Old school aluminium cookware, cast iron handle - where can I find it?
Hi, can any of you tell me where I could find heavy gauge aluminium cookware with a cast iron handle, preferably a large, fairly deep saute pan? Think they are fairly retro nowadays, they appear in older cookery clips in commercial kitchens usually. Does anybody still make it?
Thanks in advance for any help!
New aluminum saute w/ CI handle isn't going to be easy. If cast SS handles are OK (stay even cooler than CI), try http://www.webstaurantstore.com/vendo...
If you must have Al+CI, I think you'll have to scrounge. Some early 20th C French makers (e.g., Mauviel, Jaquotot, Gaillard) made some really good, thick aluminum pans with CI handles, but they are very hard to find.
