Different materials cook food in different ways. Cast iron heats up slowly but uniformly and stays hot for long periods. Because it distributes heat evenly across its surface, it’s ideal for cooking meats, fish and vegetables. It also gives you greater control over the cooking process, which is essential in a busy professional kitchen where you need to recreate the same meal over and over again. This is why chefs love cooking with cast iron.
It’s also why we stock a huge range of cast iron cookware, from cast iron pots and pans to skillets and sizzlers. If you want to cook meat perfectly every time, or create the perfect sear or char grill to your steaks, then cast iron is the way to go.
You can also use cast iron casserole dishes for slow-cooking meat, fish and vegetables. Cast iron is great for cooking stews, ragouts and tajines. The material heats up slowly and holds the heat, which means it’s also a good choice for oven to table food presentation. As heat is spread evenly around the dish, you can be sure everything will be cooked through, with no parts of the casserole left underdone.
As cast iron is so heavy duty, it lasts for long periods and is perfect for the rigours and demands of a professional kitchen. Our range of cast iron cookware includes skillets and gridle pans of all sizes, suitable for individual portions or high-volume cooking. Our casserole dishes come in various sizes, shapes and colours for table presentation. Plus, we stock a comprehensive selection of cast iron pots and pans for all kitchen cooking needs.
If you need to ensure perfect cooking every time, where consistency and flavour really matter, then cast iron is always the way to go.
