We are compiling a list of manufacturers, from large corporations and small companies down to individuals that produces and/or sells cast iron cookware made here in the United States.
This list may include items assembled from parts and materials 100% manufactured here in America, but some may also contain a percentage of materials produced outside the USA.

Some of the companies listed in this directory that produce cast iron cookware here in the USA, may also have them manufactured in other countries as well. Many businesses alter their brand names, manufacturing practices and product designs with little or no notice, so if there are still questions that remain, we suggest contacting the manufacturer directly.
Lodge Manufacturing Co. is the sole domestic producer of foundry seasoned cast iron cookware in the United States. Founded in 1896, the family owned company produces the largest selection of cast iron cookware on the market. With consumer demand now exceeding foundry capacity, Lodge has unveiled plans for a considerable expansion of their South Pittsburg plant. These will include new melting systems, sand systems, an additional molding line, and expanded seasoning lines. We are excited to be able to grow to new heights with our feet still firmly planted at home.
As the world entered a new century, Lodge reinvented the cookware world with Foundry Seasoned Cast Iron Cookware. Lodge sprays vegetable oil onto the cookware, then bakes it on at high temperatures to create a natural, easy-release cooking surface for everything from Skillets, to Grill Pans, Camp Dutch Ovens and our Restaurant quality serving pieces. Produced in our Tennessee foundry, the seasoning process won a 2003 Good Housekeeping “Good Buy Award,” leading to a world wide renaissance in Cast Iron Cooking!
