Made in America Skillets Might Not Be Practical, But They Sure Are Neat! Beth Snyder July 9, 2012 Extras I would never claim to be a professional chef, or even a cook. But I do thoroughly enjoy cooking, and by all accounts I'm pretty good at it. By association, I have this fascination with kitchen gadgets and whatnot, whether I see something I think is brilliant, or silly, or useful, or completely ridiculous. Even though I hate (abhor, really) shopping, I can spend hours in a kitchen store. So when I saw these, I thought...hey, if I had unlimited disposable income, I would buy each and every one of them, because the picture just looks neat! Some of them you could even use if you wanted, but I'd probably just hang them on the wall. A very, very big wall. Each skillet is hand-made out of cast iron by FeLion Studios. They are stamped with their logo as well as a production number, since these are understandably a very limited item. They are shipped raw (unseasoned), unless you want to spring an extra $30.00 US per pan for seasoning (trust me, it's way more fun to cook bacon repeatedly to season a pan). They each come with a custom-designed magnetic holder for easy wall display. Each pan is made to order, and ships around 6-8 weeks after the order is placed. You can buy individual pans, or they do offer geographical area compositions. You've probably guessed this by now, but pretty much no one can afford these. The price varies by state, depending on how big it is and how much detail it needs. Rhode Island (Length: 2.125 in.; Width: 2 in.; Weight: 10 oz.) comes in cheapest at $150.00 US, while Texas (Length: 22.25 in.; Width: 21.5 in.; Weight: 30 lbs.) is going to cost you a whopping $2500.00 US. Most of the states fall in the $400.00 to $750.00 range. Shipping is a whole other story...you have to contact the artist to find out how much it'll cost. Some of the smaller states' prices include shipping, though, so you never know. Source: FeLion Studios Share This With The World!
