Collector grade. An amazing example of small foundry work This is what the manufacturers referred to as a deep long pan, but many still call a shallow fish fryer, poacher or griddle. The truth is it can be used for any or all of those things. Features a ~3/4” well, 1” wide lip Interior on this one is gorgeous not quite glassy, due to the pouring flaws at the gate, but due to how this was polished it is not far from being glassy. I think it will get there easily with just a little use. You can see where the iron was poured in via the gates, on the cooking surface but the polishing has smoothed most of it away. Double gated. Bottom shows some wood stove use with roughness due to the sulfur released.
Marked on the bottom with a raised 8 near one handle and “Ex. C” on the other side. Could this be an Excelsior? or maybe it was designating it as Extra something (I can’t think what the C might have stood for)?
22” 1/4 handle to handle, 20” 1/2 outer lip to outer lip x 10” wide, inner cooking area ~ 18” x 7” 5/8
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks or chips. Sits on it’s gate mark so has a short axis wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface as good as you can hope to find on one of these.
