FAQ

Why choose GRIZZLY Cookware?

GRIZZLY Cookware is the only choice when you want the benefits of cast iron cooking without any of the hassle or high maintenance. Cast iron cooking has been highly regarded for centuries for high heat retention, durability, versatility, and the classic beauty of the craft. However, these attributes have been overshadowed by the high maintenance issues including required and repeated seasoning, rusting, flavor transference, and frequent, rigorous hand washing. GRIZZLY’s ease of use and simplicity of care has revolutionized the cast iron cookware industry.

What is the Nickel Coating?

Electroless nickel plating has been used across all industries including medical, aerospace, defense and automotive for decades. The process involves plating a nickel-phosphorous coating onto a substrate by chemical reduction. Unlike electroplated coatings, EN is applied without externally applied current. This chemical process avoids many of the problems associated with most metallic coatings while providing many unique characteristics.

Nickel vs. enamel coated cast iron?

GRIZZLY Cookware’s nickel coated cast iron is just as safe as enamel coated cast iron but will not chip if dropped or overheated. Once enamel coatings chip on cast iron, there is potential for rust and bacteria to develop. Our nickel coating offers a seamless finish.

Is the nickel coating safe?

Yes. The use of nickel as a coating for food-contact surfaces has been around for many years and is approved by the FDA. Additionally, our proprietary plating process meets or exceeds medical grade specifications and abides by the RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) directive. We test our skillets using an independent laboratory to ensure we exceed the FDA guidelines for contact with heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury.

Is GRIZZLY Cookware dishwasher safe?

For best results, we recommend hand washing your GRIZZLY. Using a dishwasher may result will not impact the performance of your GRIZZLY, but you may see temporary discoloration from soap and water spots.

DO NOT USE BLEACH OR BLEACH PRODUCTS TO CLEAN.

To keep your GRIZZLY Cast Iron Cookware in good working order, be sure to allow it to cool down prior to cleaning. All cast iron (coated or not) is prone to cracking it if is cooled too quickly. Please do not place your hot GRIZZLY directly on cold surfaces or under cold water. Soap and sponges are safe to use. Sometimes foods with high levels of nitrates (e.g. bacon, pork, root vegetables) can leave brown stains that are hard to remove. This is completely normal and does not affect the cooking performance of your GRIZZLY Cookware. If you want to remove the stains, start by scrubbing with a sponge, soap and hot water. For particularly stubborn stains, try a bottle of Bar Keepers Friend and an ultra-fine Scotch Brite pad.

 

Does it need to be seasoned?

GRIZZLY Cookware is coated which seals the cast iron, making it resistant to rusting. This means you never have to season your GRIZZLY Cookware.

Does GRIZZLY Cookware come with a warranty?

Yes. All of our cookware comes with a limited lifetime warranty. If our cookware fails to perform as promised due to a product defect we will repair or replace it. To be eligible for this warranty, you must be the original owner (proof of purchase may be required) and the cookware cannot be damaged by misuse, improper maintenance, self-repair, or tampering.
