Blog Widget by LinkWithin

A 3 quart cast iron casserole dish (cauldron?) with wooden handle is a combination of tradition, functionism and polished aesthetics. An ultimate design classic once celebrated on a Finnish postage stamp. Combining design usability with a traditional cast iron pot, Timo Sarpaneva’s inspiration came from his blacksmith grandfather. Timeless and ingenious design, as functional in the kitchen as appealing on the dining table. This pot has a 3 quart capacity. Made of heavy cast iron with white enamel interior finish. Wooden handle can be used to move the pot as well as a handle to lift the lid when hot. Hand wash. Made in Finland. Awarded the silver medal at the 1960 Milan Triennial and the International Design Award in the United States, the “Finnish Design Classic!” label can be found on every Sarpaneva pot.
