This pan is often called by a different name – that starts with the letter P – because of the shape of the mold. It is a Lodge Acorn Pan, modeled after the California Oak Acorn. The pan was manufactured by the Lodge Mfg. Co. between 1925 and 1940. Because of its unique design, the pan is highly sought-after, and scarce.
The acorn pan is 11-7/8″ long handle to handle. 10-3/8″ long from end of mold section. It is 6-1/2″ wide. It is in minty condition. Because of the shape of the acorns, the pan sits on the deepest part of the mold. It will rock from side to side when pressed, but that is because of the characteristics of the pan and not because of a defect.
The pan is clean and has been heat-seasoned both with Crisco and a mixture of canola and coconut oils, and beeswax. It is a beautiful example of the Lodge acorn pan!
