The Smithey Starter is an essential kitchen combination of two cast iron skillets, the No. 8 and the No. 12, providing the perfect cooking solution for both everyday meals and larger gatherings. Like all Smithey’s, when seasoned they are naturally non-stick and free of chemical coatings. Inspired by vintage cast iron and crafted by hand and machine, we believe it’s the best cast-iron skillet on the market. Use it well.
Our 8" skillet is designed to be a daily cooking companion. The smaller shape and curved interior sides promote movement and flipping, while the longer handle keeps your hands farther away from heat. Ideal for sides, smaller meats, and the perfect fried egg, this skillet has a natural place beside its bigger siblings on the range.
Our 12" skillet is destined to be your family heirloom. The No. 12 is perfect for pan-frying chicken, searing steaks on the range, roasting game and vegetables in the oven, even baking biscuits. A daily companion in the kitchen for families or the perfect tool for entertaining.
