(Whitfield and Behe, don't even think about it. I didn't say Cooks' wear)!
I am wondering about the cookware used on Titanic. Did they use any Cast iron pots, pans, or skillets, and if so, does anyone know the company it was purchased from? I promise I wont use it on my husband if I find one.

NO ONE HUH?? OK then....are there any books out there that are still in print that may give me information? I have looked, but the books I have come across do not specialize in dishes and cookware. Maybe I should have enlisted Behe and Whitfields' help after all!! :) Colleen

Colleen,

I wish I could help. I know next to nothing about cookwear, 1912 or present day. If it can't go in the microwave, it's not for me!

Cookwearless in Texas,

Randy

PS) Surely Sir Geoffrey has dilly-dallied in the kitchen with pots and pans cooking up little lovely cakes and God knows what else.

Colleen:
There's a few pictures and a bit of info in "Last Dinner on the Titanic." There's also a hazy picture in "Titanic Voices" of a kitchen crew at work that shows some cookware.

Great to see your name on the board again Mike Herbold! Thank you both for a lead. It is more than I had! I could sware that I saw a photo of the bottom of what appeared to be a pan that was recovered, but can not find it again.

Hi, Colleen!

When it comes to the subject of food, Mike Herbold is your man. :)

(Nice to see you, Mike! Will you be putting down roots any time soon?)

All my best,

George

Alas, no roots, George, but do plan on almost reaching my Titanic goal of shaking your hand this year. Looking forward to sharing a meal or two with you and Pat.
Warm Regards,
Mike

Hi, Mike!

Same here! It'll be a great treat for me to finally be able to meet you in person. (The first round of Mountain Dews will be on me.) :)

All my best,

George

Ahh -- a kindred spirit.
