Default Griswold #10 Small Logo

Picked this up for $20 on local market place. No pitting on a smooth surface, no cracks, no wobble. Bottom is pretty crusty like it was used on a campfire. Got it in the oven on self clean right now hoping that will clean the crust from the bottom. Going to reseason with flax seed oil unless someone else has a better suggestion.

Personally, almost anything but flaxseed oil. Some have good experience with it; most do not, including me.

Crisco is almost a universal standard for reliable oven seasoning. I used home rendered lard, then switched to Crisco, mostly because I'd rather use my pork bellies to make bacon

Great find, I would be very happy to find a #10 Griswold for $20 even if a small logo as a place keeper/user till I found a earlier one, my preference. I have a large logo chicken fryer that I love and a shallower 10 would be used even more.

I gave my brother a unmarked Wagner 10 and he absolutely loves it. Great size skillet when you need a bit more room

As far as seasoning, stick with old school that has worked for as long as those types cooking vessels have been around

Each to his own so to speak. I have been using Grapeseed Oil for over 5 years and no complaints at all. It has a "high" smoke point and is made from 100% seeds from grapes "NO ADDITIVES". Because of the high smoke point it's ideal for stir-fry, deep frying and sautéing. Expensive as compared to other oils but worth it in the end.

Cleaned up the skillet today, soap, water and a little bar keepers friend. 2 rounds of seasoning with Crisco, 500 degrees for 1 hour. I'm pleased with the way it came out. Cooking surface is unbelievably smooth.

Looks like you have a winner. Enjoy the wow-zoo out of it. I can smell some great meals coming out of that old #10

I use bacon grease to season, but I would probably go to Crisco on a newly stripped piece.
