Weight - 21 pounds 5 ounces. I considered this partially reconditioned because due to the size of the item I was not able to season it in the oven like my other cast iron pieces. This cooking surface was scrubbed with Ajax and a very coarse scouring pad for over 2 hours and very hot water.
The back side was scrubbed for a lot less time, since it's was already in pretty good condition. Then once stripped almost down to the original cast iron I had to season the skillet via stove top method using Crisco shortening. This took almost 2 1/2 hours and it smoked my house like crazy!
This is done by wiping on and off oil while heating and cooling sections of the pan until it the seasoning is finally turned black. It's a very tedious process.
But the results for the cooking area is stunning. The rest of the skillet will fully darken over time.
The skillet is unbelievably smooth on the cooking surface. The skillet does have a wobble (3 playing cards) and I think it is because of the original casting of the heat ring. When you flip the pan over you can see that the heat ring is a bit smaller over one section. I believe you can make this behemoth sit flat with a little more work.
On a gas range I don't see having any problems cooking with this piece. It sat fine on my gas range and actually covered almost all three of my cooking grates. Color Saturation - Dark Cooking Surface - Smooth Gas Stove Top Range - No issues Flat Surface - Three playing card wobble Other Issues - No other visible issues.
