It is not oven proof, looks to be purpose made to slip over that handle. I make double-thick pot holders out of that same cotton.

I have a couple of heat resistant sleeves for those handles, one of which is silicone, that I have bought at Lodge stores...have also seen them at places that sell lots of cast iron, like Gander Mountain, etc.

Thanks for the link to patterns! A great way to use up small quantities of yarn!

A friend of mine in Ohio made that to help save my hands..I only use it to take out the cast iron or move around on the stove top. It's not made to leave on while in the oven, baking.. have another one that is flexi ceramic, which works great, as it totally heat free..I've never left it on while the cast iron is in the oven..Here's a few pieces of my CI collections, which I have, cleaned, restored and seasoned. Even the wood burning stove is cast iron, recovered from a Missouri River flood, totally covered in river mud and rust. Cleaned, powered coated in heat resist paint, and reassembled with all new s/s hardware..

53FC that's an impressive cast iron collection. I like the one in the top right corner. It has the feet for outdoor coals but also a long handle haven't seen that one yet.

You mean this one? It's next to my oldest piece..) All together, I have collected over 70 some odd cast iron pieces, all cleaned via E-tank, seasoned, and ready for my use..

It's an unusual piece.

Do you suppose the handle was added after the pot was made?

I forget what those marks are called on the bottom....I have several with those. They're from the molds used, I think.

No, the handle was't added. As you can see, it also has the no. 10 on it, like the pot. Though not typical, a dutch oven with a cast handle wasn't unusual.

I did notice the 10 on the handle, as well...no corresponding small handle opposite, as you might expect.

The long handle may have been more for moving it about on a hearth, rather than lifting.

There's no bail handle for hanging....

Just an interesting looking piece,


Maggie

Maggie, you are right. Those are gate marks and it's where they filled the mold. I collect cast iron also, and love the hunt. The piece you are talking about I have heard refereed to as a "Spider". Those are very desirable pieces and very hard to find. The handle is part of the piece. I have only once found one in the wild and someone had ruined it by grinding off the feet so it could be used on a stove. Very sad.

Mmmm.....lovely.

I don't have 70 pieces, but 30 or so.

Some I use, some are on the soffits above my cabinets, some on a pot rack over my stove, others hang on the wall around my woodstove.

I love them all.


Maggie

I've stopped counting at 70..lol, however, after each is cleaned and seasoned properly. I use it, where possible..to cook up a mess of bacon..Nothing adds flavor like bacon..
I enjoy trick cooking, like using my ∆bleskiver for cooking eggs in~! And then, using a wooden skew to flip the egg over..
In this photo, I cooked up the biscuits first, then upon removal.
I took two biscuits out, and while the CI was still hot from the oven, I cooked two eggs.. Flipped each over( using a wooden skew) to cook the opposite side..Perfecto~!

We used to demonstrate cooking raw eggs in the shell on a stick over hot coals. Old Cub Scout trick.

I came across a TV program called - A Taste of History. It was a PBS show for six seasons and can be found via Amazon Prime. Here is the path for season 6. http://www.amazon.com/A-Taste-Histor.../dp/B00YI2AIDA. He uses a lot of cast iron pieces and spiders to cook in and discusses historical foods and cooking methods. I find it quite interesting!
