Re: Identification and Gang Mold Numbers?

I wouldn't read anything into the shape of the numerals. There are only so many ways to make a 3.

Re: Identification and Gang Mold Numbers?

When the pans are small, gang mold is the most likely explanation for such marks. Those are unmarked Vollrath.

The other looks like a copy, made with some degree of competence, probably by some...

Re: Dawn Power Wash

Not the same as Dawn Power Dissolver, which will work on polymerized grease. It contained sodium hydroxide. Dawn Professional Power Dissolver is a similar product, but it contains no NaOH.

Re: Braised Short Ribs

Not likely. The acidity of wine, vinegar, tomatoes, etc. is the concern.

Re: Unmarked Identification Please

The left is an unmarked Wagner ca. mid-1960s or after. The Taiwan pan about the same time frame, maker unknown.

Re: Wagner Long Griddle with Unusual Handles

In, well, catalogs. Or catalog reprints. Or old advertising.

Re: Is This a Crack?

Cracks are normally seen in the sidewalls of skillets, from the top edge down. A crack in the bottom that didn't also continue up the sidewall would be unlikely.

Re: Wagner Long Griddle with Unusual Handles

The 1168 and 1169 are known as flat bottom long griddles, the c/n 1169 being a fraction of an inch wider and 1-1/2" longer than the 1168. Catalog illustrations from the 1920s accurately reflect the...

Re: Help Identifying Moms Hinged Fry Pan

Probably not aluminum. Aluminum skillets had wooden handles because of the metal's high heat conductivity. More likely nickel plated iron. A magnet will confirm.

Re: Need Help with Identification.

No more plausible than a lone G standing for Griswold. More likely a gang mold identifier, especially when seen on a smaller piece. But, yes, most likely Asian import.

Re: What is This ??

Search term "cast iron oven" (my lucky guess).

https://www.seriouseats.com/2015/12/fourneau-bread-oven-serious-tool-for-home-bakers.html

Looks like they make a little peel for it, too.

Re: Identify 7Y Skillet

Best to assume that photos will be expected whenever seeking ID help. Saves a lot of time.

Re: CI I Have Had for Years

I was thinking it may be a Griswold unmarked Victor. There would need to be a 754 on the bottom, though. Victors, being economy brand skillets, are smaller and shallower than regular skillets of the...

Re: CI I Have Had for Years

Handle isn't at all right for BSR. Is there a possibility of other markings under build-up at 12 o'clock?

Re: Griswold 8 Tite Top DO. A Few Questions.

The lid is not weakly marked, it's enameled. Griswold called it a "Clean Easy" feature. I'll have to get back to you on the match vs. marriage.

Re: Can You Help Me Identify This Beauty?

They are both BSR. The one you found photos of online is definitely from the period I noted above. The one in the first post appears to have pour spouts smaller than those of the older 1930s-40s Red...

Re: Can You Help Me Identify This Beauty?

BSR. From early 1950s, when they started using their first type of automated molding, to the mid-1960s.

Re: Dutch Oven ID Help

Both BSR. Lid Red Mountain. Pot seems more recent. Single-tapered loop handles mean there was only one hinged retractable prong on the pattern, as opposed to the earlier two prong style.

Re: Really Old Sidney O Scotch Bowl

The last BB lumps the 3, 4,and 5 together at $40-60. My goal 10 years ago was to try to figure about half whatever the average of values it quoted was and offer that. Might not be a feasible strategy...

Re: Griswold/Puritan Waffle Iron, Made This Way?

The frequency of this type of pairing being seen, coupled with an example in the BB, tends to indicate this version and at least one other Puritan version (p/ns 885/886) were sold this way. P/ns...
