Re: Don't Show, Just Tell
 
1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned?

Lodge #8 or #10 skillet. Ex-wife has it now.

2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both?

I have cooked with almost all of my pieces, basically. I'm more a user than collector, but I'm becoming both. You can't really use 50+ pieces regularly.

3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting?

Iron Mountain #5 is what made me consider collecting all of the Iron Mountain series.

4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired?

Unmarked Vollrath #12 or the Blankenship Combo cooker lid/skillet. Don't remember which I bought first.

5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be?

Iron Mountain cast aluminum Chicken Pan or Fanner #8 Waffle Iron and base. It took too long and was too hard to finish finding see. I'm also from Cleveland, sentimental.

6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list".

A. Iron Mountain complete collection of all items made.

B. Griswold #11 & #13 skillets

C. Vintage German cake pan (Bundt) with swirled or unique design.

40 years ago I think it was a #10 Wagner
More of a user but really both
Griswold #8, and 2 Griswold waffle irons
Not sure yet but I think my #14 Griswold skillet
The 14 skillet "
If Im remembering measurement correctly a 29 Griswold griddle, older the better CI, the spider would be cool

1. Unmarked #3 size skillet possibly made by Blackl@@ck. I don't remember how I acquired it, where it is now, or when I ever used it, but I am certain that it may be a Blackl@@ck (lol).
2. Both. I am a newbie collector, and I am a lousy cook who enjoys using my vintage CI.
3. Victor #7 Skillet P/N 721B with an upside down raised #7 on the handle. I like its low walls and light weight. I am partial to "misfits," my term for CI with casting errors, such as the Monday Morning Martin #3 Hamburger Logo Skillet and the Monday Morning Lodge Upside Down #3 Skillet, and the Wagner National misspelled "Natonal" P/N 1359C Skillet.
4. Wapak Chickenfoot #8 Skillet
5. Martin #9 Hamburger Logo Skillet. It's a nice size to make spaghetti sauce and chili.
6. Wagner National misspelled "Natonal" P/N 1359C Skillet, Victor #6 Skillet, Martin Bacon Fryer Skillet

The following Piqua Favorite Smiley pieces - a DO, a round flat griddle and a chicken fryer and lid

Can you tell I'm a fan of Smileys? :p
