Default Griswold 11.25 inch "Skillet Griddle"

Hello everyone,

A recent find is a Griswold 11.25 inch "Skillet Griddle", small block logo for - $75, I would not have paid any more than that, but, I don't see many griddles around in my local area...tried to haggle a little, but seller didn't budge...anyway, it is now soaking in a lye bath. Anxious to try it out on pancakes and pizza.

I would have washed it with Dawn, threw in the butter and poured the batter.

EC,
Nice skillet griddle, I have a Wagner almost exactly like it. I just had gotten it done and started to use it. So far I'm liking it very much but still getting it broke in. I had been wanting one myself and had looking for the Griswold style. Yours is like mine with no pour spouts. And from what I've seen for sale I think you're in the ballpark on price Give or take. I still would like the upgrade mine to a Griswold 109 or 110 with pour spouts for my personal preference.

I have not done pancakes in it yet but French toast turned out nice.
Also done eggs a couple of times but the pan
Still needs a tad more use but made handling them simple and easy to turn.

Yea, ya could. But, the angle of light did show too well, but, there was a good layer of old burnt grease on interior. For me, for sanitary reasons alone, I always strip my old iron finds to bare metal and re-season before I use them. Who knows what, where and how long an old piece of iron has been sitting around and old seasoning going rancid.

Yea, I have been wanting a larger, round vintage griddle of a sort. I have a square 11.25 inch BSR breakfast griddle from the 1970s (?) I picked up at an estate sale last year. A real champ at pancakes and french toast.

I will put up more pics after clean up hopefully over the weekend. The layer(s) of old burnt grease was not too thick, so maybe by Sunday or next week sometime.

I have the very same pan that I picked up just recently as well . I have it cleaned now , but haven't used it yet .

I knew this when I bought it and I got it at a great price (if I remember right $15) , but some jack a$$ tried cleaning it with a grinder . Luckily they only touched the outside . Anyway , the writing is still perfectly clear on the bottom and the cooking surface is nice . When it's sitting right side up for cooking you can't even tell , so it'll be a great user , just really devalued .

I'll probably put 2 or 3 more rounds of seasoning on it and it will be so black that the light parts where the grinder touched it won't show much unless you really look at it .

Yea, some folks out there who are not knowledgeable/or just don't know better about what they are doing will do things to old vintage CI that are deplorable. Could you post a few pics?

OMG. Fifty lashes! Yea, shame to say the least. Well, at least ya can still whip up pancakes with it and french toast! I check mine earlier this evening and I am beginning to see what appears to be circular machine marks on cooking surface.
