Default Re: Hammered Chrome Lodge - Cleaning?

Wow, that's nice.

By my understanding, plated pieces where the plating has worn through in places are worth about the same as similar unplated pieces.

But pieces where the plating is still completely intact are worth more than their non-plated equivalents. They're just a lot more rare.

If you clean all that gunk off the inside and outside and find the plating truly is completely intact, you've got yourself quite a piece there. And even if it's worn, that's still quite a piece.

I got into CI due to inheriting my grandmother's pieces as well (though I sat on them for 20 years before I "woke up"). Then I added a lot more pieces to them, with no regrets. Perhaps this will lead you down a similar path. If so, great cooking times ahead.
