“Every man should own a cast iron skillet.”
–Ben Franklin, probably. Because Ben Franklin was smart and every smart man knows that statement to be true.
With a cast iron skillet you can cook pretty much anything. And once it’s seasoned — whether by intention or through sheer volume of use — every meal you make in it will naturally take on the flavor of all that has preceded it.
Which cast iron skillet should you buy, though? The Field Skillet, an ultralight cast iron pan designed for daily use that improves every time meat and metal meet flame.
The Field Skillet is lighter than a 13" MacBook Pros, non-stick, machined and polished like vintage pans of yesteryear and comes fully seasoned. The pans are also made from 75-90% recycled iron in the USA and guaranteed for life.

“After more than 2,000 years of use, cast iron cookware transcends style or fad — it's equally handsome and unassuming in a sleek urban loft or a rustic farmhouse,” according to the designers.
Initial production runs of the pans slated for delivery in April and June already sold out on Kickstarter, but there are still options available for July delivery dates starting at $90.
The Fourth of July could be a great time to start cooking with your next family heirloom.
And if you need a good recipe, look no further.
