These large pans are fabulous for feeding a family!
This pan was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1920 – 1930.
It features the Griswold large block logo, with CAST IRON SKILLET 14″ above, and “ERIE, PA, U.S.A.” below, along with the pattern number 718 A. The writing is crisp and clear.
This pan is 16-3/8″ wide at the pouring spouts, and 21-3/8″ long, including the handle. There is a tiny amount of movement when I press firmly on the rim – about a dime’s worth. It is suitable for all cooking surfaces!
There are some beautiful features – the original grinding marks are still prominent on the interior walls and apart from some rough patches visible in the pictures, the cooking surface has only very light signs of use.
The exterior has some pinpricks, likely from air bubbles during the casting process. This pan is going to be a great cooker!
I have taken lots of pictures so please click on the magnifying glass to see them in detail.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned, and heat-seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
