Default Broken CI, what to do?

Some may recall I recently posted elsewhere about receiving a BSR 6-wedge corn bread skillet that was broken in shipping. I'm happy to say I've replaced it with another, acquired at my same target price. But now I'm left with the question, what to do with the broken one?

I could keep it as my "one-of-a-kind 5-wedge CBS", but I'm not sure it's still worth the effort to clean it up and the storage space to keep it around. Or I could just chuck it.

I'm not really looking for advice per se, but I am interested in hearing what y'all have done with your broken CI. I recall seeing some continue to use a broken-handled skillet some way or another.

Cheers!

Ashes to ashes. I'd let it go.

Eric it sounds like it's more than just the handle that's missing. If just the handle cut smooth and file. And use it to serve beef or chicken fajitas in two wedges and peppers in one, onions in one or two and kept warm in the oven till all is ready. Self serve off table with tongs.

I seen a older Wagner with a small hole drilled in the center made into a clock. It was priced to high to do something with. But my thought if found cheap was to drill more small holes and use on the grill to do smaller cut up vegetables that would normally fall threw that had that grill or smoker taste.

I'm with HD. Chuck it. I don't do broken cast iron.

Comment: I like Steven's idea, but if working with tools isn't your thing, or the break precludes such a fix, you can recycle. Sad story anyway you look at it...

It's part of the outer rim that's broken, where one of the wedges is. Yes, I'm unlikely to keep it.

But what I was hoping for from this thread was for people to share what they've done with their broken CI, unrelated to mine.

Am I the only one that's wanted to melt down broken CI and cast something new with it?

Would it work for a sacrificial anode in an etank? Seems having that large surface area would help with the speed of the process.

Is there a scrap yard reasonably close by? That way you might get a few pennies, and it'd be a better use of the space than putting it in a landfill, which will take no telling how long till it rusts away.
