Anthony Bourdain, one of the coolest dudes in the world, took a visit to Borough Furnace--a metal casting workshop that individually handcrafts environmentally cautious skillets in small batches that take 6 to 7 hours to make from start to finish. It's a fascinating watch and further proof that Bourdain can make ANYTHING interesting.
Want to buy one of these after watching the video? Here's the 12" braising skillet, priced at $320.
And here's the 9" frying skillet, priced at $280. Both are valiant (and Bourdain approved) additions to any kitchen.
