It belonged to my grandparents, but was always sticky, and who wants sticky waffles??
My mother-in-law gave me some old iron skillets when we got married and showed me how to season them. So I thought I'd try a hand at restoring this 1910 Wagner Waffle Skillet--a sort of blog/Pinterest experiment!
First, I scrubbed the rust off, using steel wool. The next part of the seasoning involves rubbing a thin layer of vegetable oil on the surface and heating it. This restores a nice patina to the iron.
Next: the test! Time to mix up the batter.
I used a healthy application of olive oil spray and heated pretty hot before pouring in the batter.
Flip it over after a few minutes.
Confession: the first one stuck just a little. This is the second try!
I can hear my husband giving a positive verdict: "This is really yummy, honey!"
That's it. It's a 1910 success, over a 100 years later!
Do you have a love for vintage?
Is there an item you just couldn't let your mother throw out?
