New (to me) Cast Iron!

I'm so excited! I was able to barter some stuff I haven't used in years for some cast iron pans. I traded a tv tray set for a no name 10" skillet/dutch oven combo. Then I traded the same guy a mini freezer for a 15" Lodge skillet and 2 sleeping bags! I've cleaned them all up and re-seasoned them. The 15" skillet (big baby) I have found takes 2 burners on the ceramic cooktop to heat it though. I used big baby to cook a 5.5 lb stuffed pork roast, and it just barely fit in that huge skillet! Can't wait to make a chicken or something in the dutch oven.

Anyone know how to tell the age of the 15" skillet? On the underside it says 14SK. I notice that there are Lodge 15" skillets on Amazon that are labelled 14SK3.

Congrats on the new CI, you'll love it especially once you learn how to use it to its full advantages.

hope you've cleaned & seasoned the sleeping bags too!
don't wash the cast iron,just wipe it out after use.i've got a set of three victors,had them for years & they are now as non stick as a...well...non stick pan!
great for starting grub on the hob & finishing in the oven but watch those handles!

I've had a 10" skillet for a few years. But maybe I am missing something. Tips?

I will try that. I just thought that somewhere someone might have created a cast iron identification guide or something.
