Re: Braised Short Ribs

You can always keep an eye out for an older Le Cheque oops I mean Le Creuset lol. Most older enameled pieces have a few nicks in the enamel. Look for Le Creuset, Descoware, DRU Holland, Copco and...

If you ever decide to invest in an enameled DO, you will be able use acidic foods. Additional cost I know, but it does open up more possibilities.

Re: Lot of Griswold

Nice find! The lid may just be the best piece of the set. I can never find much Griswold in one place unless they want top dollar.

Re: An Interesting Question....

Why over pay if you don't have to. I try not to pay large amount of money on pieces. I don't necessarily only look for very inexpensive pieces either. If I find a piece that I want, I'll pay extra...

Re: Pieces from a Recent Estate Tag Sale

I would liked to have seen what was left. Nice haul. Gem pans will set you back a bit. Especially the really old ones, early 1900's and older.

Re: Pratt and Wentworth Skillet

Single pour spout, gate marked, identifiable, 1800's.... I would say that there is value there. He may never find another like it, without selling the house, car and wife lol

Re: Griswold Turks Head Pans #140 and #240

You could do a reverse e-tank, using the cauldron as the tank and placing your metal suspended in the solution. It will clean the inside at least.

It looks like there might be small holes in it,...

Re: Seasoning Intricate Designs

No designs, but waffle irons, corn bread pans and gem pans are a pain to clean and season. I use a silicone pastry brush to get into the crevices, and I've used chopsticks to get into some spots....

Re: What Has My Wife Done???

Can you find another wife lol

Seriously though, the seasoning has probably just flaked off due to the sudden change in temp. Be glad it didn't crack.

Did she use hot water or cool water?
