Neither of us have ever seen another broiler like this and we have no idea who made it., and even the age is our best guess. It was probably done for a small stove maker meant to fit in their stove. it is beautifully cast and thin along the edges. Nice pointed broiler bars to lift the meat high over the heated iron and great rilled channels for allow the released fats to drain away from the meat. This has a scooped top handle with a swan neck angle, fat pour off drain and a lovely eye appeal. Concave ending to the pan on the broiler creating a half moon type edge. Someone put a lot of effort into casting this piece. Bottom has some light pitting from wood stove use. Nice gate mark. There is a crack running about half way up one of the grill lines, and a chip at that same location where it obviously was banged against something.
Marked: only with a raised 8 on the bottom handle.
Size: 11” 1/2 x 11” excluding handle at the longest point.
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
Cooking surface is very good and slightly roughened ad this piece would have been a bear to finely polish, but some smoothing was obviously.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
