Re: Wagner Aluminum 'sauce Pans'

They don't look to be in too much need of restoration. Aluminum oxidation wouldn't be black. Some kind of carbon build-up. Dawn Power Dissolver, HTF these days, would be my first thing to try.

Re: Pressure Cooker?

There are no 4-notch Lodge skillets to my knowledge; the handle on this one, despite the variations seen in them, doesn't look like Lodge, either. I have seen a 4-notch Lodge DO, though.

Re: My First #14 Non Logo Griswold

Most likely (very) late 1950s to early 1960s.

Re: My First #14 Non Logo Griswold

Not an actual Griswold. Made in the Wagner Ohio plant after the acquisition of Griswold by the company that already owned Wagner. Several Griswold patterns were altered to remove all, or most in this...

Re: Pressure Cooker?

Just a Wagner hammered dutch oven with a lid thermometer. Pressure cooking would require a locking lid with a sealing mechanism.

Re: Indoor Lye Tank?

Even with the sturdiest, most tight-fitting container, I believe there may still be drawbacks. Removing items in process involves some drippy messiness. The odor while the container is open can be...

Re: Need Help Identifying This Pot\lid.

The deeper set was called a "Combination Fryer-Roaster", c/n 1402-T. The easiest way to distinguish its parts, from afar, from the 5-Star Skillet Set parts is the 5-Star's handles "droop" while the...

Re: Pam for Seasoning

It does work as an initial manual seasoning, and there are those who swear by it. Whether you want to try it depends on your opinion(s) re: dimethyl silicone (the anti-foaming agent), palm oil...

Re: BSR

Appears to just indicate they needed more patterns than 26 single letters would allow for. Double letter (or a letter and a number) patterns are seen in both the older hand pour Red Mountain and the...

Re: Earlier Lodge Chef Skillet

Skillets with that marking style are generally dated ca. 1965 - ca. 1987. It's hard to tell from catalogs thereafter exactly when the revision that added the assist handle occurred. As Lodge made...

Re: Grooved Handle Griswolds

I doubt you'll find mention or even illustration of the handle design in catalogs. About the only thing we can be reasonably certain of is that the grooved handle is later than the "late" handle. As...

Re: Cooking with a Hinged-double Skillet???

One would not necessarily "want to cook in a double skillet over a skillet with a lid". One may, however, decide to purchase a double skillet, instead of a skillet and a lid, for the added...

Consider using stainless steel Chore Boy on as-cast surface.

Re: Cooking with a Hinged-double Skillet???

Double skillets, hinged or not, simply allow for a lid to double as a second skillet. "Hinged" is a bit of a misnomer. It's more just a tab and slot to allow the skillet/lid (while being used as a...

Re: What is This?

The lye solution only works on build-up that has some grease remaining in it. If it has been reduced to just carbon, lye is ineffective. That's likely what you're experiencing here. Electrolysis may...

Re: Today’s Picks

WI japanning would be limited to the base.
The cover is a RM "high type" (high dome, IOW).
1102 for the 80 double skillet bottom.

Re: Unmarked and Old Lodge

You'll need to be a little more patient, the forum shouldn't be thought of as real time answers on demand, and bumping threads is frowned upon. With time, you'll begin to be able to spot handle...

Re: Griswold #10 Small Logo

Personally, almost anything but flaxseed oil. Some have good experience with it; most do not, including me.

Re: Tiny Hammered Skillet

I wouldn't expect these to have survived past the point of switching to automated molding, so probably the earlier half of that time frame.

Re: Wards Cast Aluminum

Spout tip looks awfully thin to be cast. The riveted handle attachments are also unusual. Are you sure it's not spun aluminum?

Re: Wards Cast Aluminum

Might help to see if the pot looks like a Wagner.
