Most of the modern cast-iron manufacturers use machines to smooth the cooking surface of their pans. But that’s not the case with Marquette Castings. This company has found a way to produce smooth cast iron without the need to grind down the pan—and speaking from personal experience, it is a very nice pan!
In the following interview, I speak with Eric Steckling, one of the founders of Marquette Castings. Watch this video to learn:
~ How Eric and his brothers came to start a cast-iron manufacturing company
~ Why Marquette Castings uses investment (lost wax) casting, and the benefits to their products
~ The unique features of the Marquette Castings skillet, including the narrow handle attachment that would not be possible with traditional sand casting
~ What’s next for Marquette Castings
