Casted Locally

Austin Foundry is a proud, family-owned-and-operated foundry in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Established in 1946, we produce quality gray & ductile iron castings. For over 75 years, our customers have relied upon us for personalized service, exceptional quality, and meticulous attention to detail.

One of our passions happens to be cooking and that warm feeling of “home” you can only get from gathering around the table to enjoy a delicious meal. Since we own a foundry, it seemed only natural to create a division that produces the kind of cast iron cookware we’d want to use ourselves, and that’s how Austin Foundry Cookware came to be.
We wanted to create something that embodied our family legacy in every way, combining the hard work and commitment of past generations with today’s innovations. From concept and design to the final product, every piece of Austin Foundry Cookware is handcrafted, finished in our foundry, and built to endure. Every piece of our cookware is poured and finished by our own hands. Our attention to detail guarantees a product that’s exceptional in every way. Our patented skillet design offers superior leverage and ease of handling, and once you try it, we’re sure you’ll agree – this is the last cast iron skillet you’ll ever need to purchase.
In the end, it all comes down to family. When you think about it, many of our most cherished memories are made in the kitchen. Whether it’s family meals, holiday gatherings, or cooking for your dearest friends, food’s usually involved. We cook together, laugh, and regale each other with recollections of meals and memories we’ve had – and that, our friends, is truly the spice of life. Our handcrafted cookware is meant to last, so it’s not hard to get lost in those thoughts, imagining all those moments unfolding over time. The fact that we get to be part of your family’s traditions is a point of pride for us and something we’d never take for granted.

From our family to yours, we invite you to discover Austin Foundry Cookware. Our cookware is a product of our commitment and legacy for your next culinary creation.

About Us

Meet Sean & Lisa

Hi! Nice to meet you virtually. We are glad you visited our website to learn more about us and our brand. We’re Sean and Lisa, a business-owning, dog-loving, married couple from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA. As you may notice, our life is anything but ordinary. Sean is the owner and Vice President of Austin Foundry, while Lisa is a stylist and owner of a hair salon. Together, we became the visionaries behind the Austin Foundry Cookware brand. Sean has personally designed the patented cast iron skillets, while Lisa is in charge of customer correspondence, social media, packaging, and shipping the skillets worldwide. Our passion for delicious food has turned a hobby into a lifestyle, cooking everything from cookies to scallops in cast iron. When not at the foundry or salon, we find ourselves chasing after Norm (the storm), Charlie, and Tripp. Those three are our fur babies and keep us both active and lighthearted.
