    cast iron??

    Sat Jun 30, 2012 3:17 pm Groupie
    Anyone else seriously into cast iron? Got reacquainted with CI after finding 3 Wganer skillets at a yard sale for almost nothing. They were crusty/cruddy and took some major cleaning before reseasoning... I LOVE it!

    I keep adding to my collection. Every piece came from a flea market, yard sale or thrift store for dirt cheap. Have to restrain myself and ONLY buy things I don't already have. Have a 2 burner Lodge grill/griddle... doesn't get used a lot, but just wanted it. Found an Abelsciver (spelling) pan. A cute little diamond shaped skillet that says something like "one egg" on bottom. Heavy Dutch oven... didn't have lid (have a glass one that fits) or handle. Just recently found 2 "corn" bread pans.

    Would LOVE to find muffin/pop-over pan(s) or loaf pan(s). Once well seasoned... and USED often, a piece can become pretty much non-stick.

    Any other cast iron fans here?

    I love my cast iron also. I've been using it for years, but only recently found that if you heat it before adding any oil, nothing sticks, well almost nothing. I can't believe I just found this out. I don't have near the collection you do though. I do have an abelskiver pan (also don't know the spelling). I make little pancake things in it with a drop of some kind of jelly or applesauce in the center while it cooks. Yum. Most of my pans are from my mother and an old maid neighbor, so are probably 75+ years old.

    I have about 300 pieces of cast iron. Just ask, if you have any questions. icon_smile.gif

    Just used a Griswold 9/609 round griddle to make challah bread French toast. 9 is the size. 609 is the pattern number.

    Users are in the pantry

    The rest are in the basement on metal shelves from Home Depot. The ones in the basement get Mineral Oil USP rather than a food-grade oil.


    Here's using muffin/popover pans and New England-style gem pans for cornbread.

    All I can say is WOW!! WOuld LOVE to find those muffin and small loaf pans!! Also keeping eyes open for a DEEP skillet... like for chicken. I know I could probably find someplace to buy them, but love the hunt! A lot of my finds seem to be from someone clearing out a house and totally NOT getting how great old cast iron can be... even if it does need a bit of sprucing up or is heavy. Your collection has just reinforced my need to find more!

    I love cast iron. Like you I'm a relatively new user and collector. I always manage to pick up a bargain. And food has never tasted better. It's a dream to cook with. And makes the rest of my cookware seem so flimsy.

    count me in on the cast iron.. I have a cast iron wok that I bought a lid for at a restaurant supply house.. I use it both as intended and as a dutch oven.. Preferred method of cooking along with my pressure cooker.. Ordered great cast iron loaf pans and muffin pans on Amazon...
