Ten piece set of Wapak cast iron skillets. Sizes #12, (14"), #11, (13"), #10, (12"), #9, (11"), #8 (10-1/2"), #7 (10"), #6 (9"), #5 (8"), #4 (7"), & #3 (6-1/2"). The 3 & 4 are the "tapered" logo type, and the rest are "strait" logo type. All have heat rings except the #3. There are no cracks, breaks, etc.Overall, there may be casting flaws (Wapak stuff is known for this, part of their charm), scratches, utensil marks, ghosting, staining, dark spots from oil pooling during seasoning, etc. Specifically want to point out, there are flea bites / minor pitting on the #7 (back and cook surface), and a bit of light spotting on the back of the #4. Please study the pictures, use the zoom, and judge them for yourself. Overall a pretty flat set, nothing is warped or way out, but there are a few that have a bit of movement...
They have not been used since the restoration process. Photos were taken outdoors in natural light and are a big part of the description. I've restored hundreds of pieces of cast iron cookware. All go through lye to remove any crud, organic material, seasoning, etc. Then I run them through the electrolysis process to remove any corrosion, rust, impurities, etc.They are scrubbed by hand using dish liquid, stainless steel scouring pads, stainless steel brushes, and magic erasers under cold water to bring them back to the bare metal finish. Finally, all pieces are run through three rounds of seasoning using vegetable shortening. Cast iron cookware will last hundreds of years and generations if properly taken care of.
These are beautiful, heirloom quality pieces made right here in the USA. Will be bubble wrapped and surrounded by packing material to ensure that they don't shift in transit.
They are not making cookware like this anymore, and I would consider it tragic if anything were to happen to these in transit. Just contact me before to make sure we can make arrangements that work for both of us and I'll add the option to the listing. If you have any questions, need additional pictures, or anything else please message me. Thank you for viewing this listing.
