BUTTER PAT POLISHED CAST IRON COOKWARE™
“It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition”
– 19th c. American writer Henry JamesPurchases don’t make traditions; the rituals of repeated use make traditions. How can that happen with the customary problems of crudely cast cookware? Every detail in BUTTER PAT Polished Cast Iron Cookware has been considered to help you achieve your best results - whether they are ceremonial holiday meals or just every day breakfasts.
“Quality and functionality have far surpassed my expectations.”
– Butter Pat customer D. BalajHigh thermal mass is the desirable characteristic of cast iron that delivers the searing heat to the surface of your foods. With thinner side-walls and a thicker heat plate our design changes the traditional geometry. Our pans are thinner where they can be and thicker where they should be.
Cast iron hasn't been this smooth in a hundred years.
Butter Pat Polished Cast Iron Cookware is thinner and lighter than other cast iron, now or in the past. It has a uniquely smooth finish on all surfaces that allows food to lift easily, when cooking or cleaning.

CHOOSE FROM FOUR SIZES
The Lili is big, really big. With a 12” cooking surface it is more griddle than skillet, allowing multiple items to be cooked at once and all to stay warm. Also perfect for oven roasting vegetables, a whole spatchcock chicken or family size pizza.
The 10” cooking surface of the Joan is sized for the most common cast iron baking and frying recipes with enough surface to give you that coveted cast iron crust. It’s the frying workhorse.
The Heather's 8” cooking surface, is sized to the larger stove eyes for high temp searing, or when your stove-top real estate is at a premium.
The 6” cooking surface makes this pan a good choice for eggs, cobblers, and single servings at the table.
The 2” cooking surface of the Aunt Alma makes it practically useless for cooking anything. However, quail eggs aside, it’s a handy place for keys, rings and coins for every cook.
WHAT CHEFS ARE SAYING ABOUT BUTTER PAT
BEN FORD’S PARKER HOUSE ROLLS“Outdoor cooking conditions can make baking in a skillet outdoors a challenge. This skillet helps make my Parker House rolls perfect every time…the finish makes clean up a snap.”
DAVID GUAS’ BLACKBERRY ALMOND CRISP“What I love about doing fruit crisps or cobblers with crumble in the Butter Pat cast iron, is the even heating. It allows fruit to break down and cook consistently as well as allowing the crust to brown evenly - and CRUST IS EVERYTHING for these desserts. My kids will be lucky to have this passed down to them.”
KENJI LÓPEZ-ALT’S CAMP BREAKFAST“I was frying eggs and making pancakes on it right from the start with essentially no seasoning at all and they released and slid around perfectly.”
STEPHEN GERIKE’S CARNITAS“The easiest batch of carnitas I've ever made. I was able to fit an entire six-pound pork butt into the 14" pan in one layer to sear…beautiful and delicious! I love this pan.”
JOHN CURRENCE’S FRIED CATFISH“It is absolutely beautiful and a joy to cook in.”
