Common Questions:

When will my favorite state be available?

When your state hits 500 subscribers, it moves into our development process! You have the power to help move your state up in popularity by sharing the subscriber opportunity with all your friends, family & cast iron comrades.

How do I know when my state will be ready for development?

Anyone subscribed to a particular state will start receiving emails regarding progress reports and development schedules once that state’s list reaches 500 subscribers. This is an exclusive list that keeps you involved with our behind-the-scenes news and access to promotional offers on early production runs of the new skillets before it hits the main stream market.

How long does the development process take?

New skillet development typically takes us 6 months, given everything runs smoothly.  From the day we start designing, to when they are in production and moving through our seasoning process, there are as many as 100,000 variables that can determine how smoothly a new product gets rolled out! Read more about our development process on “The Front Burner” blog post here:  http://americanskilletcompany.com/blog/takes/

Why don't you have all of the states developed yet?

Consequently, industrial manufacturing requires a pretty hefty capital investment before each state skillet can be successfully created. Being a Skillet Subscriber is a meaningful and effective way for us to gauge public interest on which state skillets will receive our limited resources for development. To help make your favorite state happen, simply subscribe to that state and then tell your friends to do the same!  First one to 500 gets put into consideration for development. Make sure to jump onto our promotional pre-order opportunities when that becomes available to help us *actually* turn your favorite state into a “Skillet Reality!”.  The power is in your hands!!

I saw another company with all the cast iron states already available. Why can't I order the one I want on your site?

The original idea for cast iron state shaped skillets started with American Skillet Company’s founder and artisan-in-residence Alisa Toninato, also of FeLion Studios. Read all about her cast iron art piece map of the contiguous USA, and how the idea eventually became the seed for the American Skillet Company here:  http://americanskilletcompany.com/our-story/felions-story/

Can I suggest where the pan handle will go onto new state skillet designs?

We always love hearing your opinions and thoughts about the topic of pan handles and skillets! However, don’t hold it against us for too long if we don’t produce things exactly to your suggestions :}  Read all about our meticulous design process and why we make certain choices here, on “The Front Burner” blog post: http://americanskilletcompany.com/blog/takes/ . A special blog post dedicated just to “pan-handle states” is also found here: http://americanskilletcompany.com/blog/making-oklahoma/

Why is the handle located on the bottom or side of my favorite state skillet? How can I hang it in the up right orientation using a nail?

Our solution to the hanging / display conundrum is to try our nifty little Magnetic Hangers. They are *freakishly* strong neodymium magnets set into a maple wood block that is smaller than all of our skillets. It’s a simple yet effective way for you to hang any cast iron skillet that we make or that you already have, up to 8 lbs of iron on the wall for display.
