Holcroft Cast Iron Grilling Pan


Recommended Posts

I've have been lugging around this beautiful big pan for a whole lot of years, it was my mother's and I suspect her mother's before her. It appears that the Holcroft line is from Great Britain as I can find a bunch of pieces in the National Trust collection but I'm not seeing a lot in North America. I'm seeing similarly shaped pans but without the ridges that are called boiling pans. And there is a lid with this one - so perhaps it is a boiling pan as well. It's about 20 inches side to side.

 

It would benefit from a good seasoning.

 

I'd like to see it go to a good home where someone would restore it to it's former glory and then get some use out of it. 

 

Shipping is going to be rather expensive from Canada - I suspect around $70 to most locations in the US.

 

Anyone want to take it off my hands for the cost of shipping and the promise they'll document the seasoning and use on eG? I would recommend the Sherry Canter method described on this eG thread.

Does the Benz come with it?

That's funny - was looking at the pics as I was posting and realized I should have taken the pics outside the car! The shipping would be atrocious.

Kerry, I'll take it! I need a good grill pan! It will be treated lovingly, if not always carefully, but it'll be loved and used.

From where would you suggest finding a cast iron pan with grill ridges?

 

A little late to the party here...but:

 

I always see a few CI grilling pans of various makes at the thrift stores / resale stores I frequent. Usually well under $10, any most times never used.

 

Recent finds in CI have also been the Weber CI skillet that works with the kettle grill, accessory grate, and a lovely big oyster CI pan. Again, both never used, and the oyster pan still had the label on it.

I've been hearing good things lately, about both Staub's and Le Crueset's grill pans.

 

@kayb - so, how great is that grill pan you got from @Kerry Beal?

 

Ummm...I think it'll be wonderful when I get around to cooking it clean and reseasoning it. 

 

Timeliness has never been one of my virtues.

And that is why it had to find a new home - I've lost my roundtuit!
