About this Product.

Shropshire Made 10" (26cm) Crochta Pan © 

When someone gets up at three in the morning to travel across country and ask you to make a pan “just like their grandmother’s”, you can scarcely refuse. Which is exactly what happened; Harry travelled from Norfolk to sit on our doorstep, waiting for us to open up. With a cup of tea in hand, he described his grandmother’s pan and asked if we could make him a replica. Intrigued by his story and in respect of the journey he’d made to see us, we agreed to his request. And that's how the crochta pan was born.

 

    
   

 

It is hard to find any history of these pans on the internet, but anecdotal evidence has thrown up several stories of their being used in Norfolk, of their use in so-called
blackhouses
in the Hebrides as well as Devon, Ireland and as far afield as Hungary. Crochta is the Irish word for hanging. 

 

Based on our traditional frying pans, the crochta pan has an arched handle with hanging ring and a useful pouring spout.  Made from our pre-seasoned spun iron, these are sturdy, but not too heavy.

Originally designed to be used hanging over a fire, these pans are equally at home on the hob.

Why choose a pre- seasoned pan ?

No chemicals or PTFE are used in the coating of the pan.

The edible Sussex flax oil coating is easy to wash & naturally non-stick. It is ready for immediate use. 

Coating can be simply restored at home, time after time .

Iron pans are tough and can be used at very high temperatures.

This iron pan is suitable for all types of hobs, grills and ovens.

Iron is a pure, simple metal which is easy to look after & very recyclable.

What’s special about OUR spun black iron pans?

Serious cooks and professional chefs love the way that black iron pans heat evenly and give great cooking performance.

The more you use your pan the better it gets as the seasoned patina develops.

A couple of handy tips:

 If you are cooking meat or fish -  oil the food, not the pan

 Be patient; allow the food to cook before trying to turn it over. 

 Don't fry food straight from the fridge, allow it to come up to room temperature. 

The pan bodies are spun by hand, so each one is slightly different.  They will not all be as flat as a billiard table.

If you do want to keep it as flat as you can, then follow these simple guidelines.

Every time you use the pan, heat it SLOWLY to frying temperature, then you can use full power.

This is especially important if you are using powerful cooking hobs such as induction.

Use a hob the same size as the pan base, small rings WILL warp big pans.

 Never drop a hot pan into cold water. This will buckle it.

If your pan has oak handles, the grain on every piece is unique and each one is branded by hand. They are like fingerprints, no two are identical.

Love your pan and follow our instructions for re-seasoning. Oven seasoning is kinder to the pan than hob top seasoning and it also give a nicer looking finish. 

We suggest that you only use hob top seasoning, if your oven is too small for your pan or you are re-seasoning your wok.

Your pan will develop with use and, if cared for, will age beautifully and be a friend for life.
