A blog mostly about caring for and cooking with cast iron cookware.
That is a beautiful skillet. If I am not intruding, how much would that be worth. Of course it is priceless if you have it. Great Site!
Hey Chilebrown - according to "The Book of Griswold & Wagner" 4th edition, a Wapak #9 Indian Head Medallion skillet in excellent condition is worth 100 dollars.The book is a few years old so I wouldn't be surprised to see these going for over 125 bones.The #4 version of this skillet is one of the most faked (with laughable casting) skillets out there as an original can command over 800 dollars.
I have no humor so I won't even try. But I'll tell you what I would do with the skillet. I would make an amazing Apple Pancake Recipe. I'd love to share it with you and your cast iron skillet enthusiasts.4 T Butter1/4 c Brown Sugar1 large Apple, cored & sliced 1/8"5 large Eggs1 c Flour1 c Milk1/2 t ground CinnamonPinch of SaltConfectioners sugarPreheat oven to 400. In a 10" skillet, melt butter & 3 T brown sugar. Add apples, and cook 5 minutes, stir occasionally. In med bowl, whisk eggs, flour, milk, cinnamon, salt, & remaining sugar. Pour batter slowly over cooked apple mixture. Transfer to oven til golden brown, set in center, and puffed around edges, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve hot.
We just found one at a yard sale for $5, out here in Oregon. Thanks for the information.Linda
lpellissier, ~ Ouch! 5 bucks won't even buy a decent burrito.Treat it right, that kind of iron will never be made again.
Dear sir i have imported a 14!! wapak skillet to Australia for camping /fishing i wanted a top quality USA product.IT was rusty a bit of a gamble but after the electrolysis bath and glass bead blaster and seasoningit came up trumps.it cooks steak bacon fish better than any modern skillet no burning more control.regards robert
Robert - You are dedicated and a 14 is a monster. Enjoy it!
