Re: Breaking in the new fish fryer

First up: hush puppies. (Lesson learned with the fryer. I got the oil too hot and the hushpuppies were burned on the outside by the time they were done of the inside. They still tasted good!)

Re: Special a Find

Are both looped handles intact? I had a # 728 "Hotel skillet". It was warped and had a small crack by one of the looped handles. I gave $10 for it in the early 1980's at Lacon "flea" market in North...

Re: HTF Griswold #12 New England Griddle

New to me, I blew the dust off the red book and there are two listings for 708 skillets. One called "early skillet" . Nothing called NE Griddle.

Re: Got Lucky This Morning

Like Doug said. The lid is worth at least 5 - 10 x times the pan. Look close where the handle attaches to the pan after clean up. Those large pans needed a more beefy handle than a #5 or up. Look...

Re: Removing “Exfoliated”, Hard Rust Buildup

How slick is the inside? Don't want pits meeting in the middle.

Re: What is This Gigantic Thing?

I am sure many hams were boiled in those elongated pots. Those were used to make small batches. Pork renderings, water bath canning, small cotton diaper cleaning???, small batch lye soap making....

Re: Lodge Cast Iron Fluted Cake Pans

Nice post. We were in the Smoky Mountains last year and I purchased one of the new bundt cake pans. The wife loves it. I passed on the "fish fryer" whatever long pan this year.

Re: BSR #8 with Lid

I would have given twice that for the lid, maybe more. Great deal. Those darn lids are hard to find in my area.

Re: Large Kettle Clean Up

The wire wheel method is the best way to strip a large old kettle.Most are dimpled in the cooking area. The surface is lightly etched allowing the lard to coat the surface.

Re: Large Kettle Clean Up

Not 100% lime. That is a wash pot that had a build up of Borax or lime soap to clean clothing under a wood fire. I have cleaned several southern kettles that look like yours. Was the "crust"thicker...

Re: I Found This #7 Skillet at Goodwill

Nothing good in my area. Cast iron, jewelry, and sterling silver is "cherry picked" before placed out for sale. Rusty new Lodge pans and rusty corn stick pans. Both showing evidence of owner neglect.

Re: Anybody Seen One of These Before?

Stamped steel pan. Made in a press. Flea markets call them "cowboy fry pans"in an attempt to jack up the prices. Most used examples have a bad wobble.

Re: Help With Large Cast Iron Cauldron

Those with the outer lip/rim/edge are sometimes called syrup kettles. Rendering down maple syrup. I have no proof or documentation and yours may have never saw a drop of maple syrup.

Re: GRISWOLD #4 Skillets I've Found

Nice. Never seen the wood handle version. I let a few slide out in the early 1990's in a trade for some spider skillets. I had some with heat rings. :cry:
I have learned a lot.:shootself:

Re: Any Ideas?

Do you have the rimmed lid? The "D" shaped legs place this example in the older phase of gate marked spiders. 1880's to 1920's.

Re: Today's Goodwill Finds

Our local Goodwill stores cherry pick the cast iron donations. All we see is chinese cookie pans and chinese fajita pans from the Christmas gift stuff.

I wonder if they have records across the pond for early cast iron ware? Tax or export records.

Re: DO ID

They are called spider skillets in the southeast states. So many foundries made them there is no way to label who made what unless the lid is marked with a name of series of initials. This example is...
