I did not do any cleaning, this is "as found", there are no cracks, chips or build up. There are minor stains, shown in pictures (the worst is on the top of the cover). This has a smooth finish inside, not all pitted, some wear.
The bottom is slightly bowed, (slight wobble) shown in picture #10. This has the Griswold Slant Logo, NO ERIE or EPU. The roaster weighs 8.8 pounds. The lid weighs 4.9 pounds. Please enlarge and look at pictures as they are a big part of my description.
