Professionally cleaned and well seasoned, this skillet has a beautiful cooking surface and is a very nice pan. It has a slight movement that requires about 2 business cards at 12 o'clock and 2 under the right ear to be neutralized. The skillet weighs in at 5 pounds 7 ounces. It has discoloration and utensil marks on the cooking surface that are typical of a pan of this age.
I think you'll enjoy this pan. I personally wouldn't even think of cooking a meal for my family in some of those pans. I really think some people think "restored" means they've slapped some oil on it. Every pan I sell has been restored by removing the old seasoning/gunk via electrolysis then they are well seasoned with a minimum of three rounds of seasoning.
I typically spend about 10 hours restoring each pan. I'm a perfectionist with a good work ethic and I always try my hardest to make every pan look as new as possible. If there is some discoloration left in a pan, it's because it's not coming off. You will NOT be cooking on some stranger's yucky gunky mess.
Pan is ready to use as soon as you get it home. Please see and enlarge all pictures as they are part of the description. If you want additional pictures of any area, don't hesitate to ask.I want you to have all the information you need to make a good decision for yourself.
