The current cast iron on my stovetop is my Finex collection:
FINEX has a form that will fit today’s and futuristic architecture and design. FINEX Cast Iron are truly heirloom quality pieces. They currently come in a No.12, No.10, No.8 skillets. There is a No.10 grillet, and lids for the No.12 and No.10 skillets. In addition there is also a rosewood trivet.
2016 FINEX introduced a 12″ TWIN SPRING GRILL PAN & 1 QT. SAUCE POT.
I am such a self proclaimed fanboy that I use social media platforms and this blog to promote their high quality wares in the hopes that when the FINEX Cake Pan is released some day; that one out of the first batch comes straight to Cookingyo.com (Hint, Hint Mike @ FINEX), moving on.
It has a molder’s mark of 12-19-14. I have never seen a molder’s mark on another FINEX skillet in all of the many pictures out there on the internet.
This pan was part of the 8 inch Kickstarter campaign from FINEX . I bought the package that had the No.12 with lid, The No.8, and the Rosewood FINEX trivet.

This is a great all around skillet. Just don’t let the probies at the firehouse try and clean it. I would like it to last! It is older then any active fire station we have in my city being the skillet is aleast 125 years old.
