The clean, functional Sarpaneva casserole represents the ultimate in modern Scandinavian design. The cast iron material and detachable wooden handle 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 cast iron body ensures slow, even cooking both on the stove and in the oven. The interior enamel surface makes for easy cleaning and minimizes retention of any odors or flavors. The entire pot may be lifted with the curved wooden handle, which also doubles as a way to lift the lid without burnt fingers. Makes for a truly thoughtful gift.
Timo Sarpaneva, 1960
