The Great American Waffle Iron is made for the patriot, the family that enjoys quality food, the cook, the baker, the traditionalist, the historian, the story teller. In stock and shipping.
Our cast iron products are warranted, period. If there is ever a defect in craftsmanship, or material failure from normal wear and tear, we will opt to replace it with like kind and quality or refund the purchase price to the original owner or one traced descendant. This warranty does require proper use and care. The owner will pay return shipping. Appalachian Cast Iron will be responsible for shipping back to customer. Before shipping to Appalachian Cast Iron, the customer must contact us and get an RGA (return goods authorization.)
Another great idea for long term storage is to vacuum bag your clean and dry cast iron pieces. If there is no moisture or Oxygen, corrosion will not take place.
* Note: Tony has a background in appliance repair and does not recommend the use of a heated self-cleaning mode due to the potential for damaging the relays on the oven power control board. But, if you take that risk anyway, by following our protocol, you will do no harm to your Appalachian Cast Iron products. The manufacturers recognize the alarming potential for an oven to be damaged during self-cleaning, so several of them now offer “Steam Cleaning.” By pouring a cup of water into a recess in the oven floor and initiating a controlled heating cycle, the oven steams up the interior of the oven, which loosens grime. It is very effective. DO NOT PUT YOUR Appalachian Cast Iron products in a steam clean cycle.

Our leather handle cover is produced in house and is a great helper when using your waffle iron or pulling your Jeweled Skillet from the oven. We produce these in house and are sure you will love them. (Yes, you can use them on other brands of cookware, too. We won't tell.) The design is a fold over seam design and is very ergonomic. There is stitching down one side and the bottom. The other side remains open so that the piece is semi-open and easier to use. We use the thickest leather we could source and still execute the fold. Product testers have been amazed at its resistance to heat. The 4.5 inch version works great with the waffle maker. It is useful with the skillet as well. The 5.5 inch handle cover is recommended if you have only purchased the skillet, it provides a fuller grip.
Our paring knife is made by Dexter Russel, one of the last main line producers of cutlery in the USA. Tony personally has a couple of their large cleavers for BBQ duty, and several spatulas, but the paring knife gets used multiple time a day.
