Now I know that this cast-iron frying pan’s a little worse for wear, but it’s a great quality pan and still has plenty of life left in it! Plus we’ve given it a seriously good scrub so even though it may look a bit grubby, it’s clean enough to eat off! The bottom of the pan is stamped FE (symbol for iron) Belgium, which as far as I know is one of the stamps that was used by Descoware. Descoware were bought out by Le Creuset in the 1970s, and are responsible for the great flame design that Le Creuset is so famous for. Julia Child was a big fan of the cookware, and featured it regularly on her cooking show during the 1960s – she supposedly turned her nose up at Le Creuset, believing Descoware to be the superior product (take that Le Creuset!).

Note: There is an odd screw that attaches the handle to the pan. It seems to be completely stable, but I don’t think that it’s original.

Dimensions: 20cm in diameter x 4.5cm deep; 40cm long (incl. handle)

Price: R210
