Story

Originally a metal hinge manufacturer, the Griswold company began producing cast iron in 1885, after a fire destroyed the original hinge factory. Family owned for 72 years, the Griswold factory ended its cast iron production in 1957. Since then, the Griswold name has become the most collected and highly sought after of all vintage cast iron manufacturers.

Faithfully and fully restored by Best Made, this historical cast iron piece comes handsomely packaged and ready to return to service.

Care

Begin this process with a pan that’s been cleaned to the bare iron (like this one).

1. Wash your pan in hot soapy water to remove any surface oils. Then heat it in a 200ºF oven until completely dry.

2. Carefully apply a thin coat of flaxseed oil to the hot pan. Coat it entirely.

3. Wipe away all of the remaining oil. There will still be a very thin coat on the pan, but it should not appear oily.

4. Bake the pan, upside down, in a 500 ºF oven for 30 minutes. Then shut the oven off and let the pan cool inside.

5. Repeat this seasoning process at least three times before cooking in the pan. The seasoning will continue to build as you use the pan, becoming darker and increasingly non-stick.
