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.

It's difficult to get laughter out of me, though I appreciate humor. Jokes and things others find funny, generally get a a half-coked smile, or a grin. Andy, you made me chuckle. Thanks. I need more laughter in my life right now.

Same if they do Virginia. They would need a second pan for the Delmarva Peninsula.

Now, if they kept them to scale, you'd need mechanical assistance to lift Texas, while Rhode Island would only be good for making one slider burger.

My Colorado would be indistinguishable from Wyoming. For Alaska they could use the Aleutians for the handle. Oklahoma and Florida also have ready made handles.

That's funny. I thought they would just leave that part out.
