Our wonderful old cookware is featured on Grub Street as one of the 18 things that celebrated American chefs want as a gift this holiday season. How nice!

We had a fun interview with Eva Katz of thekitchn.com as part of their article: “How Did the Cast Iron Skillet Take Over the World?”

Extra Crispy, August 2016
We are featured in an interesting historical article about waffle irons on the “Extra Crispy” breakfast website. You can find the article – “The History of Waffle Irons is Hot and Greasy,” here. Extra Crispy gave me permission to reprint just a few paragraphs, so here you go!
“Mary Theisen, who restores and sells cast iron as The Pan Handler and has a special expertise in Griswold products, says, “I like to think that I’m restoring and putting back into use pieces of American history. So to me, it’s not just a pan, it’s not just any pan, it’s something that could have been around for over a hundred years. I like knowing that I’m using a piece that is not going to be used, abused, and then thrown into a landfill.” Cast iron is also a “greener” alternative given its longevity, and sidesteps any health risks that nonstick coatings might have. “It’s got health benefits with the leaching of iron. It’s not toxic chemicals leaching.” Waffle irons, she says, enjoy particular rushes around certain holidays, such as Griswold’s “star heart”maker that forges heart-shaped waffles. I forget which holiday they are popular around. I think Presidents’ Day?”
Of course, our heart-star pieces are a huge hit around Valentine’s Day and the Christmas holiday. But then, Valentine’s Day is close to President’s Day, right?

Editor Josh Miller and I wrote an article about the O’Neil Cast Iron Collection. It is reprinted (with permission) below. One of our Griswold pans stars on the cover of Southern Cast Iron. Our Bundt pans are featured in a separate article, along with some mouth-watering recipes!
