Default #1 WagnerWare Oval Roaster

Picked this up recently. Think the lid and bottom cleaned up pretty nicely.

Puzzled by the trivet. Page 58 in the RB says they came with Iron and Aluminum finishes. Should Aluminum rust like this? Any suggestions for cleaning it?

Finally, the one sold listing on eBay is crazy. over $600 with 41 bids. Can this really be that valuable?

Great find. Yes, they are high value items. Easiest way to tell if something is aluminum is a magnet (that won't stick). I'd say yours is (worn) nickel plated iron.

The magnet did stick, so it is not aluminum.

According to, http://www.castironcollector.com/plated.php

Nickel pieces appear to be platted versions of their cast iron counterparts. Therefore, should I subject the trivet to electrolysis to remove the rust and hopefully the nickel plating? What is the downside of doing so?

It probably won't affect the remaining nickel as you might anticipate. I'd just use vinegar and steel wool on the rust, then apply a minimal seasoning to inhibit rust reforming.

Thanks, Doug.

BTW, this turned out to be a very good day. For $35 I got the #1 Oval Roaster with trivet, a #9 Large block round griddle, a #10, 948 Erie Popover pan, a #3 small block grooved handle skillet, a #4 small block late handle skillet, a#5 Griswold Puritan skillet, a #6 large block smooth bottom skillet, and a #8 3 notch Lodge skillet. This was at an estate sale. I was securing all this when a guy took whatever the #7 skillet was. Oh well.....am certain I got the best of the deal.
