    It might be your spatula too. Have been making eggs in my cast iron for years and use a "fish" spatula to slide underneath the egg. You can also take a standard spatula to the stones and put a dullish edge on it. Key thing is to create something that slides underneath whatever you are cooking with ease. There can be a little "sticktion" with cast iron and carbon steel pans even if seasoned they will likely not be as slippery as a non-stick pan. If that fails you should send me your pan.

    After my Wagner cracked early last year after many years of serviceI replaced it with a Japanese Iwachu skillet (they only make one size). Even though the surface is not glassy like my Wagner or Griswold there is very little sticking and the pan is a true joy. Wish they made a bigger version though.

    Just bought a Griswold #10 Large logo! I purchased it from Doris at Griswoldcookware.com. Anything I should be mindful of once it arrives?

    I found out a while ago that among the "assets" my wife's family divvied up after her grandma passed away a few years ago was an entire, lovingly-maintained set of Griswolds dating to the '30s (large-logo blocks?). My wife, who burns water, passed on them. Doh.

    They have some beautiful stuff on their website, but didn't you find them a little pricey?

    I'm getting a #10 large logo shipped for 100 usd. Do you think that's too much? I could have gone the eBay route, but I'm concerned about quality. I figured going through their store would ensure that I received a quality piece. Although now you're making me second guess myself.

    Specialty store like theirs do a tremendous ammount of footwork insureing the buyer gets what they pay for. Sometimes rare verieties can seem very expensive but you are paying for a service of identification and classifacation. How much do you want an item and how much time do you want t spend looking for it. It's all subjective.

    Personally I like the hunt myself, but at times I want something very focused in a short period of time and I will pay for a specialist to cut my search time to nothing

    So it comes down to a point of needs. Is that pan exactly what you want? Is the condition exactly what you need for your collection? if they are than I'd say your getting what you paid for and all is good

    For something I really need and want in a condition I need I will consider paying more than market value to aquire it, you just have to balance out what your wants, needs, and time, are worth to you

    Definitely didn't mean it like that! I went the ebay route and picked up a #8 & #10 (they'll be here by the end of the week). I think the advantage of your way is that you're guaranteed a good pan. If the price is worth it to you, then it's a win. I went the ebay route because it's more of a "what the heck, why not?" purchase. Part of the fun is trying to see if I can pick something up for $20 & $30, respectively.
