4.0 Quart Flat-Bottomed Braiser

After the success of the Eric, we heard you: Make a bigger one! And so we did.

The 12-inch Joe is a jack-of-all-trades—a braiser, a casserole, a rondeau, a Dutch oven, or to many around these parts, a chicken fryer, and, always, a versatile roaster.

It has high enough walls to fry safely, double tabs for ease of handling, and a wide shape that fits shareable meals and pairs perfectly with our J glass lid.

Width: 13”
Diameter: 12”
Cooking Surface: 10”
Height: 2.625”
Capacity: 4.0 qts
Weight: 6.95 lbs

*The Joan skillet is not sized as a cover for the Joe.




IN STOCK" items generally ship within seven days of your order. A "PRE-ORDER" puts you in a first-order-in/first-order-out queue. Generally, pre-orders ship within six weeks, but depending on the number of orders ahead of yours, and current scrap rates, this cannot be guaranteed. 

If you need your cast iron quickly we might not be the best fit. 41 people perform sixty or more operations over 21 days to produce a pan; slow and necessary steps for our uniquely smooth finish. In today's retail environment where an online order can show up at your doorstep in 24 hours, we understand we are out of step, but we also make something that will last several generations. We hope you agree it is worth waiting for.

Your credit card will be charged at the time of your order.

If I was on a deserted island...

If I was on a deserted island I'd hope Joe and the J lid were with me. With the exception of Lil I am the proud caretaker of the whole collection. This pan does it all, especially with it's deep walls. If I had to choose one it very well may be the Joe. If I had to choose three it'd be Joe, Heather and Eric. I truly love using these pans everyday.

Butterfat is for real

Mainly vegetable oven dishes so far. Main reason for buying was to save room in oven and not have to deal with handles taking up space. So far it’s everything I want in a cast iron pan. Functional, lightweight, and easy to clean! Also, purchased the Eric and it’s the same deal!

Nuanced Excellence

I came home from work and my wife was using the new "Joe" brazier to cook liver and onions for my son who is on a special diet. It worked amazingly well. The next day it was my turn, and I cooked the fish for dinner in the "Joe." It gets used at least once a week. Speaking of use, a Butter Pat pan is used almost everyday in our house, and often multiple times a day. The Joan is the work horse in our home. I cooked breakfast on it and dinner on the Joan last night. Often there are multiple Butter Pat pans on the stove. I was watching one of my favorite cooking shows on PBS. They were reviewing Cast Iron Pans. I spotted the Butter Pat right away. There only comment was it was the most expensive. I disagree. Because they work so well, the per use for the year makes my Butter Pat pans the least expensive. I have several other brands and they are cabinet queens now. Cost per use is very high. I have all the pans now and the two braziers. They are all awesome. Learn to use them, and you will be cooking on them all the time!
