Finex

Octagonal Cast Iron Skillet

$125

Portland-based FINEX—with humble origins on Kickstarter—is now one of the very few American companies making cast iron cookware. With deeper walls than the average skillet, this compact 8″ one from FINEX is best for browning meats and sautéing vegetable side dishes, but can handle anything from breakfast to blackberry crumbles. The octagonal design makes it much easier to pour sauce or cooking liquids from almost any angle. For more options, there’s also a grill pan version to get your BBQ on even in colder weather.
