Born of a long heritage of craftsmanship and firmly rooted in the soil of the Nordics, Norden™ premium cast iron cookware exemplifies lasting Nordic design, inspired by nature. The Norden™ Cast Iron Grill Pan (10.2 in.) has an innovative Thermium™ mineral treatment on the matte enameled cast iron surface that makes it easy to care for—no seasoning required. Cast iron stores heat extremely well and is ideal for frying at high temperatures, especially when browning or searing, and a grill cook surface allows fat to separate from food. Norden™ cast iron is easy to maintain and will even improve with age, no seasoning needed. A removable wooden handle is made of beautiful Finnish birch. (Please remove the handle before using this pan in the oven.) Norden™ cookware works on all types of cooktops, including induction. Designed in Finland.
