Default Re: Heat Ring is an Indented Groove

Probably an Asian import. The design is not consistent with any known USA makers of unmarked goods. The small pour spouts and thick walls for its size indicate it was made using automated molding machinery, so is not all that old. The black is normally seasoning build-up, but people have been known to paint cast iron cookware pieces for various reasons. It should come off with lye or electrolysis.
