AN AMERICAN TRADITION, REINVENTED.
The FINEX journey began with the search for healthier cooking. They wanted a pan that would provide a soulful cooking experience and look good while doing it. Through trial and error, they found that the quality of current cast iron cookware didn’t measure up. They became obsessed with the intentional design, quality and craftsmanship of antique cast iron cookware—and decided they would stop at nothing to build it on American soil. FINEX wanted to build functional, durable cookware that’s better than anything on the market today
FINEX is a small team of craftspeople, cooks and designers based out of Portland, Oregon, U.S.A., and are dedicated to crafting quality cookware that will stand the test of time. Their work is inspired by the hardworking history of American cast iron and grounded in their belief that cooking should be genuine – an experience you value and share with others. It’s these simple ideals that guide FINEX to reinvent cast iron cookware with modern design to enhance the life of every cook. Their work ethic is a bit outdated. They polish metals by hand and season the cast iron the slow way. While the production may reflect old-fashioned techniques, FINEX boasts a range of ultra-modern designer cast iron cookware pieces. FINEX believe the things you use every day should be beautiful, guaranteed for life, and 100% American made. Portland is home to one of the largest collections of cast-iron architecture in the USA, dating back to the 1850s. This spirit has carried on through the decades and is an essential part of FINEX’s DNA today. Their small team is passionate about crafting cast iron cookware that lives up to our “Good Forever” guarantee with Portland’s foundry tradition in tow.
