FINEX Cast Iron

FINEX Cast Iron

At FINEX, their appreciation for and commitment to cast iron runs deep. They consider themselves cast iron specialists who polish their smooth, easy-to-release cook surface to leave more food on your plate and less in the skillet; they make their castings thicker to optimize modern searing techniques that seal in flavors; and they add ergonomic spring handles that stay cooler so you can easily grip the pan while cooking.

FINEX believes in the inherent power and goodness of heirloom quality cookware and the cooking traditions and stories it can hold. All of their products are designed to endure years of regular use while preparing meals that connect us to our food and our family histories. Good Forever. FINEX will gladly replace any FINEX cast iron product that ever fails due to honest use.

The Cristel System

Artichoke is the only midwest store outside Chicago that carries this amazing cookware system. We have tested it extensively and simply love it.

The Cristel system allows you to remove the handles for storage and to put them in the dishwasher. Because the handles are interchangeable you can make a Sauté Pan a Serving Casserole or store it without handles to maximize space. An entire set of cookware can be stored in a single drawer, a real plus for urban dwellers short on space!

Cookware: Revol Chicken Roaster (960x630)


Jens H. Quistgaard, whose vision helped define the Scandinavian Modern style, designed the original Kobenstyle series for Dansk in 1956. Elegant and durable, the newly re-introduced line maintains the beautiful shapes, the signature stay-cool handles, and the vivid colors of those first pieces. Updated for today’s kitchen, contemporary improvements mean a thicker enamel coating, stronger bonding of the enamel to the steel core, and completely coated edges that resist chipping. A classic stove-to-table design, the characteristic lid doubles as a trivet, making each piece of Dansk Kobenstyle just as much a pleasure to use in the kitchen as in the dining room.
