I have a skillet that was left to me by my grandmother it is a Wagner ware sidney -0- with a fancy 2 on it at the bottom. It measures 10" long from end of skillet to end of handle and 6" dia. or 6 1/2" dia.with spouts. She always used it to my cornbread for me all my life when I visited even as a growen woman. She always done things like this to make us feel special. I want to do this for my grandchildren but I'm afraid it will hurt the skillet. Could you please tell me what it is worth? Thank You.

I would think with those kind of sentimental memories attached to it, it would be priceless!

Although"collectible" these skillets are not a big $$ item.Wagners of this size sell for 10-20$ at E-bay and shops commonly,depending on condition,and are reasonably common.Some brands would be much rarer and more valuable.Use it and enjoy it,it's virtually indestructible and maybe pickup some more for each grandkid.

If it is the one I think, then it is not a 'cheapy'...

Depends on Logo for price...

I thought JimWTx covered it pretty well...

Current prices can be found on eBay, and if it were mine, I would re-season it, use it, and never look back...

If it was in bad shape, I could help, but if it is in good shape...Use it...You'll never 'wear' it out, and you can never find one in a store that will be of the same quality...

You are right, those are collectible items to some people, but if I was you, I wouldn't worry about it. The best way to appreciate an heirloom like that skillet is to use it for the purpose for which it was intended. Then your children and grandchildren will have fond memories of that skillet also.

Your not gonna hurt that cast iron skillet by making cornbread with it. Just keep it clean and put a light coat of cooking oil in it when not in use. You can probably find a price for that kind of skillet on E-bay.
