Single Arm Griddle ca: 1750-1800


A wonderful example of an early cast iron hanging baking iron. In Colonial America where often there was only a green wood lugpole from which to suspend cooking pots and pans and a fierce open fire to cook on hanging griddles where in far more widespread use than in England. They were also used when cooking in the fireplace.The griddle was used for broiling steaks and fish as well as for making waffles and batter base cookies and biscuits. This griddle was used extensively in the open fire. See photo of griddle bottom. Reference: Iron in the Fire by Rachael Feild p.123 Dimensions: 151/4″H 12″Diameter (ALKU)
