Is there a reason why they were made of heavy thick cast iron?
Designed to retain the heat better or?

Asking because I just scored an original IK #3 off Craigs and want to get familiar and see if its all that.

The included original pottery lid although cracked is still useable, but I bought a SS dog dish from Walmart and will attempt to fabricate my own cheap daisy wheel, lol.

Replies welcome! Thx

Probably because they were cheap to mass produce and won't break as easy.

thanks.
can anyone suggest a makeshift heat deflector?
Don't want to spend the $ for one yet if I can use what is around the house.
Thinking screen splatter shield inches above lump topped with a water filled pie pan for juices?
Or maybe expanded metal cut to fit topped with foil?

A pizza stone will work, or even a pizza pan that can double as a drip pan. You don't want to get nuclear temps in the older komados .
