Timo Sarpaneva



With a wooden handle and a cast iron body, this ultimate design classic is as functional in the kitchen as it is appealing on the dining table. Combining design usability with a traditional cast iron pot, Sarpaneva’s inspiration came from his blacksmith grandfather.

He tasked Timo with creating a modern rendition of the ancient cast iron pot. It won the silver medal at the 1960 Milan Triennale as well as the International Design Award in the United States and features in the V&A's collections. The wooden handle can be used to lift the lid in several ways - as illustrated in our pictures.

This cast iron cookware is coated with enamel. Enamel protects the surface against rust and strengthens it. In enamelled products food can be prepared in the oven or on the stove with good results every time. Food cooks evenly and browns well. The enamelled surface prevents food flavours from sticking to the pot, so use can use the same pot for cooking fish as well as meat. Use wooden or plastic kitchen utensils. Sharp objects and scouring agents and sponges can damage the enamel. Always wash enamelled cast iron products by hand, with or without washing liquid. Occasionally, it is recommended to treat the enamelled surface with cooking oil.
