It's amazing what you will find when you start clenaing out your kitchen cabinets!

I just started cleaning out the one cabinet I haven't touched for years, there are mystery items in the back.

I am SO GLAD you gave me permission to use SOAP!! LOL My mom always used soap to clean her old cast iron, and it never seemed to hurt them. I did once in a while when I used mine a lot, but tried to avoid it when I could. But this chicken fryer is old, not sure the brand, it just has an H on the kid, but no markings on the fryer itself. I tried to look it up online years ago, but couldn't find anything on it.

ANYWAY.... I'm going to tackle your method of cleaning it tomorrow. I'm thinking of all the things I could cook it in. It's really a great piece of cast iron, and I'm ashamed that I left it in the back of the cabinet for so long!!

The bigger manufacturers of cast iron cookware like Griswold, usually had some identifying maker's mark.
