Victor’s cast iron skillets
DESIGN IS A PART OF OUR EVERYDAY LIFE. COFFEE CUPS, RAIN COATS, BAGS, LAMPS, HEIRLOOMS. DESIGN IS THE THINGS WE LIVE WITH AND LIVE IN.
Victor’s been a foodie since he was six years old. Today he’s 30, and famous within his family for always discovering new flavors.
In his teens, Victor discovered cast iron cookware through a cooking show with the Danish Michelin chef, Thomas Rode. You can’t really cook a good steak in a normal frying pan. You need a glowing hot skillet in order to get the best sear without ruining the meat by overcooking it. Victor was 17 years old when he bought his first cast iron skillet, and it wouldn’t be his last.
His collection has skillets from the French brand Le Creuset and the Danish brand Eva Solo – he doesn’t really care about the brand name – only the material. An iron cast skillet can endure very high temperatures, have high durability and hardly ever burn the food. Avoid using soap on the iron surface, and your skillet can last the next 500 years, remarks Victor, and gets the stove ready for frying a couple of eggs.
