Re: What is This?

Thanks MD. I am an experience "careful" scraper and have had excellent success in the past, but not so much with this one.

I am now trying the Dawn soap on the burner. Crossing my fingers.

Re: What is This?

Thanks Doug. When I eventually give up and start seasoning, with this blend in? Will seasoning even stick to this patch?

What is This?

I’ve had this sitting in a lye tank for 10 days or so. Every 2-3 days I pull it out and scrub it by hand with a wire brush. Not much improvement each time.

Just keep letting it soak in lye?

Ever Heard of Komin Oval Fry Pan?

Komin Oval Fry Pan - Made in Japan. Felt like cast iron, handle looked like steel.

Has anyone ever heard of it? My internet searches so far have come up empty.

An unknown (for know) #8 and a Griswold slant Erie #8 pot.

Re: Need Help IDing This ECI

Thanks SeanD. I was thinking Descoware as well. No "Descoware Made in Belgium" puts this pan pre-1960? Combined with an original color of Citron (yellow), does it put it in the mid 50's? Probably...

Need Help IDing This ECI

Just picked up this little ECI.
The “15” suggests centimeters, which suggests European, which suggests...France?

All thoughts welcomed.

Re: Help Identifying This DO

Here it is after seasoning. It turned a little “copper” in color, but I think it turned out pretty good. Doesn’t appear to be scaly.

Re: Help Identifying This DO

Thanks Doug. I didn’t see any markings on the bottom either.
I’ve never dealt with a heat damaged pan. What are the consequences? Will it season up as normal? Is it still usable? Is it more...

Thanks.

GTurner - how do you restore the luster if the finish dulls during cleaning?

Re: Dru V. Descoware

Thanks Doug. It just seemed a little suspicious that the handles are the same, but I suppose that is like cast iron skillets having a handle with a hole in it, many look the exact same.

Dru V. Descoware

What is the relationship between Dru & Descoware, if any?
The handles on the Dru I just picked up looks exactly like the handles on the Descoware.

Re: Descoware Thrift Store Find

First I scrubbed it thoroughly with Bar keepers friend. This softened it just enough to carefully scrape it with a razor blade - not the point but the middle of the blade. After a couple of hours of...

Re: Descoware Thrift Store Find

Thanks GTurner, I’m pretty happy with it so far. Took a lot of elbow grease to clean it up.

I was able to remove the handle without problems. It surprised me the way it attaches. I can’t decide...

Descoware Thrift Store Find

Picked this up today at a thrift store.
Does anybody know Descoware well enough to know if this is the correct handle?

Thanks.

Vinegar Bath

I think it's been well established here that a Lye tank can almost go forever, or at least a long time before it's strength is diminished. What about a Vinegar bath? How long can that go before it...

Re: Castiron Collection

I’ve had good luck selling on Craigslist and FB marketplace. They are essentially drawn out garage sales, but on your timetable.

Wagner chicken fryer 1402 and Puritan 5F.

Re: I Found This #7 Skillet at Goodwill

I, too, found this at a Goodwill. Doug, Roughly the same age? Would these be called a “griddle” rather than a skillet?

Re: Enameled CI

Yes they did. Thank you very much. I definitely have a Descoware lid/small pan. It doesn’t quite fit my 1 1/2 qt pan and it looks odd, but could work in a pinch.

What’s Wrong with This DO?

I thought I struck gold, until I looked further. Is it still worth putting in the time to get it looking good?
