Netherton Foundry Spun Iron Chef's Prospector Pan 11"


Netherton Foundry’s double-handled prospector pan is a versatile non-stick pan for searing steak, sautéing vegetables and cooking frittatas. This pan is a must for those that don’t like how other non-stick pans peel or scratch over a year or so. The surface of a spun iron pan develops a patina after every use, meaning it becomes more – not less – non-stick over time. 

The large 11” pan is versatile enough for one-pot cooking – fry on the hob, brown under the grill and finish cooking in the oven. Take the pan straight from the hob or oven to the table for an impressive presentation.

Made from Netherton Foundry’s signature spun iron, the prospector pan is lighter than cast iron but still has the sought after non-stick, patina-building qualities and durability. The prospector pan is suitable for all cooking surfaces including induction hobs – it heats fast and cools quickly. It also comes pre-seasoned, so you can get cooking right away. 

In time, a well-seasoned pan can be used to cook virtually fat-free, for healthier cooking. Before the first use, wash the pan with hot water. Do not use soap or detergent. Dry immediately with a towel, as leaving it to air dry increases the chance of rusting. If you need to scrub, use a plastic bristle brush in hot soapy water, but avoid anything harsher. Avoid detergents completely.

About Netherton Foundry

The Netherton Foundry is a family company based in Shropshire – home of the 18th and 19th century ironmasters. Their pans are made from 99.1% pure iron and they use locally sourced materials wherever possible – the oak that makes the pan handles is British, and the flax seasoning oil comes from Sussex. Experienced local craftsmen use traditional manufacturing methods to bring you high quality cookware that gets better over time.

Please note, if using a ceramic or induction hob, increase the heat slowly for the first few uses to prevent buckling. Do not drop hot pans into cold water – this can cause the metal to warp or shatter.
