Not only is the cooking surface smooth, but the handle is cast to look like a twig:




And .... pie in a pan:

Mmm... smooth bottoms. That is not intended to be an innuendo as my wife implies over my shoulder; this is truly exciting.

Sounds good wish someone would do something similar over here in the EU . The postage from the US kills it for us over here plus the price of the EU cast iron pans are truly stupid . I was looking at a brand new set of cast iron pans in a shop here in France that would have cost me more than putting into this kickstarter plus I would have got free napkin rings . Those bright orange orange cassarols yup you know the ones 250$!
Please someone why dont you try and make these in france ?
I will even put you up in return for a pan or two
Or even be your european agent

David - go to amazon.co.uk. Search for cast iron pans. Select any that have 'amazon prime' next to them. If you spend over, I think, £25 and select 'free super saver delivery' at checkout they will ship free. At least they will today, to Portugal, so they might to France too. The shipping seems to vary day by day for no apparent reason.

Paul, I watched your YT video (http://youtu.be/npWOnXZAFLY) on how to cook eggs on cast iron and WOWZERS! Thank you so much. I am over the moon at my ability to do that now.

I just have to laugh at the unfortunate name that they gave these pans -- STICK PANS!!! Yikes! I mean I realize that they are referring to the handles shaped like sticks but I immediately thought of food STICKING to the pans. LOL
