GRIZZLY Cast Iron Cookware

Meet the Makers, Katie and Kyle Caniglia, GRIZZLY Cookware co-founders living in Charlotte, NC. GRIZZLY Cookware is a veteran-owned, female-led, small business that designs and manufactures innovative cast iron cookware ~ the only nickel coated cast iron cookware in the market today.

Shop the 12 inch skillet, 10 inch skillet and the 10 inch casserole with handles to add to your well informed kitchen. Don’t forget to register for leather handle covers, handle wraps and potholders to keep from burning your hands while cooking! 

A significant piece of their origins story is a sense of place, heavily influenced by where they called home when the journey of crafting GRIZZLY Cookware began.  “In part, GRIZZLY Cookware was born from an appreciation for, and desire to celebrate, the centuries-old bond between Southern cuisine and cast-iron cooking”, explains Kyle, a U.S. Army veteran.  Today, GRIZZLY is grateful to have roots in North Carolina as well as South Carolina, Wisconsin and Georgia.

“We’re so proud to bring innovation to the cast iron cookware space by combining our passions for cooking and crafting quality American-made products, with our expertise in electroless nickel. We've worked hard to ensure that all of the attributes beloved by cast iron enthusiasts (like us) remain central to the experience of cooking with GRIZZLY. Heat retention, even heat distribution, and versatility keep top billing while our background and expertise with EN (electroless nickel) have allowed us to improve upon the care and clean-up side of things."

GRIZZLY Cookware never has to be seasoned (or more importantly stripped and re-seasoned), offers no flavor transference (so you can go from catfish to cobbler in the same skillet after a quick rinse), and our cast iron doesn’t require maintenance due to rust.

"The goal of our innovation was to simplify the maintenance without sacrificing the magic...expanding the possibilities and accessibility of cast iron cooking.” Katie

Working closely with designers, engineers, academics, and manufacturers, GRIZZLY enlisted the help of top chefs to field test the inaugural 12-inch skillet in their restaurants. They also asked home cooks and outdoor enthusiasts to weigh in on versatility and ease-of-use. The feedback was unanimous. 

GRIZZLY Cookware is the toughest cast iron cookware made in America and it’s ready to handle the toughest environments. From the unforgiving pace of an industrial kitchen to the discerning palate of your southern grandmother, GRIZZLY holds up.
