Looking for a brand of cast iron pans that is enameled on the outside, but with a bare iron interior. In other words no enamel, no ceramic, no non-stick on the inside. (so it is less likely to scratch an induction cooktop)

  • Many...very many. From £20 cheap to toe-curlingly expensive. You can get them anywhere - Aldi, Sainsbury's or any kitchen shop.

    @Trish Le Creuset doesn’t make any cookware with uncoated interiors, that I’m aware of.

  • BeccaCooks where in the world are you located, there may be a local manufacturer someone knows about.

    Enameling technology has traditionally prevented one-sided coatings because thermally-induced warping can damage the enamel. I assume it's possible to develop a functional pan without the enamel on the interior, but the results may be less consistently successful, and for the most part the point of enameling is to have the interior coated for easier use and cleanup. (That's also the point of seasoning a cast iron skillet, of course-- you always want the metal to have a coating of some sort.) See here for protecting the glass from cast iron.

Staub has cast iron enameled outside and bare iron inside

    Currently all of Staub’s pots, pans & even cast iron skillets that appear bare inside, actually have a matte black enameled coating.
