Best price I've seen is at Amazon. I've had mine for awhile, a friend bought from this link a couple months ago and even with the Free Super Saver Shipping it got to her within 3 or 4 days.

I have a beautifully seasoned old cast iron pan that has a crack in the edge near the handle. It is about an inch or so long going down from the top edge, has a small "L" at the end.

Can cast iron be welded or fixed? I may just be able to live with it and it may be OK.

I had just greased it up and was trying to get it back in the oven when I dropped the pan while it was hot on the edge opposite the handle, then later noticed the crack. Not sure how that happened. It was not even very hot, maybe 200 degrees or so, not 500.

Yes, Cast Iron can be both brazed and welded. Welding requires the use of special nickle rods. Brazing - you grind dowm, fill with rod (pre-heated object) and cool slowly

Hones? You're going to lose your seasoning doing this, and I'm not sure I'd want to eat anything cooked in it, plus it's going to cost. I'd buy a new pan
