Cast iron in Business Week
« on: May 19, 2014, 07:54:28 PM »
Well this is not exactly how the interview went, but at least I got the FORUM and WAGS mentioned.  The reporter apologized for the fact that the editor cut his original dramatically.  http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-05-19/lodge-skillets-endure-americas-last-king-of-cast-iron-finds-his-time-has-come-again#r=hp-ls

I enjoyed the story... any chance the reporter would be willing to send us the uncut original and allow WAGS to keep it here? Maybe the magazine would be OK with it if it were kept on the members side?

Hello Greg. I read it too. Its a good read. As you imply, I am sure we got the 'Readers Digest' version on the interview. I also think Stuart has a good idea about possibly getting the entire story as written by the reporter before it was sliced and diced by the editor.

Nice artile. However, I noticed one error in a picture caption:

Cast iron skillets exit the forging process and run along a conveyor belt as excess material is shaken loose

Since when is casting the same as forging?    :-?
