Commissions

So you like what we are working on, but looking for something more specific? Great! We are your one-stop-shop for creating custom cast iron cookware and accessories. From small “one-off” runs to large scale production, we inspire new directions in cookware design by thinking differently about conventions. We specialize in making graphic, unique, narrative and functional heirlooms by creating an experience that speaks to your restaurant, company gifting efforts, and personal brand. Connect with me using the form below and tell me more details about your project:

  • Drawings: Do you have files, logos, napkin sketches, just an idea? We have 3-D modeling capabilities in house, however vector file formats are preferred. (DXF, DWG, EPS, AI, SVG)

  • Quantity: How many castings will you need? *Try to project the lifetime of this product, it will help us determine what kind of tooling we need to build for you. Is it a long term production part, limited / one-off runs,..etc? 

  • Lead Time: Is there a specific deadline for this project? *We generally request 4-6 months for custom production times after project proposals are signed. In some cases, we can provide rush processing.

  • Packaging: Will these need to be POP ready, or nestled into gift boxes? Tell us what you need and we’ll make it happen.

  • Budget: Serious inquiries are more fun for everyone. Custom cookware is no flash in the pan, so if $5,000*+ scares you, maybe meditate on your request before reaching out. (*not every project we do requires this amount, but typical pattern + production costs exceed this quite often.)

*WAFFLE MAKER INQUIRIES: We do not currently have an electric appliance option for custom waffle designs. Because of the severe IP and safety hazards associated with “hacking” existing electric waffle makers, we are only making a grill top / burner plate style of custom waffle designs. If you are looking for an electric appliance option for your custom design needs, please fill out the contact form below, and you will be added to our wait list to develop a custom appliance. (Arrival date to market: TBD)

I look forward to making something special with you.

Thanks!
