1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned?

Lodge #8 or #10 skillet. Ex-wife has it now.

2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both?

I have cooked with almost all of my pieces, basically. I'm more a user than collector, but I'm becoming both. You can't really use 50+ pieces regularly.

3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting?

Iron Mountain #5 is what made me consider collecting all of the Iron Mountain series.

4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired?

Unmarked Vollrath #12 or the Blankenship Combo cooker lid/skillet. Don't remember which I bought first.

5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be?

Iron Mountain cast aluminum Chicken Pan or Fanner #8 Waffle Iron and base. It took too long and was too hard to finish finding see. I'm also from Cleveland, sentimental.

6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list".

A. Iron Mountain complete collection of all items made.

B. Griswold #11 & #13 skillets

C. Vintage German cake pan (Bundt) with swirled or unique design.

40 years ago I think it was a #10 Wagner
More of a user but really both
Griswold #8, and 2 Griswold waffle irons
Not sure yet but I think my #14 Griswold skillet
The 14 skillet "
If Im remembering measurement correctly a 29 Griswold griddle, older the better CI, the spider would be cool

1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned? My mom's old #10, possibly Wagner from the 50's.

2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both? both

3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting? I have picked up pieces here and there just because I liked them, so truly collecting has only recently begun.

4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired? small logo Griswold #6 chicken fryer

5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be? my mom's skillet mentioned above

6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list". I'll have to think about that one and post back later.

1. Unmarked #3 size skillet possibly made by Blackl@@ck. I don't remember how I acquired it, where it is now, or when I ever used it, but I am certain that it may be a Blackl@@ck (lol).
2. Both. I am a newbie collector, and I am a lousy cook who enjoys using my vintage CI.
3. Victor #7 Skillet P/N 721B with an upside down raised #7 on the handle. I like its low walls and light weight. I am partial to "misfits," my term for CI with casting errors, such as the Monday Morning Martin #3 Hamburger Logo Skillet and the Monday Morning Lodge Upside Down #3 Skillet, and the Wagner National misspelled "Natonal" P/N 1359C Skillet.
4. Wapak Chickenfoot #8 Skillet
5. Martin #9 Hamburger Logo Skillet. It's a nice size to make spaghetti sauce and chili.
6. Wagner National misspelled "Natonal" P/N 1359C Skillet, Victor #6 Skillet, Martin Bacon Fryer Skillet

I'll take a crack at this:

1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned?
Modern Lodge #8sk that's only 7 years old

2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both?
I think both, as I'm hooked on acquiring pre-30's stuff, but will be using it actively.

3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting?
A pair of pre-60's Wagner #3's

4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired?
My Piqua Favorite Smiley #7

5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be?
My Piqua Favorite Smiley #5

6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list"
The following Piqua Favorite Smiley pieces - a DO, a round flat griddle and a chicken fryer and lid

Can you tell I'm a fan of Smileys?
