Griswold Manufacturing Vintage Warranty Letter response from January 5th 1925
Bailed Griswold griddles were hung directly over coals, on a oven rack, directly over a stove top or would sit over coals in a grill or smoker.
Mr. Frank Doyle
Port Leyden, N. Y.
We were very sorry to learn from your letter of December 30th that a #16 Bailed Griddle of our manufacture cracked while in use. Every product bearing Griswold trade mark is guaranteed to give satisfactory service to its user and we thank you for following out out policy in making replacement, free of charge, to your customer.
We are sending to you, by express prepaid, a new #16 Bailed Griddle which will be covered by our no charge invoice. When it is received we ask that you completely destroy the cracked griddle you have on hand as the transportation charges to our factory would amount to more than the scrap metal the griddle contains.
Very truly yours,
The Griswold MFG. CO.
