Any Griswold fans/collectors?

Postby caseydog » Wed Aug 01, 2007 3:10 pm

My wife and I had a bunch -- now my ex-wife has has a bunch, and I have one. :(

I would love to find a Griswold DO for a decent price.

I like the old Cast Iron because it seems to be smoother. The Lodge stuff seems awfully rough.

I have a few pieces by Griswold, but as far as collecting the older stuff goes...
I'm after the Wapak Indianheads these days. :twisted:

I've never had any problems with food getting stuck on the newer stuff...
What I have found, is the newer rough stuff is much easier to season than the older smooth stuff.
The oil seems to stay put when seasoning new stuff...
I sure get a lot of drips and runs when seasoning the old stuff...

I still have a couple Griswold #9 frying pans looking for a home. :)
