Default Magnalite Round Roaster Restoration

If you can find these in decent shape-- no cracks, gouges, or pitting-- restoration is fairly easy. This one took about an hour:

It started out as a spinner, too, but a couple of well-placed whacks with a rubber mallet solved that.

Beautiful Doug. Have the Magnalite become an expensive collectible yet or are they still very reasonable? No, I don't plan to get into them, I have my hands full of heavy old iron.

Many of those like this one seem to go unsold on eBay. But, if you want one, and are willing to bide your time, you can get one in good condition for a good price. I thought $20 for one in this condition, with no apparent issues beyond the normal discoloration and loss of luster, to be about right.

Well then, I guess I should go buy the Magnalite sauce pans that have been languishing at one of my favorite antique malls in similar condition at $10 each.
