She is the co-founder and strategic advisor to the start-up business of cast iron cookware. It all started with Jinyoung Kang and her sister in law, who were in need of some cast iron but unsatisfied with all new products on the market. The new product perfectly functional and colorful, it did not have the style and romance of the old pans. A question was born: why don’t they make them like they used to? After numerous prototypes, Jinyoung Kang and sister in law were finally able to launch a Mommy’s pot in March, South Korea. The Mommy’s pot is a meticulously designed smoother, lighter cast iron pan reminiscent of the best vintage Korean skillets—but with a modern twist.
