I struggled for ages to find a good range of cast iron cookware in Portugal. They sell Dutch ovens here, but not skillets or griddles.

Then amazon.co.uk started to sell bits and pieces, and now it seems they do sell a whole set, so if anyone has been itching to start their cast iron adventures this might be just what they've been looking for!

Here's the link.




Shipping to Portugal is a bit steep at £25, but only £6 to the UK, so don't forget to check before you buy and budget accordingly.

I haven't I'm afraid. I've just got myself set up with everything I need, and none of it is the same brand.

Well they're all made by *someone* - TecTake isn't exactly one of the ones that springs to mind though.

I have 'Victor' and 'Kitchen Craft' stuff bought from amazon, a completely unmarked Dutch oven from a local market, and in pride of place a Skeppshult skillet given me its previous owner of thirty years when it got too heavy for her to lift. They all seem to work fine though.

Oh wow - YES! It looks like exactly the same set, and only a tenner shipping instead of £25.

I wonder why they didn't think to use 'cast iron' in the title? It would have shown up so much better in the searches.

Well it's a sturdy enough pot-rack. I'm sure it would hold some more if you could lay your hands on any.

I like that rack. It looks like a perfect match for my clothes airer.
