Thanks,
Trevor

I have a stainless steel scrub pad that I sometimes use on other things, but I have never used it on my CI. For the CI I normally just use a paper towel, or a scrub brush when needed.

I like mine. Give it a try. Best for lots of stuff to clean off. For just a little, I use salt and a wet paper towel.

The little scrub pad I have works great for many things. I love it for cleaning my turkey fryer, and for stubborn stuck on food that gets on my SS cookware. I just don't want to risk damaging the carefully managed surface of my 6 or 8 month old combo cooker (that has become my go to CI).

The Lodge plastic scrapers seem to work the best for me to remove most/all left in the pan.
After that a dishcloth to clean the rest.

Thanks for all the info. Just cooked and used it on my #14 Griswold. Worked great. I too have the plastic scrapers and use those for smaller cleanups.

Thanks,

Same here. I have 2 of the brown Pampered chef scrapers that I really like. Then I also have a set of the Lodge ones. Im still warming up to them.

Yes, I too have the Pampered Chef scrapers for my chicken oven. I like those and use the a lot.

I use these PC scrapers on my board after I make my pizza dough. They make clean up so easy.

Thanks for the reply, Ed. I'm new at the collector thing, and no very little about it.

I'm new also but Cheap :-)
Bass Pro wants around $8 for the same thing........

I'm almost to Florida and it's the only place I find most of my Cast Iron, at the Flea Markets, some of the prices are high so you have to pass on a lot of it.

Amazon
Lodge Pan Scrapers. Handheld Polycarbonate Cast Iron Pan Cleaners. (2-Pack. Red/Black)

I just ordered a pack of the Scrapers from Amazon a few minutes ago.
Can you tell me if I'm wrong in my assumption, that the rougher a cast-iron skillet bottom is, the more easily food sticks to it? -or-
Does the 'seasoning' negate the roughness of the skillet bottom?

After getting the chain mail, i am having second thoughts on using it. Cant see how it wont harm the seasoning layer. I had gotten the ringe.

No chainmail for me.

Sharp metal isn't advised during cooking. I'm not taking a risk after cooking and going metal to metal. Too much work building up the seasoning to risk it.

My post cooking cleaning is 1 or 2 steps. If there are "big" pieces, then I boil water and use a Pampered Chef scrapper. The next step is a little oil and kosher salt as Doug describes. After rinsing with warm water, dry it and put a little oil (about a quarter size) and wipe it off (inside and out).

If I'm satisfied with wiping it out after cooking, I will step 1 and maybe 2. Going directly to the drop of oil.
