yeah, I'd say you got a deal. that's a beauty.

looks like one of those places setting the prices by the size... oh a 9... that's big so it should be priced higher... and the six is smaller so it should be priced less.

Now... to find the #6 trivet...

Can you tell me how you cleaned it? My SIL was impressed by the before & after pictures! Thanks.

Betsy, sorry for the delay. I somehow missed your post until last night.

Anyway, I pretty much use the process described here:

http://www.castironcollector.com/restore.php
http://www.castironcollector.com/cleaning.php

For me, cleaning is 2 or 3 steps. Step 1 is letting the piece enjoy some time in a lye bath. The amount of time is judgement based upon the amount of crud it has. After removing the piece from the lye "spa", I rinse it off (outside) and use a stainless steel brush and stainless steel Chore Boy(TM) to remove the remaining crud. Step 2, if needed involves using oven cleaner (see Doug's note about not using low fume). This DO had some really caked on crud in the letters/numbers of the logo on the bottom of the pot and it was necessary to use the oven cleaner after a few days in the lye "spa" to get it out. Removing this type of crud requires patience and elbow grease. Step 3 is using electrolysis(e-tank) to remove rust.

Once the piece comes out of the e-tank. I wash it off again outside before bringing it into the kitchen to begin initial seasoning.

Once it is out of the e-tank, I try to get it cleaned and in the oven ASAP to minimize flash rusting.

Interesting that you use both a lye bath and oven cleaner, usually people use one or the other.

Eric,

I only use the oven cleaner when there is residual crud that the lye bath does not remove. I've only done it about 3 times in the past year. Most of the time it is lye spa to e-tank.

since Wally found one of these I thought I'd share this 'find' from someone on the reddit cast iron page.

WOW!!!!!

First reaction is it's too good to be true, but it looks very nice on the outside. Unfortunately, there is no pictures of the inside of the pot.

Even so, think it would be very tough to pass up.

I'm seasoning a #6 Griswold DO just like that right now. Unfortunately the lid was not included. If I could find a lid for around $100 I'd buy it. Great deal, I'm super jealous!
