Vintage Cast Iron

• 28 October 2009

I love to cook with cast iron pans. Love, love, love. They are wonderful for sauteing, roasting, baking, etc. I use at least one of my two vintage cast iron pans daily if you can believe it. If you don't own one, I highly recommend getting your hands on one quite soon. They are available, brand new, at places like Sur La Table but we prefer the vintage ones in our home. There is something about cooking with an old, seasoned, been-through-it-all kind of pan. As an added bonus they are quite affordable.

Here are a few of my favorites for sale on Etsy and Ebay right now. The prized Descoware pieces are particularly intriguing. Did you know Julia Child preferred to use these well-made pans from Belgium? I can only imagine how fun it would be to own one of these well-priced vintage versions from Europe. It makes me want to have a white kitchen with an entire wall of vintage cast iron pans in all different colors. You'll see what I mean in just a minute...

on Etsy:

Descoware Flame Red Casserole Dish + Lid

Deck of Cards Pan (perfect for a game night!)

Classic Cast Iron Skillet

Pair of Red + Yellow Skillets

on Ebay:

Vintage Le Creuset Turquoise Pan

Autumn Leaves Muffin Pan

Red + Blue Skillet

Pale Green + Blue Skillet

Flower Muffin Pan

I love my le creuset pots and pans, they're not vintage though! Left over from my williams-sonoma days. I love the vintage one in the picture, a white wall with all of the colors would be amazing!

AHHH...maybe I am clueless, but I have a Le Creuset pan and I love it, but have used soap multiple times and have noticed the finish isn't the same...but I swear the instructions didn't say anything about it!!! Have I ruined it forever? No more soap from hear on out. Thanks for the tips!

A Le Creuset pot is currently on my wishlist! I would love a blue one.
