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.

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.

Perfect pan

As a long time cast iron user/lover, I’ve come to know exactly what I need in a pan. I’ve tried them all and because of that, I’ve compiled a list of what I like and don’t like in a cast iron pan. Luckily for me, Butter Pat was highly recommended by someone and I decided to give you a try. So far, Joan checks all the boxes for me. She is the right size, she is lighter, and most importantly she is easy to clean. She also cooks really well and after a few rounds of seasoning, nothing sticks- not even scrambled eggs! She has become my “go to” pan. It’s safe to say that I am in love and very happy with Butter Pat. I’m sure I’ll be adding siblings for Joan in the future!

Best cast iron on the market.

I have a Smithey, Stargazer and numerous Lodge pieces. Butter Pat is a step above. Quality, attention to detail and SMOOTH. I have a Joan and Heather.. I feel certain that a Homer is incoming. Big fan.

Amazing Skillet!

I'm familiar with other cast iron skillets, and I was expecting a bit of a learning curve when my new Joan arrived; however, I was totally amazed at how well my Joan performed on my induction burner. My first meal in my skillet was a Mexican chorizo, potato and egg scramble. The chorizo and potatoes fried and crisped evenly across the pan, and the added eggs scrambled at the end without anything ever sticking to the bottom of the skillet. I have never owned a pan that performed this well. After breakfast I ordered two more pans!

At Butter Pat, we believe the secret to a lifelong cast-iron pan is taking good care of it. Sign up for our newsletter to learn everything you need to know and get $25 off your next cookware purchase.
