Picture of Reseason your cast iron skillet

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

OK, so your parts list will be small for this Instructable:
  • One sick cast iron vessel
  • One box of scouring/steel wool pads
  • One comically over sized block of LARD
  • (Optional but recommended) BACON
I started off by scrubbing all the old gunk off my pan under running water. Since the instructions I found online suggested that you should season both the inside and outside of the skillet I scrubbed both surfaces clean with steel wool.

Once clean I thoroughly dried the pan and continued to Step 2 "Largmageddon"
