I have a Wapak Indian Head skillet that the handle stuck up so much it was uncomfortable to use. I took a hammer and beat on it until the handle was in a much more usable position. I was surprised...

Re: Cooking with the Ultimate Turkey Roaster.

It is 20" across and 9" deep. There are no markings on it at all. I purchased two of them (and four 16" Lodge Camp Ovens) through an estate sale in Idaho.
