I got this in the mail today. I think I will have to use OC to clean so I don't mess up the thermometer. I finally found my hammered DO. Yay.

I don't see much for lye or Easy Off to do to that lid, not on the top anyway. I would probably just mask off the thermometer with painter's tape and scrub the rust with some straight sprayed on vinegar.

Thanks Doug, I will try that first. Maybe I will send the bottom to the lye for a while. I was just curious to see if there are any markings on the bottom. I believe it to be Wagner but I don't think it's marked. I think it is the DO Steve Stephens mentioned in this post.

Nice. Hilditch would do his best to remove the thermometer and refurbish it if possible returning it to the lid after seasoning. 50/50

Enjoy, Hilditch

More than one maker appears to have produced hammered finish ware without the usual TM markings.
The Wagner aluminum version is marked, though. Mine came with trivet and a free bonus:

The vinegar scrub did wonders for the DO. I put it on the gas stove to dry and the thermometer works. That was a nice surprise.

I picked up a Wagner aluminum scoop. It is the one on page 92 of the RB that says Orange Blossom Glycerine Soap.

I am trying to find your broiler grill in the books but I don't see it? I saw one like it but yours is different.

Hilditch, I think this is one time I will accept the dirty thermometer and just call that patina. When I first saw the photos I thought it just screwed out but after closer examination, it is pressed in and I don't think I can get it out without damage. As long as the inside of the DO is spotless I can live with the seasoned thermometer.

I knew it would have a big price tag next to it! That was your free extra trivet! Those are my favorite kind of free things.

Hi, Bonnie. I think you just answered one of my longstanding questions. My favorite soup, stew, etc. pan is a hammered DO which my late mother-in-law gave to me many years ago. (She couldn't handle the weight of it any longer.) It's not marked, but I was pretty sure she got it early in her married life (i.e. 1930s), and while it doesn't have the nice thermometer in it, the style is identical. That is a really neat piece! Happy cooking!
