The Skeppshult cast iron pan is a design piece and fulfills its tasks perfectly. For everyday use, we often opt for other pans, such as the De Buyer Mineral B Element or the Lodge Combo Cooker. They are more versatile. But there is probably no better and more suitable pan to present your food to your guests at the table. And the pan will keep it warm for a long time as well. A very good pan, but it also has its price.
Skeppshult Cast Iron Pan Review
The Skeppshult cast iron frying pan with a wooden handle is, without a doubt, the most visually appealing pan in our collection. In this test, we will take a closer look at the Swedish frying pan from a different perspective.
Material and Workmanship
The pan is composed entirely of cast iron and comes in a single piece. With the exception of the eyelet at the end of the handle, the handle is crafted entirely of walnut wood. The handle has been inscribed with the brand name Skeppshult. The wood has been expertly polished, and the remainder of the pan has been meticulously treated as well. It has already been seasoned, which saves you a lot of time and effort.
The bottom is flat when heated and the pan does not wobble a bit.
Handling of the Skeppshult Cast Iron Pan
Like all cast iron pans, the Skeppshult frying pan is not lightweight. Even the 9.5 inch / 24 cm variant weighs just under 4.4 pound / 2 kg, the 11 inch / 28 cm variant weighs a proud 6.2 pound / 2.8 kg. This makes pivoting and moving the pan a bit difficult. The counter-grip, which is also made of cast iron, helps a bit.
The wooden handle on the pan, which distinguishes it from other similar products, offers both advantages and downsides. Even when the pan is extremely hot, the handle may be handled without any difficulty. However, the pan cannot be used in the oven, and it is also not permitted on the grill since the intense heat would cause the wood to deteriorate and lose its flavor. Perhaps some individuals use a moist towel to cover the handle before baking it, but we do not encourage trying this at home. As a result, if seasoning the pan in the oven is ever necessary, it should never be done! In addition, the design of the Skeppshult frying pan is not especially appealing to us: the sides of the Skeppshult frying pan are not particularly high. If you are cooking something that requires a lot of stirring, you must be careful that it does not spill out. As a result, the pan is better suited for meals that do not require a great deal of stirring..
Thermal Properties of the Skillet
The pan takes a little longer than the De Buyer Mineral B Element to get to 392° F / 200 °C and about the same length as the pan of the Lodge Combo-Cookers. It took her 1:54 minutes to reach 212° F / 100 °C on the electric hob and 3:14 minutes to reach 392° F / 200 °C. That’s one of the slowest pans in our test. But that’s not surprising with the masses of iron the pan brings to the oven. The pan scores points in heat storage and looks great when served directly in the food. The heat distribution is also relatively uniform: when the pan in the center reached 212° F / 100 °C, it had at a point 2 inch / 5 cm farther out a temperature of 48° F / 9 °C and at 212° F / 100 °C a temperature difference of 38.5° F / 3,6 °Ce. That’s very good.
Long-Term Test Skeppshult Cast Iron Frying Pan
As of the beginning of 2020, the Skeppshult frying pan has been in use without any issues being reported to the company. Although we use them more regularly than our other frying pans, we do so less frequently because of the disadvantages listed in the “Handling” section. After frying, the pan should be rubbed with oil, especially in the beginning, when the patina is not yet as noticeable.
Rust will form very fast if this is not done.
The pan for serving, on the other hand, could not be more lovely, and the compliments of the visitors are already included in the purchase.
