Vintage Griswold Erie PA Mini 0 Size Skillet Model 562

Vintage Griswold Mini 0 Size Skillet Model 562

This is a beautifully preserved example of the smallest skillet made by the most renowned U.S. maker of cast iron cookware, the Griswold Co. of Erie, PA. It is the elusive tiny pan numbered 0.

The tiny pan is NOT a crudely made fake or an "ash tray" novelty, but a perfectly cast pan, fully seasoned, with the famous Griswold thin walls and a baby-butt-smooth cooking service. When you handle it, it is, in its way, delicate and fine, a tribute to the makers.

The pan is marked with familiar cross within a circle on the bottom, with the boldface name of "Griswold." Around the bottom raised heat ring (for coal and wood stove openings) are the words "Cast Iron Skillet, "Erie Pa, U.S.A," and Model "562." It was produced from 1920 to 1930.

We have seen only a few of these in collections, and even fewer in this remarkable condition. Some call it "the perfect single egg pan." They are not wrong.
