A couple of years ago I was the only one to bid on a cast iron waffle iron from an E-bay seller, in London, and so won it for the opening bid of 1p. I e-mailed them and offered £5 as it was obviously worth more than 1p. but they replied that to keep to the spirit of auctions they only wanted the 1p. but thanks for the offer. It arrived and I cut an old steamer pan to fit a Go-gas stove.
It's Maple syrup time Breakfast of champions (thanks MartinK9) - Waffles and Stella
I've a No.8 cast iron as well, this time E-bay USA, it was £6 but about £25 post ! Ouch !
cheers all Danny
