This beautiful cast iron lid will fit a Griswold number 8 tite-top Dutch oven or roaster (it does not have “ears” to cover the pour spouts on a skillet). It has a high dome, and the “button” logo on top of the lid. The underside is coated – this is the “easy-clean” lid. It carries the large block logo, 8 SELF BASTING, a long patent number, and the pattern number on the underside. It also has concentric raised circles which serve to make the lid self-basting.
The lid measures 10-1/2″ in diameter. The inner ridge, which fits into the oven, measures 9-3/4″ as measured from the outer side (i.e. it will fit into a 9-3/4″ opening). There is one air bubble at about 3:00 on the inside rim. It is of no consequence; I point it out in the interest of being thorough.
The lid has been cleaned to bare iron and heat-seasoned with a mixture of coconut and canola oils and beeswax. Pam was also used to get into some of the nooks and crannies. The lid is ready for use!
