Re: Rust!

Almost every piece I have ever restored has had significant flash rust. I go through the lye/etank/vinegar/soap/cold water motions, towel dry, and then fully dry in a 200 degree oven. After a few...

Re: Wok Vs CI for Asian Stir Fry?

I use an anodized aluminum wok. Nothing has ever stuck to it, and it’s very light.

But I’d still like to know the technique that works for you using cast iron.

Re: Cast Iron Sources Other Than EBay?

I’ve had some luck finding good deals on eBay. Apply search filters “used” and “unbranded”. It takes a lot of searching and scrolling, and usually there won’t be anything interesting. But that’s how...

Re: Cast Iron Spatula?

Does anyone know how to properly make these? I have a few skillets that revealed cracks after the lye bath, and it seems like an interesting project. But I can’t find a tutorial anywhere. Any special...

Re: Gate-Marked Fancy Handle #8

Your Krum cake pan is in the Griswold section on p159 in the red book.

Andresen may have contracted with different foundries for some items, but there are about a dozen other Griswold...

Re: Cast Iron Aebleskiver Pan

The aebleskiver pan is Lodge. Lodge handles are inconsistent, so not great for identification. Fortunately they emblazoned their products with all kinds of other markings that usually make them easy...

Re: Electrolysis Tank Upkeep

Jody, can you please post a link for the graphite plates you use? Everything I see online is either very small or very expensive. Thanks!

Blueberry Gems

The birds are actually letting me have some of the blueberries from my bushes this year, so I’ve been finding new ways to use them up. When doing a google search for ‘blueberry gems’, the first 15 or...

Re: What is This Gigantic Thing?

Thanks Doug.
I didn't buy it yet. I have no real use for it, but it's so visually striking I may go get it anyway. I just have to come up with a place to put it that my wife will approve of!

Why...

What is This Gigantic Thing?

Is this a camp oven? I can't imagine cooking something in this!
It's 25" long, 12" wide, and 10" high

Re: Is This a Matching Set?

It sold before I had a chance to return. But I remember it being smooth and flat. Would a Wagner have a defining characteristic under the tab?

Looks like a Wagner lid, but I don't know about the DO.

Alchemy!

That second pic looks like a really gnarly sour beer fermentation.

Re: E-tank Time

What if it is left in the tank without the power on? Does the solution inhibit rust formation?

Mom's Basement Find

I can't believe I have one of these stories now. My mother never even cooked with cast iron.

Shortly after I started collecting, she said she would bring me a Griswold skillet from her basement...

Re: "Brilliant" Waffle Iron

So far I've determined that there was a Brilliant Iron & Steel Co. in Brilliant, Ohio that went out of business sometime between 1893 - 1895. I found a reference to a focus on bar iron (whatever that...

Re: Fire Damage?

No, just red on the bottom. Does it normally go all the way through?

It's definitely not rosy, more dull brick red.

"Brilliant" Waffle Iron

The pattern numbers make me think this was made by Griswold for another company, but I can find no factual information about it. Does anyone know the history here?

Fire Damage?

I've yet to see fire damage in person. This has a lot of dull red that doesn't look like rust, and a few shiny spots. I don't know what "scaly" would look like since again I've never seen it.

Re: Why Do You Like Vollrath?

I agree with CR about the balance and weight. I have a new (to me) unmarked 8 taking a bath that is going to replace my current standard user.

Also, they have a wicked giant spike on the handle....
