Made for a Lifetime
The process for forging Barebones cast iron contains no coincidence. With meticulous artistry and craftsmanship, each piece is pre-seasoned with natural, organic oils. And by leaving the surface ever so raw and rugged, the oils are better absorbed, providing a better cooking surface from the very first use. Unlike other cast iron, it isn’t necessary to wash or scrub Barebones cast iron before use - we don’t use any resins to cover imperfections. We deliver lasting cast iron pieces that are as naturally beautiful as they are durable.
After seasoning, our cast iron is packaged and shipped to its new home. Move it directly from package to stove, oven, or fire pit. Pre-seasoned and free of harmful chemicals, your cast iron is ready to use.
We do something a little different with our cast iron that sets it apart from other cast iron cookware - we strengthen it with steel. By adding a greater portion of steel than other cast iron makers, each piece is better tempered to handle rapid temperature change without the cracking or breaking that typically occurs in more iron-dense products. This also allows our cast iron to be 15% lighter than similar cast iron products, offering smoother handling and a more agile cooking experience.
Enhanced durability in a lighter finished product is a staple of Barebones cast iron. But the real magic lies in the cooking experience.
From rich stews and soft breads, to cast iron chicken and crisp desserts, our cast iron delivers a culinary experience worthy of passing onto your next generation.
Those who cook with Barebones cast iron immediately notice a difference in texture from other cast iron products: it’s raw and rugged, yet primed to develop a smooth, glassy texture through time and cooking. We leave the surface just raw enough to allow for better effects in our pre-seasoning process and the cooking experience. Highly raw and grainy cast iron is typically treated with resin-based sealants to cover imperfections and weaker areas that may crack over time. Barebones cast iron is not.
I have owned my skillet for three weeks now and have used it three times. Twice to make a breakfast skillet meal with pork sausage, peppers, onions etc, and once to make blackened chicken.
The thing that I didn't appreciate until I used it was the consistent heat throughout the skillet. No hotspots just a very even and deep heat that makes cooking straightforward.
Cleaning is a breeze- I wipe out the pan with a paper towel and then scrub with Kosher Salt. No drama.
The more you use it the better it gets !
It is an awesome pan and have used it on propane burner, mesquite fire and charcoal. This pan is versatile and highly recommended it.
I oil my cast iron cookware religiously after every use, but this 12" skillet from Barebones was well seasoned and ready to go. It heats evenly, does really well in moving from stovetop to oven, and is a joy to use. Slightly lighter than other 12" skillets, and a longer handle than many, both of which help. You should buy from Barebones!
I have other iron skillets, but I really like this one. Very satisfied with my purchase and it arrived quickly.
