Re: DO/Oval Roaster Tops

It might be tempting to theorize that, if the lid were affixed to a rotating mechanism to grind the lid/pot joint smooth, they might be a way to keep it from slipping without involving the handle....

Re: Lodge Pineapple Pan

It's shown in the 2000 catalog, but by 2005 this category of pans had been whittled down to just the cactus and perch.

Re: Book or Source

Both those guides each contain smaller sections devoted to a handful of other manufacturers. The "Book of Wagner & Griswold" (red cover) has a section on Lodge.

Re: Spiral Design on Griddle

Wouldn't necessarily make a piece more or less collectible, but may increase it's value over another of the same that had been more well-used.

Re: Just Wondering about Wapak

Because Wagner didn't make a HR #3 skillet for Wapak to use to make a pattern?

Re: Unknown Family Skillet

It's the skillet/cover from a combo cooker. A few different makers produced them. If you find yourself wanting to acquire the other two parts, you'll want to become familiar with them so you...

Re: Help Dating Old LODGE

Not really. Lodge catalogs up to as late as the late 1990s only used artist's illustrations of pieces, and even after they began to use photo images, none showed the bottoms of pans.

Re: Thoughts on Differences

Adding iron to an already cast piece to convincingly make it look like it is bottom gated would be improbable.

Recasts, those pieces made using an actual pan as a pattern to create a mold, often...

Re: Thoughts on Differences

Not sure how the differences in characteristics would lead one to suspect that one is fake and the other not. The legs are also shaped differently and set at different distances from the...

Re: Favorite Pequa Ware 8E Skillet

If not cracked or warped-- having already been restored should help determine-- and if the seasoning is done properly, so you don't have to do it over (even though you may want to regardless), it's...

Re: Another Wapak Question

Those seem more like leveling nubs, say for an iffy pattern (or maybe the DO they made the pattern from was already bowed?). Or perhaps to keep it from spinning on or wearing down the Indian? Not...

Re: Help Dating Old LODGE

Although the RB doesn't show a marked Lodge skillet with that exact configuration of characteristics, it does include a marked single-notch. Lodge was a bit inconsistent with the placements of the TM...

Re: Another Wapak Question

If you mean like footed rimmed kettles, yes, it appears they used Griswold pieces as patterns. If you mean like camp ovens, it doesn't appear so, none shown in the BB, anyway.

Re: Help Identify

I'm not sure there's a definitive time line anywhere on Le Creuset design changes. The most recent models have the Signature Series larger handles. Those without LE CREUSET embossed in one of the...

Re: BSR?

Lodge handles are all over the place (see RB). Size numbers are lower on pans that apparently had the arc LODGE TM above them filled in, especially smaller 3, 4, 5s.

Re: BSR?

More like 1940s Lodge. BSR never used raised (or any) molder's marks or had a single notch heat ring. Sometimes IDing unmarked pans is more about the other things that don't make it by a particular...

Re: Wagner Arc/arc (I Think) with an Extra Big 'A'

One would be tempted to assume the A might be a maker's mark from the Erie skillet the pan was copied from, if it indeed was. Erie skillets with A marks aren't really known to have it in that...

Re: Just Wondering......

I'm guessing you mean other than Indian Head #3s. I don't recall seeing other than the tapered logo smooth bottoms, apparently used a pre-1924 Wagner for a pattern.

Re: Wagner Vienna Roll Pans

Same size, as in the copy has the extra edges making it the same width as the original? Wouldn't explain the length being the same, though. The cup openings on the copy look narrower on the ends....

Re: Wagner Chicken Fryer Pan Surface!!

"1891 Original" was meant to commemorate Wagner's 100th anniversary. It appears they were sold as early as 1989, however.

Re: Wagner Chicken Fryer Pan Surface!!

At some point, Wagner (as did Lodge) discontinued polish grinding pieces. I suppose technically a chicken fryer wouldn't need a smooth cooking surface if all one was doing is frying chicken.

Re: Dealing with the Pits

It's still smoother than any modern unpolished pan, and there aren't any contiguously eroded areas as far as I can see. Season it and start using, I'd say. It'll even out.

Re: New Member Form Stamford CT

Hopefully, that's not soaking for an entire three days straight. The process is normally soaking for 30 minutes at a time followed by scrubbing and rinsing, then repeating as necessary. Leaving it in...
