    As I mentioned in the previous cast iron thread, I would be inheriting my grandmothers and great grandmothers cast iron this weekend. I wen tover yesterday and picked it up. I was really suprised and can't wait to cook in my new cook ware. I received a 10" Griswold skillet, a 12" Wagner Ware skillet, a 10" Wangner Ware "stockpot" with a wire bail handle, and a 10" Martin pot with the regular handle and lid.

    I know the history of Griswold but do any of you folks know anything about Wanger Ware or Martin?

    Thanks

    I have a 10" skillet that was passed on from my grandmother to my mother and then to me. My first wife washed it...we are no longer married. It took me a while to restore the seasoning...but once again...it bakes great cornbread. My "current wife" does not touch it.

    I love cast iron cook ware, mechanical watches, fountain pens, fast motorcycles, sailboats, pre-lock S&W revolvers, and 1911s...but I carry a Glock.

    The skillets are on the grill for just a little more seasoning. They in no way need it but I just need to do it.

    First recipe will be japaleno cornbread in one and chicken fried steak in the other.

    I've got both Griswold and Wagner cast iron dutch ovens going back well over thirty years.

    Just keep 'em oiled, clean with little to no soap, heat back up on the burner after you've hand washed, dry and then re-oil.

    That's all there is to using fantastic cookware that will last generations of use.

    Yeah I still haven't seasoned mine, then again I don't get a chance to cook very often.
