Decoding Cast Iron Numbers and Lettering: See What The Numbers Actually Mean
How many times have you used your cast iron pots and pans and wondered what the heck the letters and numbers mean. I know I have. I even turned to a cast iron group on Facebook to seek answers.
There’s no need to join any groups or post and ask a million questions, I found a cool website that listed all of the common and not so common letterings and numbers so you can print it off for reference.
If you are looking for a decent set of cast iron I would highly recommend this set: Lodge 5-Piece Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Cookware Set. You get 10.5-inch round griddle, 8-inch skillet, 10.25-inch skillet, 5-Qt. Dutch oven and 10.25-inch iron cover and is Pre-Seasoned and ready-to-use.
So the next time you visit an antique shop you will know how old the pan is and what is was made specifically for. This truly is lost information that not a lot of us know.
