While most cast-iron cookware is cast in sand molds, Michigan-based Marquette Castings uses ceramic molds formed around a wax pattern. This allows them to cast thinner pieces that are smooth right out of the mold, inside and out. Marquette Castings produces some of the cleanest castings I have ever seen.

What I Like:
The lightly etched surface is smooth enough to let your eggs slide around, but is easy to season and stays seasoned.
Small pour spouts are a great middle ground between large pour spouts and no pour spouts at all.
Handle has a nice angle to it right before it attaches to the skillet.
