Buy cast iron cookware in NZ at Top Gear
These days, everyone’s raving about non-stick this, ergonomic handle that. There’s a surprising amount of celebrity-branded cookware that’s just not up to the job of cooking the way you want. If you love cooking over an open fire, cast iron cookware is absolutely essential. Most regular stainless steel pots and pans can’t be placed in an oven or over an uncontrolled high heat. They warp and burn, and that fancy non-stick surface? You don’t even want to know.
When you buy cast iron pans, you’re getting a piece of cookware that’s so durable, it’ll probably outlast you. A basic skillet is incredibly versatile, but you can also pick up grills, dutch ovens and more for those longer group trips. They’re low maintenance and don’t require scrubbing with soap – in fact, most outdoor cooking aficionados prefer to rinse with water (or scrub with salt if absolutely necessary). Over time, this gentle washing actually makes the pan relatively non-stick. The heat distribution is great on cast iron pans. NZ based customers of Top Gear often tell us they prefer them because they’re easier to cook quickly with – ideal after a long day on the trail.
We stock a select range of cast iron cookware from the world’s leading brands, including Lodge. Established in 1896 in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, it’s the ultimate choice for hunters, campers and adventurers who appreciate rustic style and good quality.
When you buy cast iron pans, don’t forget to pick up essentials like knives and utensils. You can save even more by combining shipping. Accessories like polycarbonate pan scrapers make it even easier to clean without scrubbing.
