Re: Removing Stubborn Carbonization?

Thanks a bunch, Doug. The EPU eventually got completely de-carbonized using the tips in the link. A Wapak Z ended up being a bit more complex due to the typical rough/bumpy casting, although I was...

Re: Smaller Skillets?

That is a really good point about using the smaller skillets as serving dishes or for desserts. I've seen Jeff Rogers do this in a couple of his videos for serving pot roast and roasted spiral...

Re: Search Ideas

My experience with Goodwill, at least in my area, is that pretty much everything there is total garbage. I'll mostly see modern-day dirty used Lodge skillets for close to the asking price for new on...

Re: What's Your Favorite Pan for Cornbread?

I hope it is okay to reply to/bump older threads. Doug, if it is not, please let me know.

For baking, I tend to usually reach for pieces that are in-process with the seasoning or perhaps a skillet...

Re: Collecting Vs Using

Doug,

Thank you so much. This is extremely helpful. I was in the mindset of Lodge vs Le Creuset vs Milo. Never even realized Cuisinart has an enameled dutch oven, will look into it.

Re: Collecting Vs Using

How many of you folks are into the smaller skillets? If you are, do you actually use them for cooking or mainly for display? From my perspective at least, most vintage is so light that the smallest...

Re: IRONSPOON Seasoning Method

Mike,

Re: Collecting Vs Using

Lately, I like to try and use every piece in my CI and CS collection at least once every 3 months or so. However, this isn't strictly necessary as everything is put away "dry" and not oiled after...
