Established in 2018 in New York City, Great Jones creates joy and confidence in home cooking through its smart yet stylish kitchenware designs. The company is most recognized for its colorful, enameled cast-iron Dutch oven (The Dutchess), non-stick and non-toxic frying pans, playful “Holy Sheet” sheet pans, and patterned bakeware — all with patented designs that move from stove to oven to table with ease. Loyal and notable Great Jones fans include David Chang, Christina Tosi, Molly Baz, Kwame Onwuachi, Molly Yeh, and Jake Cohen, among many others. This winter, CEO and co-founder Sierra Tishgart and the company’s team will expand their product offerings significantly and launch their first major retail partnership — continuing to expand Great Jones well beyond the stovetop.
After working as a food editor at New York Magazine for five years, running around nightly to every new restaurant, Great Jones founder Sierra Tishgart wanted to spend more time at home, cooking and taking better care of herself. She needed to upgrade her kitchenware (no more Teflon!), and had trouble figuring out what she actually needed and why — even with the privilege of knowing so many talented chefs and cookbook authors in the industry. She wanted personalized guidance. She wanted pieces that would last. She wanted them to be beautiful. Tishgart wanted to be able to reasonably purchase them for herself, instead of waiting to receive them as a wedding present. And she wanted someone to hold her hand through the process and make the experience of outfitting her kitchen joyful and fun — Great Jones seeks to be that helping hand.
