FAQ: Why spend $99 on a Fonte pan when I can get a cast iron skillet for $20 at a camping disposal store?

   That's a LOT of extra benefits for say $80 extra investment.......click pic to go to Kickstarter for more detail.

It's always a personal choice of course. And it's not just a question of value, but values.....

Knowing what I know about materials and global manufacturing, I personally wouldn't cook for my family on import iron from questionable sources. I'd pay extra for a trustworthy source of pure, clean heavy-metal-free iron.

I'd also pay extra for a well-designed cast iron pan, with a long and comfortable stay-cool handle.

Then there's the pride in owning a collectible piece of Australian manufacturing history, not a no-name import. There's a lot of value in intangibles like pride, I believe.

There's only one pan available with all of those significant benefits, and more.

And if it's $80 more, that's great investment over a multi-century lifespan, I believe.

Best Regards,

Mark.
