The Sarpaneva cast iron pot, designed in 1960 by Finnish design legend Timo Sarpaneva, is a bona fide Scandinavian design classic. The heavy cast iron pot cooks food evenly both on the stove and in the oven, making it ideal for any hearty meal: stews, slow cooked bolognese or even a whole roast chicken.
The detachable wooden handle makes it easy to lift either the whole pot or only the lid without burning one’s fingers, while the enamel coating prevents food flavours from sticking to the pot’s surface, so the same pot can be used for a variety of dishes. The award-winning, streamlined casserole dish is the perfect piece of cookware for all friends of good food and modern Scandinavian design.
Timo Sarpaneva (1926-2006) was a Finnish designer who contributed to making Finnish design well-known in the world. He graduated from the Institute for Industrial Arts (the forerunner of the University of Arts and Design Helsinki) in 1948. Even though he was trained as a graphic designer, he spent the majority of his life working as an industrial designer.
