Default Marietta Pieces - Lids

Have seen two Marietta Do's/bean pots. The lids for both are not CI. Anyone know what they are made of and how to clean them?

I had the large oval pot and it had a tin top. Cleaning - eTank. but my top was in very nice shape so it was not in my eTank very long mostly to get off years of dirt.

Lets try this; https://get.google.com/albumarchive/...upKsXaST3lK9j3

If I remember correctly I cleaned mine with fume free oven cleaner which doesn't contain lye.

I too thought it was tin, but it has rust. Thought tin did not rust. Guess I have no choice but to put it into the etank.

Imgur has changed the process, hope I got it correct.

Jeffrey,
Jeff,

After you cleaned the tin top, did you try to season it?

Whatever my is made of, it is rusted on the top. After I clean it in the etank guess I'll just apply a very think layer of oil.

I do not remember what I put on the lid, but am thinking mineral oil (food grade).
If it will be used I would season it.

I don't recall but probably just wiped with mineral oil also or seasoned at lower temp with Crisco.
