Default Re: Any idea on this one?

Thanks for all the help. I thought it was a Blankenship when I got it, then for some reason I started to second guess my identification.

The picture of the cooking surface is out of focus. The cooking surface is very smooth. The rest of it is a bit rough in texture but not as rough as new Lodge stuff.

I agree with Hilditch in not being very practical for me to cook with as a 3 piece combo. Sure it would make a great chicken fryer.

I got this on my 240 mile cast iron hunt last weekend. I saw a lid, which I thought looked like a Blankenship, but that was 2 hours before I found and bought the deep skillet. Its an hour from home, I'm thinking about going back to get it. Anyone have an idea on value of the set? I dont want to have more in 2 pieces than what the complete combo is worth.

And this is just the top two pieces. Hope this helps you out.

I see it as more of a complete set of cast iron that conveniently fits together in one stack and therefore takes up much less space that a deep kettle a chicken fryer, a lid and a skillet would. I have the John C. Johnson lid. I see a lot of people that find the top two pieces but I have yet to see the bottom piece. I know you are not suppose to store CI with the lid on so I make little lifters out of cut up, clear suction tubing from work.

That is what modern Lodge is calling a "combo cooker"... a deep skillet and a shallow skillet that also works as a lid for the deep pan.

PS: If there is a bottom out there it should be easy to spot at 9" +/- high.

Although the material was changed, I think Blankenship's patent was used to design The Big Green Egg.

For anyone interested, I saw a 3 piece set of these in Marion, IL yesterday. It had BSR style handles. Large pot, smaller pot that fit inside, and a skillet lid. They were asking $95 for the set.
