With a wooden handle and a cast iron body, this ultimate design classic is as functional in the kitchen as it is appealing on the dining table. Combining design usability with a traditional cast iron pot, Sarpaneva’s inspiration came from his blacksmith grandfather. Designed so that food will cook evenly in both oven or stove top. Designed by Timo Sarpaneva for iittala in 1960. The Sarpaneva casserole is made of cast iron and ceramic. Hand wash only. Suitable with ceramic range, electric range, gas range and induction range.
