Default Re: Old Cast Iron Vs New Steel Pans?

The "Old" vs "New" both have valid points of discussion. Since this is an information site most discussions are based on "collecting" and deals we find while on a hunt for elusive pieces. Never been a big friend of eBay listings as the prices there fluctuate way out of proportion regardless of what one is looking for.
I will say this...When it comes to Gem Pans, Dutch Ovens, Waffle Irons and specialty pieces made of Cast Iron, steel pieces do not have a leg to stand on.
It is as you say "thrill of the hunt" that makes it worth while for most all of us and from a collector/user point of view there are other sites besides eBay that vintage CI can be obtained without having to pay an arm and leg for.
