On polished cast iron, one of my good friends decided to polish a cast iron skillet to make it easier to clean (He's a little OCD).  So he went at it with an electric drill and various brushes then sanding.  Both of us were pretty impressed with the result.  Cooked well and very easy to clean.  I've got a no name skillet I'm going to do the same to.  My Griswolds and Wagners will remain traditional cast iron.

Mom had a huge cauldron (we called it the witches pot).  We cooked burgoo when we lived up north.  The men wood stay up all night keeping the fire going (there might have been alcohol involved).  The women would stay up in the farm house wrangling the little ones with the comforts of home.  Good memories.  I sure wish I had that witches pot now.


Everything you found is really out of my price range, but you never know what will pop up at a estate sale or garage sale.  Here's hoping.

I kinda like the scabbards. The knives look pretty slick resting in them.

Food and Cooking / American made cast iron with...... ahem........ a price.

I was looking at a magazine about luxury lifestyles in the southern States and saw an ad for cast iron fry pans. The company is Butter Pat Industries.  I like quality stuff so I went to the websites.  They sure look like high quality and cost like it too.  They have two companies I think, one makes the frying pans and the other makes cauldrons supported by a tripod.  The cauldrons come in different sizes too.

The fry pans start at $145 for a 6" cooking surface and go to $395 for a 12" cooking surface.  They are polished and made in the USA.

The other company is Cowboy Cauldron Co. and they make tripod supported Cauldrons.  Big ones.  Expensive too, from $1695 to the middle $3500 with all the accessories.  They are basically suspended fire pits with a grill.  The large one is 42" across and weighs in at 220 pounds with the tripod adding another 84 pounds. 

The cauldrons are interesting and I am now really sorry I passed on a large and very old iron cauldron at a recent estate auction.  It sold for $65.00.
