Found this via Google books a couple months ago, but forgot to share here. The pages on grinding were especially interesting to me. It's work that a robot could easily do today, but no one is doing it.

Hi Rick, Nice read.

"It's work that a robot could easily do today, but no one is doing it."

My Sister threw out / lost a grill pan that was passed down to her by my Mother. I talked to her about it and she said.

I used it once, it was hard to clean, it started to get some rust on it, I think I gave it back to Mom.
Mom doesnt' have it. :frown:

We live in a throw away world.

Let your sister read this, she might remember where the pan is / went. :oops:

Thank you for posting that. The grinding article has given me hope that I can smooth the cooking surface on a post 1960 Wagner 2 quart DO. I'll post pictures if I am successful

But, it's still a Wagner, there won't be any more. Granted they made thousands upon thousands of them. Think of the children. Future collectors of old iron. Grind down one of these.

Yes - but if I smooth it out I will use it. It is the perfect size for a two person meal.

I had never seen this size Wagner dutch oven, then in one day I found two of them at two different shops. I am very confident smoothing the cooking surface won't harm them. Think of it as a hundred years of cooking in one afternoon. But if it doesn't work, I'll still have the second one.

But realistically, does a Dutch oven need smoothing? I know I'm not cooking eggs, making a burger or searing some fish in mine. I'm cooking a roast, a pot of chili, Black eyed peas... None of that sticks. Smooth, rough, I'm good to go.
