Cast Iron Skillets In the Shape of Midwestern States

Do you have some serious Midwestern pride? If you’re so inclined, you could possibly be the owner of a sculptural wall piece that’s also a fully functional tool for your kitchen. These cast iron skillets are in the shape of the northern-most Midwestern states, including: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

The State Cast Iron Skillets will heat your food evenly, and can make some awesomely detailed pancakes, omelets, hash browns, cakes and brownies. While each state is sold separately, the set is also sold as the Midwest — put on a red paduak wood frame, french cleat design, and hung using strong rare Earth magnets. ($6,000 @ MaidenFE)


Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet A La Mode

If God did not intend for this to be one of the most heavenly desserts? know to man than I don’t know what is. This chocolate chip cookie baked in a skillet seems simple enough except when you dig into that first bite you see stars. This dessert is definitely one of my favorites ever. (Thx ericisaac)


Lodge: Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillets

Arguably one of the most important items in any kitchen, the cast iron skillet is a must-have…but for avid users, you know the best flavor comes after a few months, even a few years of continuous use. Lodge has created a Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet (ranging from $10-$40) that ships pre-seasoned. The Lodge Manufacturing team created this skillet utilizing a system they came up with in 2002, using a proprietary vegetable oil spray system coupled with high temperature gas ovens to season the cookware before it leaves their South Pittsburgh foundry.
