A Modern Version of the Classic Cast Iron Frying Pan That’s Lighter Than a 13″ MacBook Pro

Brothers Stephen and Chris Muscarella have created the Field Skillet, a smoother, lighter version of the beloved classic cast iron frying pan that reside in kitchens around the world.

The Field Skillet is a meticulously designed smoother, lighter cast iron pan reminiscent of the best vintage American skillets—but with a modern twist. This is your new everyday pan and it will get continuously better the more you use it. …Cast iron is prized for its heat retention, which is proportional to its weight. Heft is a key feature of a great pan, but beyond 5 lb makes it a chore to use. We chose a weight you’d be comfortable reaching for every day, without compromising performance. The Field Skillet is lighter than a 13″ MacBook Pro.

The brothers are currently raising funds through Kickstarter in order to bring the Field Skillet to the retail market.
