Stargazer gave us authorization to use some of their photos and info. The images and their story is lifted off their website. We would like to extend a huge thank you to Stargazer’s Luke Trovato for corresponding with us and authorizing the use of their images and text.
Also today I placed an order for one of their skillets. We will have a future article to let you readers know how this all went. We also intend to do some cooking as soon as it arrives. We will be putting the cast iron through its paces.
I personally am drawn to the Stargazer brand Cast Iron due to the fact this is made in USA. Secondly I own numerous vintage skillets such as Griswold, BSR and the like. Vintage pieces from back when the cooking surfaces were smooth, compared to other rough modern Cast Iron Cookware.
I am very curious to test out this surface. As a member of an active Dutch Oven Cooking group I often cook in competition. There isn’t an event that goes by that we aren’t discussing Cast Iron. The cooking surface is often a topic. All of use have wondered why no one was producing smooth cast iron cookware like the “old days”. We also all want USA made.
I just hope they start producing some Dutch Ovens too.
Check out our story at this link. Or new skillet was delivered. The Cooking and the Testing. Most importantly the tasting!
The Stargazer Story:
In the cast iron marketplace, we’re the new kid on the block. Stargazer Cast Iron was founded in 2015 by three old friends with a shared vision: creating the best cast iron cookware around.
It started with an obsession. Peter Huntley, professional designer and hobby cook, went searching for the perfect skillet and came up empty-handed. Dissatisfied with the options on the market, he turned to vintage cookware to find the quality he was looking for. After nearly a year of collecting, restoring, and cooking with vintage cast iron, he saw the untapped potential and decided it was time for something new. He created a unique cast iron skillet from the ground up: reimagined, redesigned, and revitalized. Huntley enlisted the help of two friends to bring the vision to life and Stargazer Cast Iron was born.
Our cookware is made using the same proven materials and manufacturing processes that were used over one hundred years ago, now aided by CNC machining for unrivaled precision. Our designs are practical and our quality is second to none. We believe we have created the finest cast iron skillet available today, or anytime for that matter.
