The Sumpter

The Sumpter


The hiss and squeal of a steam engine still breaks the silence of the historic ghost town of Sumpter, Oregon. Built as a narrow gauge to better navigate the twists and turns of the mountain terrain, rail line restoration was begun in the 1970's as a remembrance of the colorful wild west mining and logging history of this remote corner of NE Oregon. 

Limited Availability! Two 13" Sumpter skillets currently available.

Your new hand-forged carbon steel skillet has been pre-seasoned for you with an elegant dark blue heat patina. The fine grained carbon steel is naturally non-stick with no chemical coatings! A darker patina will develop over time enhancing the natural non-stick properties of the steel.

Clean your skillet after cooking and with hot water and a soft dishcloth. If bits of food have dried on remove with a hot water soak and a dishcloth. Do not use soap or abrasives as these can remove the seasoning. 

Dry the skillet thoroughly by warming on a burner to drive off all water. Apply a thin shine of vegetable oil with a cloth and you are done!

 Acidic foods may remove some of the seasoning coat. This will not harm your pan. Clean as usual and continue using to rebuild the patina.
