Any home cook with a cast iron pan has a world of versatility in one mighty tool: roast, sauté, and sear; braise, bake, and broil. Equip yourself with a high quality version, and you’ll be set for life. Enter Stargazer Cast Iron, based in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Peter Huntley, a professional kitchenware designer, started Stargazer Cast Iron in 2015 to create a better product than what he was seeing on the market—a cast iron pan that was not only more durable, but made for performance rather than nostalgia. Stargazer cast iron pans are smoother (resulting in a truly non-stick pan), lighter, safer to handle, and easier to clean. Along with a top-of-the-line product, Huntley places importance on making their products entirely in the U.S. and practices sustainability from process to packaging. And their direct to consumer model—where everything is sold exclusively through their website, stargazercastiron.com—reduces prices and makes buying a piece of cake (pun definitely intended).
We’re thrilled to share this secret weapon that many chefs at Lehigh Valley restaurants have already discovered. Happy cooking!
