    Well, the world can change in three generations.

    Think about it.

    100 years ago our choice of cars was limited to one. Doctors prescribed Heroin, Mercury and Leeches. Penicillin wouldn’t be discovered for another four years. Movies were silent, women had just been given the right to vote, child labor was cool with people, indoor toilets were just catching on, and we had collectively promised ourselves that one world war was more than enough.

    There were nearly six billion less people on the planet and approximately 500 more species of animal. Nobody who wasn’t falling had ever travelled over about 30km per hour. And, outside of a game of hide-and-seek, not many people would have ever asked the question, “Where are you?”

    But one of the biggest changes over the last century is how we consume. We bought less stuff and the stuff we did buy we cared for and usually handed on. It made sense financially. And, in hindsight, environmentally.

    This generation will be the one who creates the step change. Wiser for some pretty big mistakes, we’ll keep the good change from the last century, lose the bad, and leave the world in a better place for our children’s children.

    New ideas are arriving and old ideas are being resurrected. Find them. Encourage them. Share them. At Ironclad we are working to re-introduce the idea of generational shopping. Or, shopping well and buying once. Or, buying mindfully. We are not going to save the planet, but a significant shift in how people shop globally actually might.

    And our mission seems to be catching on.

    If the change experienced over the last three generations is anything to go by, the world in 100 years will be absolutely amazing.
      All Ironclad cookware is poured at the foundry to order, so we aim to deliver within 7-10 working days.

    Three Generation Guarantee®

    Handmade to be handed down

    Delivered within 7-10 days

    The last pan you'll ever buy. Guaranteed.

    Many have followed, but none match the craft and quality of the Legacy Pan.

    Handmade to be handed down, the Legacy is PFAS, PFOA, and PTFE free and made with all natural, 100% recycled iron. So nothing is taken from the ground to make them.

    The Legacy works on any cooking surface, from induction to campfire, and comes with the world’s longest product warranty of 100 years. That is approximately 50 non-stick pans. Or three generations of daily use. In fact, it comes with Ironclad’s trademark Three Generation Guarantee® cast into the base.

    It arrives unseasoned, so you can make it your own from the start. Don't worry, ‘seasoning’ is just a fancy way of saying ‘wash, oil and heat your pan before use’. We also include simple step by step instructions. 

    Seasoning oil is a personal choice. You can use your favourite high smoke point oil, or grab some of our Homemade Conditioning Balm.

    Each Legacy comes with its own lifetime account to the Recipe Vault®. A closed digital platform to protect secret family recipes, collate personal favourites, and document the meals your Legacy will prepare for generations to come.

    To make cookware that will last more than a century of use, we returned to techniques used to make some of the most beautiful antique cast iron in circulation today. It takes a little longer, but it lasts a lot longer.

    PRODUCT

    Making products ethically costs more. Our cast iron is handmade by people who are paid a living wage. We also test every pour, so you won't end up with stuff like lead in your food. Guaranteed. We aren't trying to compete with the discount skillets made in anonymous overseas factories. We make products that we personally guarantee for 100 years. While we aren't the cheapest, we are the best value.

    A regular, chemically-coated pan will cost on average $40, and is thrown away every 18 months. An Ironclad Pan costs from $199, and will never be thrown away. Three generations of daily use, guaranteed. Adjust for your currency, the maths is the same. Good for you, good for your wallet.

    There are four types of cast iron, but only one you want on your food. 

    1. Malleable Cast Iron is used for electrical fittings, mining equipment and machine parts. Nope. 

    2. Ductile Cast Iron is a popular choice for crankshafts, gears, heavy duty suspensions and brakes. Nope. 

    3. White Cast Iron is used for its wear resistant properties in pump housings, mill linings and rods, crushers and brake shoes. Nope. 

    4. Grey Cast iron is ideal for cookware. That’s the one. 

    There are no food standards in NZ or AU (yet) for the quality of iron used in cast iron cookware. This means that some companies use the cheap stuff just because they think nobody is watching. If you have any questions about the material used in your cookware, ask the manufacturer. They have a duty of care to answer you.

    Absolutely it will. Cast iron will work on any cooking surface; BBQ, open fire, induction, gas, electric solid plate or electric radiant ring, vitro-ceramic glass, gas oven, wood oven, or cycle powered ovens.

    SEASONING & CARE

    Your Ironclad comes fresh from our foundry as a raw, untreated high quality iron. The iron will be a lighter grey prior to pre-seasoning. With every oil and use it will get darker and darker and more non-stick. When it arrives you might even have a grey residue on the surface. This is normal. It just needs a scrub with soapy water, an oil, and a bake. We currently only offer pre-seasoning on our Heirloom Legacy Pans.

    How you season your pan is as personal as your diet. Some people use grape seed oil. Others use duck fat or vegetable oil or olive oil. It’s up to you. Unseasoned iron gives you the opportunity to flavour your skillet your way. We provide a seasoning balm that we recommend. Whatever you use, use the bare minimum and choose something that's food grade with a high smoke point.

    Newly seasoned cast iron may have a brownish tint to it. It’s not rust, it’s just the initial patina baking in. It can take a few coats of seasoning and some use to get a black finish. Don’t worry about the brownish colour - go right ahead and use the pan. We recommend starting with caramelising onions. Eventually it will go black with use.

    If your pan is sticky it means you either haven’t cooked it for long enough or you’ve used too much oil. Or both. You can remedy this by repeating the seasoning and using less balm. You really only need a tiny amount. We like to cover the pan entirely and then rub it all off. Another easy way to start over is to put your skillet in the oven and set the oven to “clean”. This will burn away all oil and leave the iron a lovely blue/black.

    Uh oh. You left it to drip dry? Not to worry. Any rust that you find is only the smallest possible surface rust. Think micro-millimeters. That surface rust can be scrubbed off with soap and steel wool, or an oiled cloth, or by putting your pan into the oven for a cleaning cycle. If you find rust, don’t worry. Just go back to the initial pre-seasoning instructions and start over. Check out our TIPS or contact us. We’re always happy to help out.

    RETURNS

    Glad you asked. Ironclad Pan Co. offers the longest legally binding product warranty on earth. Seriously. We take our Three Generation Guarantee® so seriously we cast the contract in the base of each skillet. If you, your children, or your children’s children aren’t completely happy just return your skillet and we’ll replace it or give you a full refund. Seriously.

    SHIPPING

    We aim to deliver all orders within 7-14 working days. You'll find live shipping rates for your country at checkout. We ship far and wide and significantly subsidise the shipping costs. Good quality cast iron is heavy. It’s the least we could do.

    Given the complex nature of delivering to different markets daily, we can’t take responsibility for import duties or taxes. All duties and taxes need to be paid for by the recipient.
