  • Pixie Pans

    Hi. Loved the first episode of Nigellissima and really loved the mini pixie pan used for Eggs in Purgatory. Can you please advise where such pans can be purchased? Many thanks.

    From the nigella team:

    The pixie pans used by Nigella are small cast iron skillets made by the US company Lodge. The pan itself is part of the Lodge Logic range and is a 3 1/2 inch miniature skillet (product no.LMS3) or you could try the 5 inch/12.5cm version (product no. L5MS3).

    The pan can be bought on-line in the US direct from Lodge and from some cookware stores but is a little more difficult to source in the UK. We understand that there are vendors from the US that may ship the pans to the UK, though the shipping charges can be quite high. Amazon and eBay are good websites for finding these vendors.

    A blini pan (or one egg frying pan, roughly 12cm diameter) would be a good alternative and these non-stick pans are available in many cookware stores and on-line in the UK.
