Every Stargazer skillet undergoes a proprietary 6 step process to maximize the performance of the cooking surface.
The resulting finish is smooth to the touch, but with microscopic texture that releases food and holds onto seasoning.
Most boutique retail cast iron brands stop after machining the surface smooth. This finish is too slick to hold seasoning. We know, because we tried it.
This is what you're used to seeing from mass produced brands. A raw, rough surface finish that causes food to stick.
Our skillets are third party verified to be free of toxic metals like lead, mercury and cadmium. We use no space age materials or manufactured non-stick coatings to produce our skillets.
Stargazer skillets are seasoned with with certified non-GMO canola, grapeseed and sunflower oils. This aids in non-stick cooking performance and makes our cookware safer for the whole family.
