Griswold steak platter

This is a Griswold cast iron steak platter.

It was sold from the 1930's to the 1950's, to commercial organizations, not to the general public.

The stated measurement is 8 x 4 inches. I don't know if that means the entire platter, or just the surface area minus the rim.

4 inches seems very small, though, considering a standard fajita pan is 10 x 7.

It was meant for serving... steak! Also fish and chops. It keeps the food hot at the table.

There's no reason why you can't cook on it as well.

These steak platters are hard to find, but Lodge sells a wide variety of cast iron serving platters.

In addition, Lodge has a brand new similar product called the tableware oval serving dish.


  1. I want one! I want one!
    (Actually, I want His and Hers.)

  2. LOL that's why I ended up getting 2 10 inch griddles

  3. btw, I like your new hyperlinks. They work great and really help with site navigation. Next thing you're going to need is an index LOLOL.

  4. You mean, key words for people to look up? I finally put a search feature which works most of the time but sometimes is buggy.

    I got so many articles now, that it's gonna take me a LONG time to add all the hyperlinks... so far I just add them as they come to mind...

  5. Saw one got for $1700.00 on Ebite last year, sure was a nice looking piece but not at 4 digits :p

  6. I have an original Griswold Steak Platter 849 if anyone is interested?
