 4.5 lb total weight

Field Skillets match traditional vintage sizing conventions, where the “number” corresponds not to diameter in inches, but to the burner ring size on an old-fashioned wood-burning stove. That means a No.8 skillet is actually larger than 8 inches. (It’s tricky, we know.)

Field cast iron cookware is compatible with all stovetop burner types, including glass and ceramic induction ranges. Like all great tools, cast iron cookware gets better with time and use. To keep your Field Skillet in top condition:

  • Pre-heat on low for up to 5 minutes before you start cooking.

  • Clean according the Field Method for Cast Iron Care & Maintenance

  • Hand-wash only. Never in the dishwasher.

  • Towel dry and warm on the stovetop to evaporate moisture. Never drip-dry or store wet.

Most importantly, cook often!

How is smoother cast iron different?

Expand

Vintage cast iron pans, the type prized for their smooth nonstick surfaces, used to be finished by hand. Today, most manufacturers produce rough, pebbly skillets to save cost. That's not all bad—it just takes longer to build a shiny and truly nonstick seasoning.

Field Skillets use a machining process modeled on the best of vintage cookware, precisely dialed in to be as smooth as possible while leaving just a touch of texture on the cooking surface to hold a great seasoning.

Does Field cast iron come pre-seasoned?

Expand

Yes! We deliver a pan that is ready to cook out of the box with a great cooking experience. Our naturally non-stick cooking surface comes from three coats of grapeseed oil preseasoning. No teflon, no dirty tricks.

Like all cast iron pans, you will see the non-stick properties increase even more over time as you follow the tried and true seasoning rule: Just Keep Cooking!

Do Field skillets work on induction & electric stoves?

Expand

They do! We have a clever feature on all Field Company skillets—a heat ring! This is one of our favorite features: it’s both a reference to cookware conventions in a bygone era, and a clever way to meet the performance challenges of contemporary kitchens.

Our heat ring is designed to make sure the Field Skillet remains balanced as it heats up on glass or ceramic flat cooktops. At just 0.04” of clearance, it won’t interfere with cooking performance or lose any power from electric or induction heat elements, particularly since induction is activated through magnetics and iron is a magnetic element.

Isn't cast iron supposed to be heavy?

Expand

Field Skillets aren’t as light as throwaway nonstick cookware, but neither are they unnecessarily heavy. We spent years studying our favorite vintage skillets to find the perfect balance between lightness while maintaining enough bottom thickness for high heat searing and even cooking.

Our research found the Goldilocks zone to be 4.3 to 4.5 lbs for a 10 inch skillet. Anything above this zone only makes your pan harder to maneuver without adding cooking performance and anything below makes the pan more susceptible to warping or breakage. This weight is most similar to a Griswold skillet, one of our favorite antiques.

    What type of stovetop do you primarily use with your cast iron?? Electric Glass

    Nice pan

    I really like my new pan. I use it on my electric glass top stove. I only clean it with water and the brush that came with it, I treat it after every use with the oil, and I have not had much problems with food sticking to it. It is easy to clean and I highly recommend this cast iron No. 8 pan.

    Exceeds All Expectations

    This is truly a great find. Bottom line, I have nothing but good things to say about it. I love this pan, and find myself looking for reasons to cook in it.

    I’ve had this for a little over a month, and have, as a direct result, had the happy privilege of tossing out my old flaking nonstick pans, because there is simply no need for them anymore.

    We use the #8 for a lot of our cooking at this point—eggs, steak, grilled cheese, vegetables, bacon, French toast, pancakes, hamburgers—and absolutely nothing has stuck. It was a revelation seeing a fried egg slide around the pan the first time I cooked one.

    (I know Field says you can maybe later use it on tomato based stuff, but I don’t really want to risk my seasoning on that, and will just continue to use enameled cast iron for now just to be conservative.)

    The seasoning oil is expensive, but actually pretty convenient to work with, and smells nice. After a (very short) learning curve, I feel pretty good about my maintenance routine with dawn (I’m gonna use soap), brush, chain mail, and seasoning oil. I will probably buy it again when I run out.

    I’ve probably been a bit rough on the pan in places (as you can see from the picture), but it hasn’t had any effect on the nonstick or cooking quality. Helps me feel confident when using it, as I’m certainly not a professional and am not used to taking care of non-enameled cast iron.

    The lack of a pour spout was a small concern going in but has been a non-factor in practice, it…

    Lovely and light!

    I love the weight of it and I really appreciate the fantastic customer service. I would definitely recommend this product and I will probably end up getting some other products from Field Company.
