This Is What Every Cast-Iron Skillet Lover Wants for the Holidays

One of the best cast-iron cookware makers collabed with a chef famous for using cast-iron cookware.


Chef Sean Brock is a Southern American food evangelist who is known for a love of cast-iron cookware. Butter Pat Industries is one of the best cast-iron cookware makers in the US. Together, the two released the ideal holiday gift for the home cook.

The Sean Brock x Butter Pat bundle includes one of the brand’s 10-inch cast-iron skillets, a copy of Brock’s new cookbook, South, a bag of H.S. Brock’s Jimmy Red Cornbread Mix and a Butter Pat poster for $245. Butter Pat’s skillets are prized for their blend of old school cast iron design and new school (and mostly proprietary) manufacturing methods; the pans are thin where they can be and thick where they need to be, as smooth as glass and sport near-perfect pour spouts. No iron we’ve tested cooked as evenly while remaining relatively lightweight.

On Brock’s end, his new recipe tome is a followup to the award-winning Heritage cookbook (it includes its own chapter on cast iron, too). The sack of Jimmy Red cornbread mix was made in partnership with a South Carolina mill to save the rare, non-homogenized grain. It’s also the mix Brock used in his Chef’s Table feature on Netflix (in which he uses a Butter Pat pan).

The set is available through Butter Pat’s site now while supplies last.
