Tell me about my new (old) 15' Cast Iron skillet, please? (pics)
Isn't this a cool-looking skillet? Actually, I've had it for about a year (my mom gave it to me, along with a couple others, for my new kitchen), but I've just started using it. It cooks like a dream so far, very smooth bottom and the seasoning is pretty good (and getting better). It's 15" in diameter with a stamped design in the metal on the bottom. The raised letters on the helper handle read AB&I. I'm curious how old it likely is and if you know anything about it - Google isn't loving me on this one.
I also got a nice roomy 11 3/4" Griswold with a wonderful seasoning on it and a really scabrous, crusty-sided 10-inch no-name with a fire ring on the bottom that I'd re-season in a heartbeat if it didn't cook so nicely. Good thing I have a sturdy pot rack, lol!
