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.

Re: R & E Manufacturing Co. Gem Pan

Great piece! Love the history. I used my Waterman Gem and Erie muffin pan the other day and they worked like a charm. Keep on cooking!

Re: Martin Camp Oven

I can only say that is a killer piece. Just speaks to me with the font and history.

It sure looks like it, doesn't it? It was the first Erie muffin pan that I found.

Re: “Faith, Grace, Mercy, Truth.” Waterman Waffle Iron, 1853

Thanks! This has turned me on to Waterman. I have bought another regular gem pan but will be on the lookout for the matching triangle, circle, oval gem pan, as well.

Re: Wagner Sidney #7

Is it possible the heat ring was ground off? I don't remember seeing a smooth bottom for that age?

Re: Griswold Questions

Not sure I have come across a slant logo without heat ring yet. Although I haven't been doing this that long.

Re: Biggest Haul Yet - Lots of Work Ahead

I will keep posting them as I complete them. I think I have some small block, CHF, and large block next. I try to get one pan done a day and then season a load on the weekends. Doesn't always work...

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

Great pieces there!

Were they from a collector or someone that just had them? I am a story guy, I always like the story behind how people found them, why they had them, etc. Makes it a living,...

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

This is great. I had one Griswold Aluminum Dutch Oven that cleaned up so well with just mother's and some carbon off. It sold within a day.

You did some mighty fine work there!
