I know these have been discontinued, but I have 1 piece, which I bought from a local kitchen supply retailer, and the cast iron handle has a clear coat of some kind over it. Recently, I was able to find a 10 piece set with the cast iron handles, but the handles don't have a clear coat finish over them, which I assume would help prevent rust.
Does anyone have any ideas what kind of clear coat was used to cover the handles on these? I really love the piece I have with the clear coat over the cast iron handles, and I'd like to make all the other pieces I have similar. Anyone have any ideas?
