The Art  & History of Iron Casting

From the ore to your kitchen, Guro's cast iron products undergo a series of monitored and carefully measured processing stages. Being able to reach a staggering 85% ore concentration is the first out of many crucial challenges that our crew faces daily. Achieving the fine finish of each of our creations requires paying meticulous attention to the sands that we use as our expandable molding method. Finally, solidifying the iron is done evenly in order to produce a high quality cast, clear from contaminations and "bubbles" in the iron.

History & Tradition
Valued for their durability and heat retention, cast iron cookware have been around for over two thousand years. Before the invention of the kitchen stove in the middle of the 19th century, cast irons were used in the hearth or over the fireplace. Dutch Ovens (dutch as in fake, not from Holland) were developed with the onset of the industrial revolution and became ever more popular during the first half of the 20th century, a time when most Americans households had at least one cast iron cookware piece.
