The best gifts are gifts that last a lifetime. At Taste of the South, we’re always on the lookout for gifts that get better with time and heirlooms we can one day pass down to our loved ones.

That’s why this year we’re eyeing Smithey Ironware products for everyone on our lists.

On an old naval base in Charleston, South Carolina, Smithey blacksmiths forge beautiful and unique carbon steel skillets, roasters, and even woks, while their cast iron craftspeople meticulously polish and season their American-made cast-iron cookware. Their passionate team knows that every piece of cookware that leaves their hands has a lifetime of meals and memories ahead of it.

While you may have a cast-iron skillet at home (and we always swear by a few vintage pieces in our own kitchens), a Smithey skillet is a great addition to your cast iron collection. These polished cast iron skillets feature a signature smooth and preseasoned interior surface that is naturally nonstick and easy to clean.

And for the cook who has everything, Smithey’s hand-forged carbon steel collection is sure to impress with a combination of artisan beauty and chef-worthy performance.

Here are a few of the pieces we love!

No. 12 Combo Set

How can you top the best-selling No. 12 cast-iron skillet? Well, with a top of course. This multiuse set features the No. 12 Cast Iron Skillet and No. 12 Flat Top Griddle, which is both a daily-use griddle and custom fit lid for your 12-inch skillet. An exceptional gift for those just starting a cast iron collection or for the well-seasoned cook.

Carbon Steel Wok

Something unique for the cook who has everything. Hand-forged by artisan blacksmiths, this stovetop stunner is the newest piece of cookware and has us smiling at the range each night. Rich in legacy, light in weight—this gift is sure to impress.

Dutch Oven

Featuring a fully polished non-enameled interior, the Smithey Dutch oven is the ideal tool for bread baking, chili making, and an all-season kitchen essential. Available in both 3.5 and 5.5 QT sizes and engineered to maintain even and consistent heat, the Smithey Dutch oven is for those who wish to stand out from the pack.
