Skillets in the shapes of each of the continental states of the USA

FeLion Studios, an ironmonger with style, has made a set of 48 interlocking "Made in America" skillets, in the shape of each of the continental states. Buy them one at a time or get the whole set (which, admittedly, would probably be a little impractical to store in most kitchens -- it's 500lbs including a maple mounting block).

Exclusively from the den of FeLion Studios, comes the 48 cast iron skillets of the “Made In America” original state-pan art piece. Now available for individual pre-sale, every skillet from the “Made In America” series fits together with the surrounding states, making these items fun to collect and build your own geographic regions of functional skillets !

Enjoy being the life of a party by hamming up your favorite baked and fried delights with state-shaped proportion! FeLion Studio’s cast iron art is a functional example of design concept meeting utility with a fun and social emphasis.

Buy “Made in America” Skillets


  1. This is a good idea: it’ll help Americans develop a sense of pride in their country…

    /I keed!

    Seriously, though, did you price out all the States’ skillets?  It’d cost what, $20,000 to $25,000 for the whole set, plus $35 x 48, if you want them seasoned.

    1. I suspect that snooty coastal people would just buy their state pans and ignore all the fry-over states.

  2. They have failed to use the built-in panhandles in Florida and Oklahoma. For shame!  

    1. That is absolutlelelyey STUPID with a capital STU.  Who in their right mind designing state shaped skillets would overlook natural PAN HANDLES?!?!!? dumb asses.  Maker Memberships REVOKED!!!

  3. Say one thing for my home state of North Dakota, it makes a useful skillet.  

    1.  As a Minnesotan-raised individual who was born in Fargo, ND was my first thought when I saw this headline.

    1. Actually the little ones are kind of cute. You could make state pancakes in them. 

      Now Texas, that’s a big skillet. However the hilarity of frying eggs two fisted over a massive flame in a 21×22 in Texas shaped skillet is just about as perfect a comment on Texas as ever needs to be made.

      1.  Cornbread, I’d guess.  Need a lot of bacon fat to make that cornbread right.  Or maybe some hippy vegan thingo like coconut oil, given the skilled in question…

  4. South Carolina of all places looks useful, while it isn’t surprising that Texas is  even more impractical than California. 
    You can’t see it on the photo, but the Kansas skillet is badly damaged in its upper right corner.  Topeka. 
    Why is the Alaska waste bin not included in the offer? 
    Hawaiʻi would make a neat set for pu-pus. 

    But seriously, they’re pretty cool for a mass-produced(?) art piece. 
    They’d look good on my kitchen wall.

    1. The site claims that they’re individually made to order, which presumably accounts for the 6-8 weeks for delivery.

  5. No District of Columbia pan, I see, but DC’s geography might be included in the Maryland pan. 

    Trying to get retrocession in the back door, are they?

  6. Its our bad that the image is quite small. Need a wall-size one in every home so that the next generations habitually learn about the geographic locations of every states. Good idea.

    1. I just love watching him do that trick.

      It’s also Interesting that I now live in a panhandle region of Texas, since one of the handles sticks out of Galveston bay. And amazing detail there on Maryland, though all that coastline will be hell to clean if you burn something. 

  7. Okay since this is the CONTINENTAL United States, where is the ALASKA skillet?   Alaska in part of the “continental” US since it is on the same continent, that being North America.  Hawaii on the other hand is out of luck.

    1. “Hawaii on the other hand is out of luck.”

      We hear that often here.

      1. But you see, Alaska comes with the added bonus of a built-in panhandle, just like Florida.

    2. “Continental” is in Cory’s headline, not on the website. These are actually the 48 contiguous states of the U.S.

      That said, the website does use the term “lower 48” on the “Geographic Compositions” page, and while the intended meaning of that is clear, it’s not entirely accurate, considering that Hawaii is even lower. Ah well.

      (Practically, Alaska would be enormous, and Hawaii would be hard to manage as a single skillet, so I suppose I can see why they’re left out…)

      1.  Lower numbers.  Don’t confuse southern with low. 
        Alaska and then Hawaii got statehood last. 

  8. I thought the GA one might make a perfect gift for my hard-to-buy-for parents …. then when I saw the price I thought I’ll just buy them a small island instead.

  9. Rhode Island Skillet

    Length: 2.125 in.

    Width: 2 in.

    Weight: 10 oz.

    That’s not cookware, that’s a rather heavy brooch.

  10. I remember the “midwest” version of this, back before she started the rest of the 48, hanging on the wall at the late Underground Kitchen on the Capitol Square in Madison. Unsurprisingly, it was one of the things that survived the fire that closed the business. (Though I think most of the actual fire damage was on the upper floors.)

  11. For the prices they’re charging, you’d think they’d at least finish them better.  As it looks from their web site, the cast iron is completely “raw,” with lots of imperfections and no machining of the surfaces.  They just pour the molten metal into the molds, and it’s “done.”  If I want that level of “craftsmanship,” I can get it from Lodge for about $25.

  13. Pretty useful. There should be a restaurant that offers you a RI omelet as a side dish or a TX omelet if you’re really hungry.
