Default Fun Restoration from a Couple Months Ago. (Warning: Rust!)

I'll often pick up cheap pieces against my better judgement, just to test my skills. I've been surprised some times, and disappointed other times.

This was a $3 pickup, hey, only $3, it's worth a shot. A couple weeks after getting it cleaned up, I took it to a get together with a bunch of friends, and I filled it with Jalapeno/cheese cornbread.

What it looked like when I bought it.


After cleaning.

Wow, what a great job.

This is a perfect example of what I love about this hobby. When you find that rusty, cruddy piece that was designated for scrap, and turn it into a gem.

Good job!! I love to find old pans that most people would pass on, then fix then up and use them. I am no collector by far, I am a user!

Sometimes, you do get luckier than you imagined.
