Default Recent Finds

Found a few nice pieces for my area recently. Probably isnít much for most of you but around here (northerlies utah) the pickings are slim and marked iron is almost always marked with outrageous prices.

Anyway I was in an antique store and seen this attractive dome shaped DO marked ďvintage lodgeĒ for $29.. I was all over that! This is my first Griswold Iron Mountain piece, lid is tight without wobble. Going to do DO potatoes in it later today for itís first use (by me anyway).





Also found these pieces, Iíve used the griswold abelskiver already and it wasnít the disaster I thought it would be.




Iím still on the hunt for a Vollrath chicken fryer to go with lid I found, I guess that my holy grail right now.

Anyway thanks for looking and good luck on your searches!

Good eye haha! Yes I put Nutella in half and a peanut butter and raspberry jam mixture in the other half.

Quite good and surprised for my first try at them but Iíll use different filling next time .

The DO is very nice looking. I'm most envious about the aebleskiver. Waiting to come across my first. When I finally get one, hope it is as nice as the one you found.

Yes I really like that DO. I didnít take before pictures, those pics are after I stripped and re seasoned , but they were both in great condition to start with.

First time use, I like it!

Iíve been impressed with it. Only problem Iíve had is it warped a little on my glass top, probably because I got it too hot when doing the initial seasoning ?

Iím told lodge would replace it but a little tapping with a mallet using a round log as a dolly it straightened out good as new, and hasnít warped again since. Eggs slide around on it and it rivals cast for searing .

I like it so much Iím planning on buying one of those fancy Aus-ion pans as well.
