Well, the world can change in three generations.

Think about it.

100 years ago our choice of cars was limited to one. Doctors prescribed Heroin, Mercury and Leeches. Penicillin wouldn’t be discovered for another four years. Movies were silent, women had just been given the right to vote, child labor was cool with people, indoor toilets were just catching on, and we had collectively promised ourselves that one world war was more than enough.

There were nearly six billion less people on the planet and approximately 500 more species of animal. Nobody who wasn’t falling had ever travelled over about 30km per hour. And, outside of a game of hide-and-seek, not many people would have ever asked the question, “Where are you?”

But one of the biggest changes over the last century is how we consume. We bought less stuff and the stuff we did buy we cared for and usually handed on. It made sense financially. And, in hindsight, environmentally.

This generation will be the one who creates the step change. Wiser for some pretty big mistakes, we’ll keep the good change from the last century, lose the bad, and leave the world in a better place for our children’s children.

New ideas are arriving and old ideas are being resurrected. Find them. Encourage them. Share them. At Ironclad we are working to re-introduce the idea of generational shopping. Or, shopping well and buying once. Or, buying mindfully. We are not going to save the planet, but a significant shift in how people shop globally actually might.

And our mission seems to be catching on.

If the change experienced over the last three generations is anything to go by, the world in 100 years will be absolutely amazing.

A regular, chemically-coated pan will cost on average $40, and is thrown away every 18 months. An Ironclad Pan costs from $199, and will never be thrown away. Three generations of daily use, guaranteed. Adjust for your currency, the maths is the same. Good for you, good for your wallet.

There are four types of cast iron, but only one you want on your food. 

1. Malleable Cast Iron is used for electrical fittings, mining equipment and machine parts. Nope. 

2. Ductile Cast Iron is a popular choice for crankshafts, gears, heavy duty suspensions and brakes. Nope.

3. White Cast Iron is used for its wear resistant properties in pump housings, mill linings and rods, crushers and brake shoes. Nope.

4. Grey Cast iron is ideal for cookware. That’s the one. 

There are no food standards in NZ or AU (yet) for the quality of iron used in cast iron cookware. This means that some companies use the cheap stuff just because they think nobody is watching. If you have any questions about the material used in your cookware, ask the manufacturer. They have a duty of care to answer you.

Uh oh. You left it to drip dry? Not to worry. Any rust that you find is only the smallest possible surface rust. Think micro-millimeters. That surface rust can be scrubbed off with soap and steel wool, or an oiled cloth, or by putting your pan into the oven for a cleaning cycle. If you find rust, don’t worry. Just go back to the initial pre-seasoning instructions and start over. Check out our TIPS or contact us. We’re always happy to help out.

Absolutely it will. Cast iron will work on any cooking surface; BBQ, open fire, induction, gas, electric solid plate or electric radiant ring, vitro-ceramic glass, gas oven, wood oven, or cycle powered ovens.


Glad you asked. Ironclad Pan Co. offers the longest legally binding product warranty on earth. Seriously. We take our Three Generation Guarantee® so seriously we cast the contract in the base of each skillet. If you, your children, or your children’s children aren’t completely happy just return your skillet and we’ll replace it or give you a full refund. Seriously.


Unless out of stock or only available to pre-order, all orders are shipped in 3-5 business days. The Heirloom is the only exception. You'll find live shipping rates for your country at checkout. We ship far and wide and significantly subsidise the shipping costs. Good quality cast iron is heavy. It’s the least we could do.

Given the complex nature of delivering to different markets daily, we can’t take responsibility for import duties or taxes. All duties and taxes need to be paid for by the recipient.
