Cast-Iron Gratin Dish – SOLD

17 Dec

It’s obviously a day for items that have been around the block a few times! This cast-iron gratin dish has taken a serious beating over the years, but on the plus side the fact that it’s still in one piece shows that it’s obviously made of strong stuff! And it’s a nice big dish – you get gratin dishes in all different sizes, but this is definitely one of the larger ones that I’ve come across. It may not be quite as pretty as it used to be, but that classic yellow and blue enamel finish, and those art deco fan handles, mean that it still has a certain charm to it!

Dimensions: 41cm long (incl. handles) x 26cm wide x 5.5cm deep

Price: R140

Vintage Cast-Iron Pot – SOLD

15 Dec

I’m a little bit suspicious of this pot! Only after I bought it did I notice a slight difference in colour between the pot and its lid – the pot is a definite solid red, whereas the lid has a hint of orange to it. The pot is also cast-iron enamel, whereas the lid is just enamel, plus the lid is marked ‘Hendlers’, and I don’t ever remember seeing cast-iron pot from Hendlers before. But that being said if I didn’t notice the difference as first, it obviously doesn’t shout out at you, plus it’s still a good quality pot, and because of my suspicions, its a bit cheaper that it would normally be.

NB: There is some wear to the inside of the pot, as well as to both the wooden and metal handles (see pics under ‘more’).

Dimensions: 17cm in diameter x 15cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R160

Pair of Le Creuset Saucepans – SOLD

I know brown’s not the most exciting of colours, but when the bottom of the saucepan reads Le Creuset you suddenly become a lot less fussy about whether the colour goes with your kitchen decor scheme! And on top of the fact that these saucepan’s are made by one of the world’s most famous names in cookware, they’re also in pretty decent nick for their years! The slightly larger saucepan (the one with the wooden handle and pouring spout) is slightly stained, but you only really notice the wear when you compare it to the other saucepan, which is particularly clean. And even though these aren’t the most attractive of Le Creuset pots, they still sell for a fair whack – the saucepan with the wooden handle can sell for as much as R1100 online (madness!!).

Dimensions: Saucepan with wooden handle – 18cm in diameter x 11cm high (with lid on); Saucepan with metal handle – 16cm in diameter x 10cm tall (with lid on)

Price: Saucepan with wooden handle – R290; Saucepan with metal handle- R270

Corning Ware Oven Dish – SOLD

1 Dec

There are a few scratches to this Corning Ware oven dish, but luckily the wear is mostly to the handles and the underside of the dish – the rest of the dish still has a great sheen to it! And this is a really nice size, not too big and not too small. It’s described on most sites as a casserole dish, but you could use it for anything really!

Dimensions: 21.5cm wide x 26cm long (incl. handles) x 14cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R260

Small Enamel Saucepans – SOLD

26 Nov

These small enamel saucepans are similar to the mixing bowls that we featured earlier in that I’d expect to see a ‘Made in Poland’ stamp on their bases, not ‘Hong Kong’. They’re almost identical to the Polish versions, although perhaps the enamel’s not quite as thick? They’re the same great colours though, with the identical design.

I’m not exactly the world’s best baker, but I’ve always loved these wee saucepans – I can so see someone making a delicious caramel sauce to dribble over a just-out-the-oven chocolate brownie!

Dimensions: Large saucepan – 8cm tall x 7cm in diameter (21.5cm long incl. handle); Medium saucepan – 7.5cm tall x 6.5cm in diameter (19cm long incl. handle); Small saucepan – 6cm tall x 5.5cm in diameter (17.5cm long incl. handle)

Price: R190 for the set

It’s been a little while since we’ve had one of these Pyrex double boilers for sale, so even though it’s not in mint condition I still jumped at the chance to buy it! There’s nothing that’s really damaged or broken, but the glass has become a bit milky from all the years of use – can you just imagine how many cakes and cups of hot chocolate this double boilers played a part in!

A great bit of kitchen paraphernalia that any baker should be happy to have!

Dimensions: 21cm tall x 17cm in diameter

Price: R265
