    I posted these a few days ago after I received them, which was lickety split from a Fleabay seller. 15 bucks + 11.75 Shipping.

    Some serious scrubbing with Barkeeper's Friend and a ss scrubbie brought them somewhat back to life, but my hands stilled smelled like rust handling them.
    So today I painted them with some naval jelly and that got them a little better, but not good enough for me. Some of the more cruddy areas remained.

    So I should have just bead blasted them in the first place.

    Now that I can live with.
    I'll take a green scrubbie to the inside, then toss them on the stove and melt a little lard in them. Also rubbing down the outside of the pans. Do that two or three times and they should be good to go :)

    Maybe not the most thrifty purchase in the world, what with shipping, but it works for me and I didn't have to leave the house ;)

    They look great. How big is the largest one? If larger than 7" that would have been a really good deal to me.

    Do you measure across the top?
    If so, there's a 6 a 7 and a 9in.
    The big and small are stamped Cold Handle, the middle one Deluxe.

    Thanks folks.
    Looking forward to using them. We'll have to give them the egg test. I've been eating a lot of fried egg sandwiches lately.

    You guys will see them over a fire one of these days :)

    I don't think I've ever used a pan so thin. They heat up incredibly quick. It didn't take long to get the first seasoning on all of them.

    Thanks.

    I used two of them on the stove last night for dinner.
    I cooked some bacon, spinach and cherry tomatoes in one and fried an egg in the other. They worked great, but man they heat up quick. You really have to have things ready by the time the butter melts. And I wasn't even on medium.
    Everything I've been reading in the Ti pan/plate thread seems to hold true for these as far as low heat is better.

    Nice pans!

    You whipped blasted them? Did it leave a textured surface?

    I like a big pan in my home kitchen. The room is nice. Helps block some grease splatter. The bigger the better

    Glass bead blasting. And yes, it left a satin finish, but the Scotchbrite smoothed it right out. My SSU egg did not stick, in spite of being cooked in brown butter ;)

    I'll give anyone fair warning though... the glass beads were extremely hard to get them all out of the hollowed handle and the seam where it attaches. Lots of tapping with a hammer to vibrate the beads loose.

    I bet the tiny texture was awesome with respect to seasoning the things.

    It may have helped draw in the lard. Like a CI pan maybe.

    Totally! I love these for eggs for that reason, I make little one-egg omelets for my kids more-or-less on demand, it takes no time at all to get one to the table.
