ID for Cast Iron Griddle
Feb 1st, 2009 at 3:36pm
 
I'm trying to ID the maker for this skillet griddle.  It's marked on the bottom in block letters "11 1/4 INCH SKILLET GRIDDLE" in the lower third of the pan.  There's a "B" just about where the handle meets the pan, and on the underside of the handle itself.  The pan is machined smooth on the cooking surface; the underside is less smooth, but still fine grained.  It's weighty - about 4-1/4 pounds.  
Any experts out there know this one?

I'm just guessing but Birimgham Stove & Range (BSR), and if it does not have Made in USA on the bottom, made prior to 1960. Without a picture it is just a guess.

Looks like an unmarked Wagner, but no "Made In USA". Did they start making these in an asian country in the later years?

Unmarked Wagner  -  actually that was my first thought too - I think I read somewhere that there was a period of time when they didn't use the Wagner Ware logo.  This has a machined cooking surface, and "feels" old.  I took about 1/4" of grease  & gunk off it. I don't think this was an import.

I think I can confirm that this is indeed an unmarked Wagner.  I sold a similar one on eBay in 2007; I was able to locate the photos.  The pan is identical, except for the Made in USA and the Wagner Ware logo.  The marking "11-1/4 INCH SKILLET GRIDDLE" is in the photo below
