Learn & Inspire: Quality Craftsmanship


Quality Craftsmanship

At Vermont Castings, we’re all about the details. Known for our beautiful cast iron products, we take special care to achieve the very best quality at every step in the manufacturing process.
  1. Hand-crafted DesignMaster pattern makers refine every pattern by hand to ensure aesthetic detail and a precision fit.
  2. Thoughtfully ConstructedOur iron is a carefully calibrated combination of elements to assure the highest quality. This is maintained through hourly audits of the molten iron’s chemical make-up.
  3. Naturally Molded Our iron is poured into a mold of natural sand and clay. The sand is the finest glacial sand in the world, and is precisely mixed with clay and sea coal to ensure its smoothness and cohesion in order to maintain the integrity of our design. The sand is pressed against the pattern “tool” for each individual mold and is reused again and again to minimize waste.
  4. Precision PourAt our foundry, we understand that creating a beautiful cast iron product is a complicated process that requires attention to detail. Our sophisticated manufacturing technology ensures the highest quality and lasting beauty of our cast iron products. We work hard to control the speed of the pour, the opening of the mold and make sure the molten iron is maintained at an optimal temperature. This helps us avoid any pits or bubbles in the cast iron and ensures long-lasting, beautiful quality.
  5. Extra Fine Surface FinishTo ensure a beautiful enameled finish, we use the preferred old world method of achieving the smoothest surface possible. Our cast iron parts are sent through a blasting process to clean a microscopically thin layer of iron off the casting. This way, the enamel has a smooth, clean surface to adhere too, creating the beautiful, high-gloss finish that makes our Vermont Castings products so beautiful.
