Re: Griswold Nickel?

Thanks for the tips Doug. Still in lye bath hope to get to it this week. So do you believe that plated Griswolds were likely all plated on the inside and if it appears to be all bare iron, the...

Re: Griswold Griddles

Re: Griswold Griddles

Valid points Rick. The heating makes sense it's just that on smaller burners my other griddle w/ no reinforcement bottoms out on front/sides of my stove. For some reason I prefer using the griddle...
