Rusty Daisy Wheel

I live on the beach. Everything on my Egg that isn't ceramic rusts. Very quickly. I have just replaced the bands,mates, and nest (again).

The Daisey wheel is quite rusted as well. I am wondering if it could be cured. Similar to a cast iron skillet to help prevent rust. Has anyone ever tried this?

The old girl looks so good with all her new clothes (new gasket too), I just hate to cap her off with this rusty bonnet.

 

Thanks,

 

Robert

  • Sure. Just spray it with a little oil or Pam and put it in a warm egg. It will season right up.

    I used my grill brush to sand it down a little,  add some olive oil and start cooking.  Once done cooking i replace the ceramic cap wipe of the access oil and place inside my egg.  Works good for me.

    Replacing the hardware every few years is probably cheaper than buying one of these:  http://www.kamadojoe.com/projoe.html

  • I just had to re-do mine, left it out in the rain and it rusted pretty good. I scrubbed it with a brillow pad, rubbed it with Crisco, and tossed in the oven for a couple of hours, looks good as new

  • Thanks to all. It's oiled, It's cooked, It's clean, It's beautiful.
