Re: Favorite Chicken Fryer

Katker did not make Favorite cookware, as that part of the business had been sold to CHF.

Re: Windscreen/heat Shield Made from Used License Plates

The first google result for "camp oven windscreen license plates" is https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/my-new-dutch-oven-heat-shield.93069/ Although links to the photos in the OP are dead,...

Re: Favorite Chicken Fryer

As noted on the page referenced, Favorite Piqua Ware went out of business in 1935, and sold their cookware patterns to Chicago Hardware Foundry, who altered them to add their name. Concrete...

Re: I Need Help Identifying Skillet

Older Wagners also had non-blended handle ridges. But I see what you're saying, I wonder if it's the way the lighting is from the side that makes the heat ring not look as "rolled" (really old...

Re: I Need Help Identifying Skillet

Appears to be an older unmarked Wagner. There's no clear information supporting the notches as being intentional; they are more likely some type of occasional damage suffered by patterns, which were...

Re: Can Anyone Help Me Identifying These Items?

Wagner designated most all its gem, muffin and bread pans with a unique letter See: http://www.castironcollector.com/gems.php#wagner This one, however, appears to be a knock-off that (shamelessly)...

Re: P.F. Crossan

Seems like if it was the manufacturer's mark (as opposed to a molder's mark) it would be a bit less cryptic and actually use the initial of the manufacturer's last name. Since the only reference I...

Re: Unmarked 3 Notch

3 notches alone don't automatically make a Lodge. Lodge "Top O' Stove Broilers", before the egg logo, had size marks at 12 o'clock like their regular skillets, either alone or with TB below, and with...

Re: 10 1/2" Skillet

The configuration of the heat ring "grid" puts some in mind of the Mercedes Benz logo.

Re: Bean Pot Lid

Depends on your definition of a bean pot. If a straight-sided flat-bottom kettle, they either came with one or one was noted as being offered, either specifically or a stock lid for something else...

Re: 10 1/2" Skillet

Perhaps it was an adhesion problem and removal was not all that difficult. I note that we don't ever seem to see these with a partial coating remaining.

Re: 10 1/2" Skillet

BSR made some with the same HR style. But anyone familiar with late BSR and late Wagner markings and handle styles should be able to tell the difference. Who copied whom is unclear. BSR did Teflon...

Re: Favorite Waffle Irons

The BB is of no real help on most Favorite Piqua. Everything shown is dated 1916-1935 or "ca. 1920s", unless it's a predecessor W.C. Davis piece. Only one waffle iron is shown (other than a toy) and...

Re: Cleaning or Replacing Thermometer in Wagner Dutch Oven?

Best to note the dates when responding to search results. The OP only ever posted here twice, both times this thread. Perhaps someone else will see and have the answer.

Re: Looking for Info Hammered/plated Chicken Fryer

Lye-based oven cleaner spray would be fine. Since you're not concerned about the cooking surface being non-stick. And it will not damage the chrome. Vinegar is for rust, so no apparent need for it...

Re: Looking for Info Hammered/plated Chicken Fryer

It is Lodge, likely early 1940s. Lodge handles are all over the place, from time period to time period and from size to size. The interior plating has worn off from use, a common scenario. A trip...

Re: Cast Iron Spatula?

P.T. Barnum was right. Several appear to have been sold by the same seller(s). They don't seem particularly practical. Hopefully, intact vintage skillets are not being used to make them.

Re: Lamb Mold

Griswold made multiple versions of the lamb cake mold. The earliest (1920s) has loop handles on both halves, round leveling pegs and p/ns 947/948. It is also known as the "leg forward" version as the...

Re: Erie #7 Bean Pot

I've always seen it akin to someone trying to call the earliest Model T automobiles, which didn't say Ford on the radiator, "pre-Ford".

Re: Erie #7 Bean Pot

Pieces marked ERIE are Griswold. "Pre-Griswold" is an often-seen but incorrect term for them. The ring is an assist handle for pouring.

Re: Help Identifying This Chicken Fryer

The limit is three attached images per post.

Yes, that is the middle section of a combo cooker. The bottom would be like a dutch oven pot, the top would be dual purpose as a lid or a skillet....

Re: Help Identifying This Chicken Fryer

Definitely not Wagner. Looks more like part of a combo cooker.

Re: Gem Pan Dough?

The Gem & Muffin Pans page (link at bottom of page) gives a general description of what constitutes a "gem". A web search of "gem batter recipe" returns several examples.

Re: Dating Griswold Muffin Pans

There are 15 variations of the #10/948 muffin, only 2 of the #10/949 popover. One might reasonably assume the TM revisions follow the general time line of those of the skillets to at least some...

Re: Any Idea on Who Made This and When?

Without a name (or even sometimes initials, e.g. "P.B. & Co.") on them, old bottom gated pieces like this are rarely if ever identifiable as to maker. Handle designs were more representative of...
