About Mike Whitehead:
Mike Whitehead, founder of Portland’s FINEX Cast Iron Cookware, pretty much grew up with iron in his blood. Raised in his father’s metal fabrication and welding shop, he went on to become immersed in new product design as an engineering project manager at companies including Boeing, Leupold & Stevens Optics and Freightliner Trucks where he was never far from building with metal.
Inspired by his vintage cookware collection, he dreamt of bringing machine polished heirloom quality cast iron cookware back to America for the first time in over half a century. Today he is surrounded by a small team of perfectionists creating cookware that aspires to connect us to our food, our hands and our family histories. “Our goal is to put as much thought into what you cook in as you do in selecting what you cook in it,” says Mike.
