This No. 5 skillet was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania in the 1940’s.
It features the number 5 on the underside, along with the pattern number 1030 A, and a heat ring. The markings are crisp and clear.
It is approx 12-3/8″ long, including the handle, and 8-7/8″ wide at the pouring spouts. It sits flat.
The #5 skillet is a very versatile size! It can be used for a couple of eggs in the morning, to a single steak or chicken breast in the evening, or a giant skillet cookie!
It’s in near-mint condition. The cooking surface has a beautiful glossy, black patina with only very, very light signs of use. , and the underside is free from the pitting one often sees on vintage pans.
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 our special mixture of coconut & canola oils, and beeswax. It is ready for immediate use or display!
