Re: Was Told “Birdsboro,” Looking for Second Opinions on This ID

I would agree Birdsboro. The castings often seem to have flaws on the bottoms, and a sprue mark, probably obscured by pitting in this case.

Re: Unusual Griswold with Unfinished Bottom ??

Most likely just extensive utensil marking has roughed up the bottom. There doesn't seem to be any evidence that sidewall and cooking surface polish grinding were separate steps.

Re: ID Help #5 IL Marked Pan

Boosting the brightness gives a better look at the 5 and its position. Appears to be a formerly-marked Lodge.

Re: Help Identifying Family Heirloom

The orientation of the gate mark has no bearing on the position of the bail attachments. Like the lid handle, the bail attachments on the pattern were hinged or otherwise movable to allow its...

Re: Iron Mountain #5? HELP!

Iron Mountain would necessarily have a heat ring and a pattern number. The handle on the IM #5s are not considered normal in style, but they do differ from the handles of the rest of the IM skillets...

Re: Help ID Number 9 Pan

Looks like Favorite Piqua. That area that looks like the TM was excised and replaced with a blank, rather than just filling in the markings, is seen on theirs and CHF who bought the FPW patterns when...

Re: Graphite Plates or Stainless Steel?

I purchased graphite plates off eBay several years ago, and was happier with them over any metallic anode I had used previously. For two 12" x 17" x 3/8" it was around $36 shipped. They can be found...

Re: Magnalite 4682 Date?

Re: Whisper to Warm or Screaming Hot

Obviously, if putting a good sear on meat is your goal, you want the pan very hot. But advice on the best way to preheat a pan is usually given in the context of caution to avoid destroying...

Re: Wagner Waffle Iron

Cast iron waffle irons we phased out as electric units came into vogue. The 1407, 1408 and 1409 appear in an early 1940s catalog, but an addendum states the 1407, 1409 and their high frame...

Re: Wagner Waffle Iron

An exact year of manufacture is not discernable. The patent date appears to refer to one concerned with the design of the ball hinge. Wagner started using catalog numbers (the 1408) ca. 1924, so we...

Re: Cleaning Enameled and "glazed" Cast Iron

A clear glaze was applied to non-enameled surfaces by makers like Cousances and Le Creuset. It helps prevent rusting of those areas. Rims of pots and ridges of lids were the most likely to suffer...

Re: S.M. Co #10 Skillet

It's difficult to quote values on antique CI. You might find something in a junk store for $5 and the same at an antique store for $100. The BB and RB authors attempted to do so on the makers their...

Re: Help ID 3B Skillet W/heatring and Two Dots Under Handle

A BSR from their early automation period, before the DISA machines. Could have been sold labeled as Red Mountain or Century. The dots were probably some way to increase the number of pattern...

Re: Help with ID on Skillet Please

Numeral kinda looks more like a 5 or a 6. If top diameter is ~ 10.5" it would be an 8. Degree of casting imperfection on the handle tells us it's not an unmarked by a major maker, but probably a copy...

There are no Wagner #3s with heat rings (nor #2s). The one with the heavier font and no distinct rim reinforcement (it's blended) is the older of the two. #3s with the size number and pattern letter...

Re: No Trump Pan?

The pan was made as far back as the 1930-40s, catalogued as a #26 then. It disappears from 1950s and 60s catalogs but then returned again sometime after that. In a 1990 catalog it is listed as a...

Re: Favorite?

Doesn't quite look like a heat ring. Smooth bottom (usually), large spouts, "sort of" BSRish handle: Birdsboro. There should also be a small pattern number at 6 o'clock on the bottom. Or, by the...
