Re: WAPAK and FAVORITE WARE Waffle Iron Finds Today

Really nice job on those paddles. Those are really great finds.

I also have a weakness for Favorite pieces. I have the high base square Favorite waffle iron that I won't part with.

Re: Got Lucky This Week

Nice finds, the ERIE looks like it is in good shape. Shame about the pitting on the other skillet but hopefully will be a good user for you.

Re: Fully Enameled Griswold Bread Stick Pan #22

I have also never seen an enameled bread stick pan, seems like such a complex process for little return. It could be your flash but the sheen looks off to me. On top of this the finish looks looks...

Re: I Almost Was Rich

While I don't see a clear pic of the handle there is nothing telling me this is not a small logo Griswold. The font looks good. The handle starting from the base looks good and there are not many...

Re: Cake Molds for Chocolate

I have had varied success with the molds. I found the rabbit to be too difficult to use due to the indentations. I was able to make a Santa and most of a lamb. I also have a Pudgy Pig mold that is...

Re: Lodge Christmas Holiday Pan 5HI2


I have that pan and the snowman which I use to make shortbread. Great pans. I would guess the 1990's but Doug may have a better answer. There was also a long thread about Lodge Commemorative...

Re: Your Thoughts on Cooking with Early Vs Later Griswolds

One of my first restores was also a #8 small logo. Although I have a large collection of earlier Erie /Griswolds I much prefer the small logo for cooking. It goes from stove top to oven with ease and...

Re: Cleaning Chrome Plated Pans

I second Doug's response. I have restored many skillets with either complete or partial plating using a 10amp charger. I have never seen a loss of intact plating.

Re: GF Filley #5

This pan came out really well. I am big fan of Filley bake ware, I use my #1 and #8 to make uniquely shaped mini cornbread.

Re: Help Identifying Gate Marked, Closed Frame, Gem Pan with #5

I can't tell you who made it but I can say this maker produced other numbered versions that fit with the Waterman pattern numbers. All of them are closed framed. I have three of these and they do...

Re: What Not to Cook in CI?

Admittedly this was not my brightest moment - I made blueberry pancakes on a newly seasoned griddle. Blueberries are acidic and spotted the griddle. It took 6 months of constant use to cover the...

T. & C. Clark & Company Soup Digester

It has been a while since I stumbled across a piece of CI like this. This is apparently a three gallon soup digester from T. & C. Clark & Company in England. Appears to be like a fairly early form of...

Re: Clean or Not to Clean?

I restore the vast majority of my CI. A few of my bulge kettles and G.F. Filley display better with their original patina.

Re: Excelsior St Louis Cast Iron Skillet


Nice skillet. I collect G.F Filley items. Marked skillets are hard to come by. I have every gem pan, waffle, lids and a dutch oven but have not yet secured a skillet. Very nice find.

Re: Plated Cast Iron?

I tend to steer clear of plated pieces, however years of build up often disguises them. It is rare to find a piece with intact plating. Pieces with worn plating don't sell well but make great users.

Re: Shepard Hardware Co. Info.

Max, these are nice pans, I bake with this one. These were made by the same company that produced so many famous and valuable cast iron banks. There are at least two other popover pans / gem pans...

Re: Identification Help

Likely Chicago Hardware, they often are found with an 87 follow by a smaller letter on the rear. I usually see these in the hammered style.

Re: Griswold Food/meat Grinder

Overall they have little value, many were produced and they have almost no use in today's world. I see them all the time for $5 and have never picked one up.

You could check on Ebay and see what...

Re: Please Help Identifying

It really looks like pitting. You are in the best place to judge. If it were me I would walk away. There is always something else down the road.

Re: Please Help Identifying

I would pass on that one if I were you. I can't id from the images but I see either pitting or a bad cast.
