Griswold vs Wagner

At some point I will be buying either a Griswold or Wagner cast iron pan off eBay, unless I can find one at a garage sale (no luck yet after years of half heartedly looking).

I know they are both great. I am guessing this is sort of a Coke vs Pepsi thing in which some people like one and some like the other and there is no clear winner.

based on who wins this poll, that is the brand I will probably go with.

You should try flea markets. SO drags me to one in Hollis NH and I see them all the time.

I don't know anything about Wagner, so my vote is for Griswold, based on they were made where I grew up. I have one and it's very black and shiny

For the gas $ it would cost me to get to a flea market I could buy one of each pan off eBay

Like Pacanis, I have a Griswold but not a Wagner. Mine is great. I understand that Wagner is also very good, but I haven't worked with one myself.

Cookware? I thought he worked in food additives?


And I have a Lodge, so I'm not allowed to vote.

GB, If you vacation in ME, there is a strip of antique shops on rte 1 in Wells. The shop on the far end had several Griswold pans. They weren't priced so not sure how much they were but the guy had several sizes. I lucked out and got mine from a friend who was looking for someone to give her's too. She had too many can you believe it? They were from her mother.

Oh Elaine thanks for that info. We do usually go up to Ogunquit each year. this is the first year that we have not gone in probably about 5 years or so. The summer is not over yet thought so maybe we still might make it up there this year. I will definitely check that place out.
