I just discovered that new Griswold and Wagner cast iron is still available. Both brands are owned by the American Culinary Corporation. They also have some nice looking modern cookware too.

Unfortunately an oversees company bought the rights to names. These pieces are made in China, if you inquire they will tell you different. There are several discussions on this company on the Griswold and Wagner Society web page. Lodge is the only company in the US that is currently mass producing cast iron cookware. There might be a few small mom and pop foundries that produce a few pieces but Wagner and Griswold are not making anything.

Yeah, other folks let me know I didn't dig deep enough. Apparently they are very shady. Embarassed

They also have Mag-Pro, which is the old MagnaLite Professional.

In addition to cast iron cookware, I have a lot of Magnalite Professional. Very nice cookware. I have no idea how Mag-Pro is, though.

I heard it went down hill like everything else this company touches.
