I have been wanting a cast iron gem iron for a long time. Finally I found a reasonably priced one on Trade Me (the better older ones are much sought after), so snapped it up.

It was slightly rusty - needed a good clean and oil, but is now pretty much good as new.

I made my first batch of ginger gems the other day - they were warm and soft and delicious, but not as flavoursome as I would like. Next time I'm going to add little pieces of crystallised ginger I think.
