Re: 10 1/2" Skillet

Interesting. I have this skillet in an 8 inch version. The Teflon coating is still there, but quite worn.

Re: Erie #7 Bean Pot

Doug, I see this discussion a lot. While it is true that the Griswold family owned the factory and the ERIE pieces were made in the same factory as the Griswold marked ones, I still see it as being...

Re: Single Notch Lodge Hammered #7 Restore

Very cool idea of showing the progression through the cleaning process. I did it once with a #14 Griswold, but didn't show as much detail in the photos. Nice job.

Lodge Wildlife Series DOG Skillet

Just finished restoring this Lodge Setter Dog skillet. It's from their 1990s Wildlife Series. I'm usually not that interested in newer pieces, but I understand that this is a very hard piece to find....

Re: Hammered Griswold Vs Hammered Lodge

I've always wondered about the handles being nearly identical myself. Did one just copy the other, or is it possible it was some sort of joint effort between the 2 companies??

Re: Holy Cow! Was Anyone at or Watching the Prices at the Ohio 'airworks' Auction To

Yeah, I saw some posts about it. I know that the hard-to-find pieces have been bringing good money lately, but that was crazy. I think I heard that a #13 lid brought $5000 ?

Big Pile with a Hammered Single-notch Lodge

I bought a nice pile of skillets yesterday. There are a few nice pieces in there, including my first hammered, single-notch Lodge. It's a chrome #5, with a few worn areas on the cooking surface. Also...

Re: WAPAK #12, (2) WAGNER #11s. Recent Finds

Doug, I felt it was a possibility when I was buying this skillet. Closer inspection, tilting at every possible angle, it still doesn't appear to be. Something looks a little different in that area,...

Re: WAPAK #12, (2) WAGNER #11s. Recent Finds

Thanks Ed. They all are in great shape and sit incredibly flat for pans of this size. I will be cleaning and re-seasoning them this spring or summer.

Re: How Many Rounds of Seasoning

You really only need 1 layer to provide protection from rusting. You will add seasoning with use. I do 2 or sometimes 3 layers to darken them a little more. that is strictly for cosmetics to resell.

Re: Ok, Not Cast Iron.. .but How About Some Bottom Gated Griswold Aluminum?

That's a very interesting piece of history. Thanks for sharing this information. I live right across the river from New Kensington and will have to research this a little further.

Re: Griswold Questions

First off, welcome to the site Stephen. In my opinion, Slant logo skillets without heat ring are MUCH harder to find that with heat ring. You hardly ever see any come up for sale compared to their...

Re: Wagner Hotel Waffle Iron, Griswold #11, Victor 723

Re: Electrolysis Tank - Newbie!

K_Leonard, check Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist. There are often old, manual chargers for sale on there for reasonable prices.

Re: Biggest Haul Yet - Lots of Work Ahead

Nice haul. Sometimes it happens that way. In the front stack of skillets, it looks like the 2nd and 3rd from the bottom might be fancy handled, bottom gate marked??

For several years, I used nothing but electrolysis, since it cleans everything. The past 2 years I've started to use a lye tank first. It allows me to stack multiple pieces in the lye tank for...
