Faithfully and fully restored by Best Made, this historical Wagner cast iron piece is now ready to return to service, on the stove or over the campfire.

Story

Active between 1891 and 1952, Wagner Manufacturing Co. once dominated the cookware market. One of the largest and most prolific cast iron cookware producers in the U.S.A., they also produced nickel-plated cookware and holloware — their cast aluminum pieces were hailed as the best in the world at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition. Wagner cast iron is so highly sought after that it even has its own collectors society.

Faithfully and fully restored by Best Made, this historical cast iron piece is now ready to return to service, on the stove or over the campfire. It comes handsomely packaged — all that’s needed to start cooking is a good seasoning, and for that, we supply written instructions with each piece.

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.
