Wagner #3ís

Is there a difference in age between these two pans or is it simply a different mold around the same time period. The logo seems the same, but there are a couple differences.

Thrifty Iron II

I was a little skepticalÖ but it turned out that these were salvageable beyond my expectations with copious elbow grease and a lye tank. It seems like someone tried to restore the unmarked Wagner....

Re: Thrifty Iron

Yes, theyíre two different pans, one Wagner and one Favorite. Iím kind of bummed out that Iíll have to locate a lid for it haha. But, at 5 dollars, I think itís a good deal. Why in the heck would it...

Re: Antique Phonies

I believe you’ve got me thinking a little differently about that pan now. Hahaha! If they drop the price a bit, I’ll think about it. I have a lodge one… I didn’t even think to fry an egg in there. I...

Re: Emeril Chicken Roaster

There is a lot of good information on this site. My hands were itchy when I first got into the game. I was wanting to buy anything old and I got burned a few times. I find a lot of unmarked vintage...

Re: Antique Phonies

Thanks, Doug. You’re the man. I think they wanted 35 for it. They’ll get it from someone else. I cook in everything I buy and I just don’t see myself frying eggs in this little pan enough to justify...

Re: Identity Crisis

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It really seems like a Lodge. Even when I put it right up next to it. Identical in the handle.

Re: Identity Crisis

My apologies for the confusion. I didnít have one of the pans pictured, but I do believe it to be a Lodge.. it has the notches in the heat ring, but it had some swirling pattern on the finish. I read...

Any ideas on this? I donít see any markings on it. Where I thought there was a mark, was actually a ding. Thing was absolutely disgusting before the lye bath. Also, while Iím at it, I picked up a...

Re: Wagner Pots

Nice!! Iím thrilled to know theyíre over a century old. They really are useful pots. But why Scotch pots? Butterscotch? I could see that needing constant stirring.
