re: Cleaning some cast iron


I understand why old pans are better. What I don't understand is why they are better. It's not like we forgot something about metal working between then and now. Why can't you find something like that new? There's apparently a market for it.

WE don't make them anymore for the most part. Your freindly Chinaman does. And they dilute the metal down, stretching it out further.

Cheaper metal warps a lot faster, is not as smooth on the surface, rusts faster, and it does not last as long with minimal care.

re: Cleaning some cast iron


what he said and a little about the casting process that the older folks used. Wagner bought Griswold back in the 30s or 40s i think

For some reason something was lost.

I am with you though, you would think that someone could figure out how to do it right again.
