Chuck steak seared and tossed the oven for 2 hrs at 350 deg with a little Montreal Steak Seasoning.


What do you guys with larger numbers of skillets do for lids? I've passed on some nice pieces because with out a lit I dont think I would use it.

I've never used a lid on my cast iron frying pans. If I need a lid, I'll use a dutch oven.  :) 

If you find a decent #10, at a good price, that you don't want, let me know.  My #9 is just a little too small to cook an antire lingcod filet.

Garage sale find. Pre 60s unmarked Wagner #8 10.5 inch skillet. $5 and some elbow grease, we will see how it turns out. I'm soaking it in vinegar right now and will clean it and season it tonight.

A few hour soak and a wire wheel later. Almost ready for the oven.

I have several glass lids from other cookware that fit my  iron skillets just fine.
Got them when buying other pans or for a couple dollars at the local thrift store.

So can you with a wire wheel and elbow grease can you make cheap cast iron usable?

If you are asking about newer Lodge cast iron. If you want to, you can take an orbital sander to the cooking surface and sand it smooth and then reseason it. It is iron so you really can't hurt it. But the seasoning process can take hours.

So I found an import new skillet like what you describe at a 2nd hand store. I sanded and seasoned it, and my brother loves it.

Ready for many years of use. That was a very satisfying project. We will see how it cooks. I might take a sander to the inside to smooth out some pitting.

I dont think this is necessary with many of the older piesces. if you were going to do it you should have done it right after wire wheeling it.   :twocents:

Breaded porkchops fried in the skillet then put in the oven. Just added the gravy to cook for another 30 min!

I got this #6 Griswold  in a cabin cleanup. This is the picture after wire wheeling the rust off it. Turned out pretty smooth. The last pic is of a alum lid I think that might be my universal lid for a bunch of my pots and skillets. Any one heard of Super Maid Cookware?
