Heirloom Bakeware - Cast Iron That Will Last More Than a Lifetime

Our cast iron baking tinscould be shaping your family celebration cakes for generations. How wonderful would it be to pass on the tin that you made your daughter's first birthday cake in, for her to do the same? 


This bakeware has longevity not only because of the inherent qualities of the material, but also because of the re-seasoning process. This can be off putting, as it sounds laborious and time consuming. The reality is that it is quite simpleand the kind of job that almost 'does itself' so you can go potter in the garden, have a cuppa, and just check on your bakewaresprogress intermittently. 


Here are 10 reasons why we think this is a purchase that will last a lifetime - 

  1. Cast Iron Is just brilliant at retaining heat, for even baking around and underneath your bake.
  2. Cast iron heats evenly, ensuring that browning is consistent.
  3. The Bakeware can be used in very hot ovens for recipes that require a burst of heat, up to a whopping 300℃!
  4. They are solid, no springs to weaken, no loose base to go missing, no joins to come apart. 
  5. If re-seasonedregularly, they are naturally non-stick.
  6. The bakeware is responsibly made in the UK, using traditional methods to hand-spin the iron, by a family firm. 
  7. They are 100% recyclable, not that you'd need to any time soon, but it is reassuring to know that they are a low environmental impact purchase. 
  8. They are simply put, beautiful. 
  9. The bakeware is resilient, the cast iron is reassuringly strong and gains character and patina as it ages. 
  10. Every piece is handmade, so unique to you. Each item is part of a comprehensive collection, to accommodate all your baking needs.
