Re: 3-hole Handle #3 with P/n 668

PN is in the books but no photo ID. Seems what you know is there is to know. Great piece and one I'd love to have!

Re: Vollrath 10 (85) Dutch Oven

Thanks!

I took some time to look around and find some pictures of enameled Vollrath and found that many have "smeared" bottoms. I think their quality control was subpar. This is most certainly...

Vollrath 10 (85) Dutch Oven

I came across this in my travels and had to have it. I normally shy away from enameled pieces but this one was in really nice shape. The bottom has factory enameling smudged, for lack of a better...

Re: Chicago HDWE FDRY Co. , #5

Thanks! Yeah, I let it go for less than I wanted, but hopefully it will find a good home.

Re: Chicago HDWE FDRY Co. , #5

I just restored a beautiful dutch oven with this logo. I was close to keeping it, but it found another home.

Re: Turks Head Pans, Griswold, Wagner and Lodge.

Bakers Joy performs the best for me, as well. My muffin and gem pans never stick provided they are preheated and I use BJ.

Re: Wapak with Gate Mark?

Wapak Chicken foot pans are silently commanding a lot of attention and money. Not as much as the medallions, but they are cool pieces.

This recast, although not beautiful, is really neat in its...

Get in line.

I married the right person, but even I tax her patience every now and then :)

I read your original post too quickly and missed the part about age. Sorry about that! Glad you found it.

Re: Early Griswold Dutch Oven Lid

Agreed. I think the earliest Erie lids were flat with one number at 6 o'clock. The earliest bottoms would be the size number at 6, and "Erie" at 12. Sound accurate?

Re: My Latest Haul

Yeah, I was pretty stoked to see all the Erie. I really like to restore and then move the stuff along, but my worry is that I might keep all these Erie! My plan was to only collect series 1 and 2,...

Re: Looking for Information on an Ikea Dutch Oven

I'm not sure there will be more information than what is on the bottom. It will work just fine, I'm sure!

My Latest Haul

After purchasing that 20 "prison" skillet and other items, I went back to pick the rest of the guy's cast iron collection. I wound up buying it all.

Re: Early Griswold Dutch Oven Lid

From my understanding, anything with the P/N is "newer" than the lids without. I've also noticed that the lids that are older are flat. Yours has a "dome" to it. I have narrowed down that the lids...

Re: I Need Help Identifying Skillet

To me, it looks like an unmarked Favorite. The thicker, outside heat ring plus the reinforcement on the handle nudge me in that direction.

Re: 20" Skillet

I don't think they were made in prisons at all, from what I have read. I believe that they were a southern casting.

Yeah, it is HUGE. I have almost stripped it with EasyOff, but not totally, yet.
