The iconic French Skillet is a staple throughout the world.  Featuring a higher lip with a rounded curve, the Athena French Skillet is designed for the “One Skillet Dinner” and is sure to be the coveted heirloom for generations to come.  The unique responsiveness of forged carbon steel allows the skillet to sear better than cast iron, then quickly drop temperatures to deglaze the pan and simmer delicate sauces.   Ideal for dishes like pan fried chicken, curries, and meatballs, the Athena French Skillet is built to elevate dishes for years to come.


The 12 ½” French Skillet handles anything you throw at it and feeds the whole family.  Featuring a hand forged second handle to aid with weight and balance, this skillet is perfect for searing proteins and finishing them the sauce of choice.  This skillet is large enough to fry bacon, sear 4 chicken breasts, and handle a Dutch baby.  Unlike many pans of this size, the hand forged carbon steel construction of Athena’s 12 ½” French Skillet results in vastly superior heat distribution for even cooking every time.
