Guaranteed to be authentic vintage Vollrath cast iron cookware, which is lighter in weight than the new cast iron.The craftsmanship, quality, and pride from this era has been lost. Cleaning : I clean all of my cast iron back to the original metal gray casting or as close as I can with electrolysis, and elbow grease. I perform all my cleaning without the used of any power tools to buff or polish beautifully vintage cast iron. This removes residue, caked on grease, or contaminants from previous use or storage. The new owner can use with confidence in their safety. I season with three coats of solid vegetable shortening in the oven for about 6-9 hours. My cast iron does not appear black, but rather a dark bronze. Perhaps you can say it has been restored as close as possible to its original condition. All the nasty baked on crud and carbon buildup have been cleaned off which leaves you with a nice piece for use. It is ready to be included in your cooking rotation the day it is received. I do not oil my cast iron so to look better for the pictures. I do not varnish, paint, or smoke my cast iron on the inside cooking surface to make it appear shiny and smooth!
