To a person with a hammer, everything looks like a nail. To Scandinavian foundry Skeppshult, everything in the kitchen--not just frying pans--looks like something they can make out of their cast iron.
For instance, look at this spice mill with a walnut handle.
There is a lot of iron in this thing; it's probably so heavy you could use it as a self-defense weapon.
Salt & pepper shakers:
Salt cellar and pepper grinder:
Mortar and pestle:
Nutcracker, and it's all cast iron except the leather cord--the body is actually cast iron colored to look like walnut. I confess that I have no idea how you're meant to use this:
They also make, of course, at least a dozen varieties of cast iron pans. You can check out their selection here.
Fun fact: Skeppshult has been in business since 1906, and while they use old-school casting methods, all of the electricity they use in production comes from wind power and hydropower.
Another fun fact is that Skeppshult is probably the most common bicycle brand in their home country Sweden. No frills, solid bikes https://www.skeppshult.se/sv/
The nutcracker body is actual walnut, you put a nut into it and drop the cast iron weight onto it to crack it.
