Can anyone ID this flattish cast-iron frying pan?

I picked this up recently and unfortunately the bottom is too rusty to ID it. I can read "ERIE" on the bottom and nothing else. It measures 11" in diameter across the top and about 1.25" deep including the bottom. Any idea what it is? Also, the rust is pretty serious--how would I go about dealing with that? Is this still usable? Pics are here.

Cast-iron skillet: Enamelled on the outside but not on the inside?

I am looking for a very specific kind of cast-iron skillet: one where the outside is colorfully enamelled but the inside is just plain old cast iron. Do such skillets exist? [more inside]

1/4 Sheet pans that are easy to clean

I need a quarter sheet pan (~9x13 inches) for cooking (not baking) at 350-450 F, 4-5 times a week. I have used 5 different Teflon-coated pans in the last year, and the Teflon on each has started to flake off in about 4 to 8 weeks. I don't want to eat Teflon. I'm careful with utensils and cleaning materials -- I don't use anything metal. I'm open to any type of material, non-stick or not, as long as it is easy to clean. Hit me with specific recommendations. [more inside]

How can I make an aluminum aebleskiver pan work on an induction top?

We've had an induction stovetop for a few years, and it's great, except we had to replace our pots and pans. We only now realized our aluminum aebleskiver pan doesn't work. Crazy idea: fill one of our induction pans with water, and set the aebleskiver pan in that. Would that do something bad to our induction pan or make the aebleskiver's turn out weird? Is there a better solution (besides getting a cast iron aebleskiver pan)?

what size Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven?

Hi, I want to buy a Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven but because they are so expensive I can only buy one. I've waited a long time and finally I'm going to take the plunge and do it. I know I want the yellow color, and heaviness does not matter because I'm going to leave it on my stove top for display when I'm not using it, so I don't have to lug it in and out of my cupboard.

ISO large frying pan for Mr. Max Power

Looks like our Circulon 30 cm frying pan is fried, so I'm looking for a replacement that will work with high heat. Someone who will go unnamed really likes to crank the heat on most of the stuff he cooks, and it's pretty much bricked our big frying pan, so I'm looking for recommendations for something reliable and high quality to replace it, particularly for British or European available brands (US-only brands will almost definitely be too $$$ w/shipping).

Popcorn is staining my stainless pan!

Cooking popcorn with vegetable oil is discoloring my stainless steel pan. It leaves a dark yellowish stain both inside and outside around the rim. Is this a reaction with the metal? Is there a way to avoid this happening? And most importantly, is there a way to remove this discoloration? Scrubbing does nothing.

Why does my pan, heating, smell like lighter fluid?

Just started heating a newish stainless steel Alclad pan and noticed a weird smell as I was throwing onions into them (I've used it a few times before, and have never noted any strange odor). The best description I can think of for the smell is a charcoal grill, or lighter fluid. There was a whitish residue on the pan before I started cooking, which I thought was just hard water markings, but it could have been dish soap, too. Can soap smell like this when heated in a dry pan? [more inside]

Cleaning stainless steel cookware

I just got some new stainless steel cookware, and now I have some (grease?) gunk stuck on the bottom of my frying pan, along with a yellowish hue, likely from mildly overheating the bare pan while cooking. I tried soaking it for a few hours in water and soap, and scrubbing really hard with a plastic scouring pad, all to no avail. How do I get it clean? Steel-wool? Different soaking? Special cleanser? Other?
