I admit it, in the past I've neglected the well being of my cast iron skillet. It was always good to me but sadly I had not returned the favor.
While my skillet came from the factory nicely seasoned and ready to use, a year of inattention has taken it's toll. Gone was the once smooth cooking surface so I went to my usual reference library, Google.
This instructable shows how to strip down a pan and build it back up into something invaluable to your kitchen.
Step 1: Scrub, wash and start over
- One sick cast iron vessel
- One box of scouring/steel wool pads
- One comically over sized block of LARD
- (Optional but recommended) BACON
Once clean I thoroughly dried the pan and continued to Step 2 "Largmageddon"
