The Unsolved Mystery of the World’s Largest Cast Iron Skillet

We tripped across this massive unmarked skillet while hunting for vintage cast iron the other day and it “accidentally” ended up in the ever growing FINEX collection.

It is well over 20 inches in diameter and 3 inches deep and weighs in at a ridiculously heavy 36 pounds and 3 ounces. The casting quality is rough and it has a heat ring and a gate mark on the bottom of the pan. Besides being the largest cast iron skillet we’ve ever seen, can you even imagine the stories this skillet could tell? Did it keep a logging camp fed on cold mountain mornings? Did soldiers gather around this in the mess tent?

One thing is for sure and that is that come Sunday morning we are going to make the mother of all blueberry pancakes in this beauty.
