Pie Irons & Cast Iron Cookware
What's a Pie Iron? A Pie Iron is a way to cook a toasted sweet or savory sandwiches or pie over an open fire. This is done by using a cast iron cooking compartment that is formed by two metal castings that hinge together like a clam shell. To use, butter the inside of your pie iron, place a slice of bread in and add your ingredients (pie filling and preserves, chocolate, cheese etc..) Add the second slice of bread and close up the iron. Trim off any extra bread and then place over the campfire or firepit for a few minutes on each side until you have a tasty toasted pudgy pie.
We first designed our Pie Irons back in 1964 to be used over an open campfire, but these days people are just as likely to use them over the backyard firepit or on a bbq grill. Most of our pie irons have long rods and wood handles that are permanently attached to the iron for durability, however we also have a few short handled designs that unscrew for packability and use over a camping stove.
Our 60 year legacy gives you the comfort in knowing that in buying a Rome Pie Iron you'll be buying from the only company that has been living and breathing Pie Iron cooking for 3 generations. We actually use the products that we develop and sell and are passionate about spreading the joy of making pudgy pies over the fire!
