While no one will disparage your fondness for grandpa’s cast iron skillet, there’s a lot to be said for a new take on an old idea. Case in point: Syracuse-based Borough Furnace. Makers of small-batch cast iron skillets and bottle openers, the company uses waste vegetable oil to run their furnace and only recycled iron for their products. More over, their pans are amazing. The play between the sleekness of the shapes and the ageless appeal of cast iron is an immediate draw. Keep an eye on their website if you want in, because they look like they sell-out fast. Get frying! Via Remodelista.
