#5 524C sits flat, no bow to the inside bottom cooking surface, very smooth cooking surface but there is extremely shallow pin point type pitting and utensil marks that can be seen but not felt and are under the seasoning. #6 699 has a 1/16.Inch wobble, has an extremely shallow downward bow to the cooking surface I can slide the corner of a playing card under the center of a 6 ruler being used as a gauge, cooking surface has a slight textured feeling due to extremely shallow pin point type pitting and circular utensil marks. Most of this is under the seasoning. #8 704G sits flat, no bow to the cooking surface, shallow pitting and utensil marks throughout, some of this can still be felt. #9 710B sits flat, no bow to the cooking surface, shallow pitting and utensil marks throughout, some of this can still be felt.
There is also pitting on the exterior bottom. I clean all of my cast iron back to the original gun metal gray casting or as close as I can.
This way it has no residue or contaminants from previous use or storage. The new owner can use with confidence in their safety. I only season with three coats of solid vegetable shortening in the oven for about ten hours. This is why my cast iron does not appear black. It usually amber brown in color.
You could perhaps say it has been restored as close as possible to its original condition. There is a possibility that some of what I refer to as shallow pin point pitting is actually original to the casting. I do no oil my cast iron so they show up shiny or better for the pictures. I do not put my cast iron in a smoker to get it black or paint it black. I do not put varnish on the inside cooking surface to make it appear glass shiny and smooth!I prefer to list as many flaws as I can see, find, or think. All of our cast iron cookware pictures are taken outside in the natural light. We try never to use a flash to obscure the surfaces or enhance them. We dont like looking into a black hole for a picture of the skillet or pot and dont imagine that you do either. We give you full pictures of the top and bottom and not just a small section of what I want you to see. I always feel like something is being hidden behind the black hole or to the surrounding area of the one small section. If you need additional information, please send a message. And now for the not so fine print. All payments must be received within 7 days. We pack all cast iron pieces in the method recommended by the Griswold Cast Iron Association.
