This No. 5 pan was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1939-1944.
It features the Griswold small logo with “NO. 5” above it, and “ERIE PA.” below, along with the pattern number, 724 G. The writing is crisp and clear.
The cooking surface is approx 6-1/2″ in diameter and the pan is 8-3/4″ across the pouring spouts.
The interior is beautiful. The original grinding marks are still prominent on the interior walls, and the cooking surface has only very light signs of use. There is a very small patch of textural variation on the outer cooking surface between the handle and the right pouring spout. Please see the pictures.
This pan has a little wear on the underside opposite the handle. This is indicated by a shinier, smoother surface than the rest of the pan. This has also meant that the pan doesn’t sit entirely flat on a glass cooktop. When I press on the rims of the pan, there is almost no movement (a folded piece of paper can slip about an inch under the surface opposite the handle), however it spins.
As this amount of movement is so small, this pan will be a great cooker on both gas and electric cooktops – just don’t forget to heat your pan first! You can read more on pan movement on our blog article here.
This lovely skillet has been thoroughly cleaned and heat-seasoned with our special mixture of coconut & canola oils, and beeswax. It is ready for immediate use or display!
