Equipment: Small Cast Iron Skillet

A 1950's era small cast iron skillet measuring 8 1/8 inches across the top

Description and Uses
This skillet was my grandmother's, and as near as I can tell is from the 1950's. It is well-seasoned, and back in those days they created them a tad thinner and smoother than they do today.

This skillet is perfect for frying one or two eggs, toasting walnuts or pine nuts in the oven, cooking a grilled cheese sandwich, or making a single quesadilla.

This "No. 5" skillet measures 8 1/8 inches
The outside top diameter measurement given below is typically how cast iron skillets are listed by their manufacturers. This one is also listed as a "No. 5" on the bottom. It is equivalent to a Lodge "L5SK3" skillet.

Outside Top Diameter: 8 1/8 inches
Inside Bottom Diameter: 6 inches
Depth: 1 1/5 inches

Care and Maintenance
Follow standard cast iron care instructions for this skillet.
