The Sarpaneva pot is a classic piece of Finnish cookware design, so famous that it once graced one of Finland's postage stamps. Inspired by his blacksmith grandfather, Timo Sarpaneva designed the cast-iron Sarpaneva pot in 1960. Functional and beautiful, the Sarpaneva pot goes seamlessly from oven to table.
The 3 quart Sarpaneva cast-iron casserole with wooden handle is a timeless design masterpiece and perfect in the kitchen where the wooden handle detaches to be used to lift the lid and the pot. The Sarpaneva pot was awarded the silver medal at the 1960 Milan Triennial and is manufactured by Iittala in Finland.
