    Hey Broc,

    I have never had to use it yet but the author of this site seems to know what he is doing. Good luck.


  • Cotton towel with cooking oil on it and wipe it down.
    I clean my cast iron after a cook with newspaper. Very seldom does water to clean ever touch my cast iron.

    David (panman) is good about answering emails too. Very prompt and informative the couple of times I have written.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Never done it but a cousin that I think knows what he's talking about says build an outdoor fire and shove a rusty cast iron skillet right into it. Says it's the best thing to do to recover a rusty skillet.

  • Cast Iron skillets can warp if you put it right in to a fire. Butthe fire won't get rid of rust anyway you need to wirebrush it and reseason it.
