Smithey products were founded from the love and time the founder, Isaac Morton, spent restoring vintage ironware and gifting it to friends and family. From this passion came the desire to create cast iron cookware that had the same qualities as the vintage ironware Isaac restored. Smithey Ironware is the fruit of all of that love and labor. In addition to superior-quality cast iron cookware, Smithey Ironware also makes carbon steel cookware. If you’re looking for incredible cookware that has the look, feel, and durability of your grandma’s favorite dutch oven, look no further than Smithey Ironware.

Speaking of dutch ovens, we’re honored to feature Smithey’s 7.25 QT Cast Iron Dutch Oven. It features a wide base, making it ideal for cooking meats and vegetables. We love its large capacity. This is the perfect size for cooking Julia Child’s beef bourguignon for the entire family. Brown the meat on the stove and when it’s time, pop it into the oven to finish it up. This dutch oven also works well with glass tops, gas, and electric stoves.

When Smithey Ironware designed this skillet, they made sure it was versatile. Its lid is also compatible with the Smithey Ironware No. 12 Traditional Cast Iron Skillet. Now let’s talk camping. This dutch oven is safe to use over an open fire. Sure you can still have hot dogs and S’mores but thanks to this dutch oven, you can also cook chili, mac n cheese, and more. Kick your meals up a few notches when you start cooking with the Smithey 7.25 QT. Cast Iron Dutch Oven. Add this to your shopping cart today!
