1940s lodge 8 chicken fryer
« on: October 08, 2018, 07:08:44 PM »
Sadly, my mother in law passed away in July. We have been cleaning the house out which was her parents house as well. A very small World War II era house. I rescued this buried in the garage and restored it yesterday. We also have a 1940s era kitchen table. I wish it were under better circumstances but I plan on being a good steward of some of these family items.
 I could be wrong on the date. Feel free to correct me if you know.

The picture doesnt do the inside justice. Its splotchy looking from the seasoning but its not pitted at all.

I think you are close on the age, lodge 3 notch fryer is a sweet piece of equipment, and now in your hands. I would consider it a family heirloom that needs to fry up some chicken

I started off planning on cooking 5 wings as a test and I ended up cooking 4 batches. 50 total. I cant help it sometimes.
