Steve, those are beautiful.

I think my favorite, at least the one I use most, is a nickel plated WWSO #6 with heat ring that was among the pans given to SWMBO by her mother when she got her first apartment. They were her grandmothers.

I also really like using an unknown #8 gate marked griddle.

Gorgeous piece you have there, Steve!!! Personally, My go to skillet is my Griswold #8. I use many of my others depending on what and how much I am cooking

I have a #7 small block Griswold that is gaining ground on my #8 Iron Mountain as my go-to user. The seasoning is really starting to build up quite nicely on that one.

Until just a couple days ago, I only had my Griswold #8 and a corn stick pan. I have used the skillet for nearly everything from frying up an egg to deep frying chicken. I think no matter what I get, this will always be my go-to favourite, as it was my great-grandfather's and passed down through the family.

This is my daily user. It's pretty nice. The cooking surface is slick and works great. I don't know who makes it but I'm glad they did. It's half the weight of my Lodge skillets.

Cool thread. I'm surprised so many are using #7 and #8's as their primary, go-to. I really need to kick my "bigger is better" mentality and start using the middle sizes (7,8,9,) more often.

My daily skillet is a National/Wagner Sidney 1359E No.9 that was the second pan my Mother gave me. It's just the right size.

I've got many older, many nicer, but only one other that came from Mom, and it's an old No.6 3-notch Lodge. I find it too small to work in.

The No.9 never leaves the stove top.

My most frequently used is my Oneta #7 - feels real good in my hand, nice and smooth inside.
