Re: Need Help Identifying This Pot\lid.

It's the top half of the Wagner Ware 5 star skillet set....circ.1941. The part you're missing has the WW logo and the cat. No 1403.

Re: What is This?

SJ. Just from what I can make out from your pic, it appears that your square skillet is a BSR. With that being said (and for the most part of all square skillets) they are much harder to clean...

Re: What is This?

SJ, Being in St. Paul, Min. is probably some of the problem (not that you can up and move to clean your CI) but cold temp's reduce the effectiveness of the lye solution. Since it appears that you...

Re: Griswold #10 Small Logo

Each to his own so to speak. I have been using Grapeseed Oil for over 5 years and no complaints at all. It has a "high" smoke point and is made from 100% seeds from grapes "NO ADDITIVES". Because of...

Re: Wards Cast Aluminum

You're correct about it being thin metal. The spout is formed as part of the body of the kettle and only the handle attachment is riveted to the kettle which I thought it was a cast piece. I was just...

Re: Griswold #14 Bailed Handle Skillet

No apologies necessary. Was just getting ready to say for a bailed #14 Griswold the $999 price would be a bargain. I was VERY lucky to walk away with the one I found and it was more than $999 lol.

Griswold #14 Bailed Handle Skillet

Was just wondering if anyone can verify if the Bailed #14 Griswold Skillet had a cover (lid) and if so did it just have the single "lid lip" at the 12 o'clock pour spout position? The BB doesn't...

Re: Magnalite Cast Aluminum
