I see a sad iron heater with handles typical of its era on both ends, and a regular handle griddle with no extra handle. Any markings indicative of a maker are normally on the bottom, so no help there.

ok, you are right, it appears to be part of the top griddle but it is a handle from underneath. How was a sad iron heater used?

thanks,
Dean

Normally by removing a bridge piece between two stove eyes to create an elongated oval opening in which to set it.

So, to revive this thread, am I correct in understanding that the bottom, larger piece is a sad iron heater?
At the 7:00 mark in this video, Brandon begins talking about a griddle that is similarly shaped so I'm confused about what these pieces actually are.

The longer piece in the photo is what's being called a sad iron heater. Regardless of what the shallow pan is being described as in the video, its intended use was as a sad iron heater. The deeper pan could have been used as such as well. "Long pans" of the era are typically seen with a draining lip at one corner. This is not to say, however, that no one ever employed a sad iron heater as a cooking device; after the era of woodstove popularity, the same patterns are seen advertised by some makers as "long pans" or fish fryers.

Thank you for that clarification. What year are those catalog pages?
