Cast Iron skillets were the predominant cookware in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Cooks prefer cast iron because it holds temperatures longer and produces a desirable sear on foods.
As expected, many companies produce these skillets off shore….primarily because of cost.
Marquette castings in Royal Oak Michigan manufactures quality cast iron cookware using the investment casting process. Investment casting….which has been used across diverse industries for cast-iron parts….yields skillets that are much closer to the original cast-iron process.
A good benefit: The warranty extends from the date of purchase through the lifetime of the product.
While made in Michigan (Marquette being synonymous with iron) is a nice touch…..the ultimate test is product quality and value in the marketplace.
