I have and adore my cast iron.  Probably 8 pieces from 4" to a huge 
14-16" deep dish that I often use for pizza (among other 
things).  One of my most loved items is an ancient (1875 is the 
casting mark) waffle iron that we got from my wife's 
grandfather.  Horrid condition when we got it.  Took months to get it 
clean and usable but we did and now it is like nothing else.  Don't 
give up on your ePay item if it does not work right off.

I have always wanted to build a cast iron drum roaster....just not 
sure how to go about it aside from casting my own drum......
