Baking tray pig iron burnished
Fine English style
(Not only) biscuits, scones or shortbread turn out particularly well on this baking tray. "Baking tray" would almost be the more appropriate term, we think, because the manufacturer in Shropshire spares nothing in the production of its solid baking base - and certainly not the material. The Netherton Foundry uses pig iron, which is rolled and burnished to protect it from corrosion, i.e. baked with linseed oil in cooking oil quality. So this baking sheet comes to you ready to use - usually all you need to do is grease the sheet a wafer-thin layer of cooking oil before placing the dough pieces on it. Only in the case of very sugary doughs do we recommend placing baking paper underneath to protect the pre-applied burnished layer. Either way, the raw iron perfectly absorbs, stores, and evenly distributes the heat of your oven: for wonderfully crumbly, delicately baked butter cookies and tea cakes that will do credit to any five o'clock tea. And not only that: eggplant slices, for example, cut thicker, lightly salted and brushed with olive oil, turn out just right crispy and simply taste like a summer vacation on the Mediterranean.
Burnished iron. Coated - without being coated
In Shropshire, where the beginning of industrialization has its historical roots and where the world's first iron bridge spanned a watercourse in 1779, the English iron foundry Netherton Foundry has been based for more than 30 years. As before, the production of iron objects is semi-industrial rather than fully automated. On the one hand, machines are used to shape the iron by casting, deep-drawing or spinning. On the other hand, many steps are still carried out by hand. The cookware is so thin-walled and light that one would not expect iron at first glance. At second glance, however, the surface shows a patina that is typical for the material, because in the Netherton Foundry each piece is still burnished, i.e. burned in with a fine layer of linseed oil (instead of acid). A process in which a so-called precious rust forms on the surface, which protects against further corrosion like a natural coating.
