The Iittala Sarpaneva Cast Iron Casserole can be used on the stove or in the oven. It is made of heavy iron with an enamel lining, to ensure slow, even cooking and easy cleaning. The curved wooden handle is detachable, so the lid or entire pot can be lifted without burning your fingers. Its design was inspired by Finnish folklore.
The Sarpaneva is a timeless classic that has been recognized as an international design icon. It was designed by Timo Sarpaneva (1926-2006), known as an international force in Finnish design. Timo collaborated extensively with Iittala. His Sarpaneva Casserole design was responsible for creating key hallmarks of Iittala’s style. He designed the “i” logo that serves as the symbol of the company.
