Charleston, South Carolina—aka the “low country”—is a hotbed for some of the best Southern-style cooking in the states, and also serves as home to the Smithey workshop where each skillet is crafted by hand. Their collection features skillets of all shapes and sizes, with a unique purpose that will turn you from Chef Boyardee into Bobby Flay. Perfect for pan-frying chicken, searing steaks on the range, roasting game and vegetables in the oven, or even baking biscuits, the No. 12 is designed for tougher tasks that require a little more real estate. To earn the Smithey Ironware stamp under the skillet is no easy task, which is why these American-made kitchen beasts come with a lifetime warranty.
