Restored GRISWOLD made PURITAN Cast Iron #9 Griddle, Well Seasoned, Ready to Use. This is a round griddle made by Griswold for Puritan.
The Favorite foundry also made Puritan pans, but the four digit number on this one indicates it was made by Griswold (both foundries made beautiful Puritan pans). There is some discoloration on the cooking surface of the griddle as shown in the pictures. Discolorations tend to even out as you add more seasoning to the pan while using it.This style of griddle always takes some use to darken it well, I think because of how smooth they ground it at the foundry. Griddle isn't perfectly flat. It has a movement if it's sitting on glass and the wobble seems to be neutralized by an index card.
It wouldn't bother me at all on my gas grates. I personally wouldn't even think of cooking a meal for my family in some of those pans.I really think some people think "restored" means they've slapped some oil on it. Every pan I sell has been restored by removing the old seasoning/gunk via electrolysis then they are well seasoned with a minimum of three rounds of seasoning. I'm a perfectionist with a good work ethic and I always try my hardest to make every pan look as new as possible. If there is some discoloration left in a pan, it's because it's not coming off. You will NOT be cooking on some stranger's yucky gunky mess.
Pan is ready to use or gift as soon as it gets to your home. I currently have a very nice Favorite made Puritan #9 skillet for sale.
