Sweden is, after all, a state. It's called Minnesota!

Most will probably not cook with them but will hang for display.

The picture shows only the troll side of Michigan. Everyone forgets about the bes part of the state, up hear in Yooper Country. If they are going to show Michigan, they hae to have the U.P. shaped pan as part of a Michigan set.

And, just to throw my coin in the pot, sure, it's an extravagande; but one that I would love to have hanging in my kitchen.

State-shaped cast-iron pans

I understand your dilema and agree with you, Chief. The UP is beautiful. Both North Dakota and Iowa pans would be rather boring, very few islands, and both rather rectangular-ish.

Oh, for crying out loud. It's a stylized design, it's not supposed to be a map.
