The Lil' Legacy (20cm) is the mini version of the Legacy Pan.
Switch from short-life pans to one that will outlast you. Handmade to be handed down, the Lil’ Legacy is PFAS, PFOA, and PTFE free and made with all natural, 100% recycled iron. So nothing is taken from the ground to make them.
The Lil’ Legacy works on any cooking surface, from induction to campfire, and comes with the world’s longest product warranty of 100 years. That is approximately 50 non-stick pans. Or three generations of daily use. In fact, it comes with Ironclad’s trademark Three Generation Guarantee® cast into the base.
It arrives seasoned.
To season after each use, you can use your favourite high smoke point, or grab some of our Homemade Conditioning Balm.
Each Lil’ Legacy comes with its own lifetime account to the Recipe Vault®. A closed digital platform to protect secret family recipes, collate personal favourites, and document the meals your Lil’ will prepare for generations to come
To make cookware that will last more than a century of use, we returned to techniques used to make some of the most beautiful antique cast iron in circulation today. It takes a little longer, but it lasts a lot longer.
Making products ethically costs more. Our cast iron is handmade by people who are paid a living wage. We also test every pour, so you won't end up with stuff like lead in your food. Guaranteed. We aren't trying to compete with the discount skillets made in anonymous overseas factories. We make products that we personally guarantee for 100 years. While we aren't the cheapest, we are the best value.
A regular, chemically-coated pan will cost on average $40, and is thrown away every 18 months. An Ironclad Pan costs from $199, and will never be thrown away. Three generations of daily use, guaranteed. Adjust for your currency, the maths is the same. Good for you, good for your wallet.
There are four types of cast iron, but only one you want on your food.
1. Malleable Cast Iron is used for electrical fittings, mining equipment and machine parts. Nope.
2. Ductile Cast Iron is a popular choice for crankshafts, gears, heavy duty suspensions and brakes. Nope.
3. White Cast Iron is used for its wear resistant properties in pump housings, mill linings and rods, crushers and brake shoes. Nope.
4. Grey Cast iron is ideal for cookware. That’s the one.
There are no food standards in NZ or AU (yet) for the quality of iron used in cast iron cookware. This means that some companies use the cheap stuff just because they think nobody is watching. If you have any questions about the material used in your cookware, ask the manufacturer. They have a duty of care to answer you.
Uh oh. You left it to drip dry? Not to worry. Any rust that you find is only the smallest possible surface rust. Think micro-millimeters. That surface rust can be scrubbed off with soap and steel wool, or an oiled cloth, or by putting your pan into the oven for a cleaning cycle. If you find rust, don’t worry. Just go back to the initial pre-seasoning instructions and start over. Check out our TIPS or contact us. We’re always happy to help out.
Absolutely it will. Cast iron will work on any cooking surface; BBQ, open fire, induction, gas, electric solid plate or electric radiant ring, vitro-ceramic glass, gas oven, wood oven, or cycle powered ovens.
Glad you asked. Ironclad Pan Co. offers the longest legally binding product warranty on earth. Seriously. We take our Three Generation Guarantee® so seriously we cast the contract in the base of each skillet. If you, your children, or your children’s children aren’t completely happy just return your skillet and we’ll replace it or give you a full refund. Seriously.
We aim to deliver all orders within 7-14 working days. The Heirloom is the only exception. You'll find live shipping rates for your country at checkout. We ship far and wide and significantly subsidise the shipping costs. Good quality cast iron is heavy. It’s the least we could do.
Given the complex nature of delivering to different markets daily, we can’t take responsibility for import duties or taxes. All duties and taxes need to be paid for by the recipient.
