I would post pics, but the forum says I don't have permission?! What's up with that, Dave? I got som hot pics of RR for ya if I get permission wink winkvg:
No sh&T!? Pre 1922? That's cool. I also discovered that Wagner ware and Wagner were two different entities, with Wagner being the more sought after. But from what I can see, this is high quality stuff with a smooooooth surface!
I don't think cracking is an issue if you allow it to cool naturally. If you do it in an oven, set it on a timer and let it cool overnight. If you pull it out of the hot oven that might be too quick, but if the oven and the pan both cool slowly together it's not a problem.No sh&T!? Pre 1922? That's cool.

I've heard that you shouldn't season at ultra high heat because as it cools thermal shock will crack it.
I'm just going to use Crisco and medium heat.
Doh!! Yeah I've 'forgotten' how hot some things are when I am in a rush. I got burns all over my hands from 20 years in the pro kitchens...Just don't forget to use an oven mitt to grab the lid handle after you've pulled it out of the oven!
I had one of those little gizmos that you impaled four potatoes on for baking. I'd use a oven mitt to grab the lifting ring to pull it out of the oven with my right hand & then transfer the oven mitt to my left hand to pull the hot potatoes off and grabbed :eek2: the lifting ring to hold the gizmo with my right hand.... After far too many burnt fingers I finally threw the damn thing away.
Been there, done that, have the T-shirt and the matching bandage from picking up a hot pan without a side towelThat's how I know when I'm too tired at work! When I grab a hotel pan full of food, and start walking around, quickly realizing that it is burning the hell out of my hands because I just took it out of the oven, turned around to close the oven, and picked it up......it's time to let someone else mop, go home, and sleep.
