Video: Cineastas spent some time with Mike Whitehead and Finex Cast Iron Cookware Co. to give a glimpse of how Finex is trying to reinvent something that has existed for thousands of years: cast iron. I love the slow and considered process that goes into each frying pan. And I love to imagine the delicious food that will be inside them.
If you're wondering why the pan is octagonal, Finex says that the shape "gives you six different directions to pour from when cooking on a crowded stove top". The handle is made with stainless steal and is supposed to help dissipate heat. It all might be overkill for making a cast iron frying pan but it's sure fun to watch.
