Default #3 CHF

Picked this up last weekend with the raised number Lodge. Did CHF make any smooth bottoms? If not someone did a heck of a job making this one. Am surprised it sits flat. Disappointed no heat ring.

CHF made that using a Piqua pattern. When Favorite Stove & Range went under CHF bought the tooling and patterns.

That looks like a nice skillet! I hope I find something as nice someday!

Sid,

Keep at it and you will find some pieces that are as you said in your introduction message, older than you.

Good luck.

I would count that one as having a heat ring... and not an actual 'smooth bottom' skillet. Favorite had that odd, rolled over heat ring and on the smaller pans it sometimes seems less defined. yours seems to be typical of a Favorite/CHF 3.

D,

Thanks for the insights. Now that i look at it again, I see what you mean. It definitely is not completely flat and it has not been "ground down". Is there a book or site I can go to and learn more? In other words, how do I learn what you know for this or other brands?
