Griswold #12 Large Logo - BLOCK Letter, with Heat Ring. Please see all excellent photos (don't be fooled by poor photography). This pan has been Professionally restored by ironspoon - me. Top Quality restoration - 100% natural - No toxic chemicals.
Re-seasoned properly, and expertly with 100% natural edible vegetable based drying oil. A drying oil is an oil that hardens to a tough, solid film after a period of exposure to air. The oil hardens through a chemical reaction in which the components cross-link (and hence, polymerize) by the action of oxygen (not through the evaporation of water or other solvents).
The first seasoning is all important - you only get one chance. This is a very good start to the years of seasoning to come. This pan is perfectly dry... Not shined up with oil for photos. Ready again, for a lifetime of use.The interior surface is good - has some pitting. The exterior surface is excellent. Measures 13 3/8 inches in diameter, 18 3/4 inches long and 2 1/2 inches tall. 11 1/2 inch cooking surface. Please see below for use and care tips. Thanks so much for looking. For more great GRISWOLD cookware! Please let me know BEFORE paying, and I'll send you a revised invoice.
Use and care tips: First... I love my vintage cast iron frying pans. I have quite a collection of Griswold pans, that I use everyday.
Tips: These "new" pans will require a bit of time to build up great seasoning. If you need a screaming red hot pan to sear your tuna steak...Maybe pick a different pan. But don't overheat it - else the seasoning will burn off. I have one pan that I burn the heck out of if need be (el cheapo), but a treasured Griswold to fry my eggs. Clean your pans with care... And they will care for you.
My pans, that are seasoned well, I rarely wash. I wipe them clean and dry with a paper towel, and hang them back up. If there is some stuck stuff, try coarse salt as an abrasive while wiping them clean. Sometimes there is more stubborn crust to remove...Put a little water in the pan and heat on high on your stove top. Use a flat bottom wood spatula to gently remove the "stuff".
Wipe dry with a paper towel, and apply a very light coat of vegetable oil. Avoid scrubbing with brillo type scrubbers at all cost. Sometimes you have to, but try to avoid dish soap...
Use extra hot water instead. I always wipe a tiny bit of vegetable oil on the interior of my pans before hanging them back up.
A lifetime of natural non-stick cooking awaits you if you do it right. Please don't cook for your family in a pan that has used for... Years of seasoning should be...
