Timo Sarpaneva’s streamlined, functional Sarpaneva cast iron pot represents the ultimate in modern Scandinavian design. While the heavy cast iron material and oval shape draw their inspiration from ancient Finnish folklore, recalling shelter from the forest and cooking over a fire. The Sarpaneva’s iconic design status was commemorated in 1998 with a Finnish postage stamp. The heavy iron ensures slow, even cooking both on the stove and in the oven. Enamel surface guarantees easy cleaning and that no flavours stick to the pot. The side handles make it easy to lift the entire pot without burning one’s fingers.
