Re: Flaxseed Oil

Oh, yeah, the magic number was six when I tried it. Are you going to use it or hang it?

Re: Flaxseed Oil

How many layers do you have now? Are you going to use them or are they just for display? After 2-3 layers I'd just cook with them, they'll blacken up with usage...then flake. LOL

Why 3's and Not 4's?

The other thread on 4's got me thinking as to why 3's and not 4's? Why would you need that smaller size in the kitchen? Did stores sell sets of CI that didn't include 4's or 7's skillets? Is there...

Chicken Fryers???

Was it intended that a chicken fryer was to be used as a deep fat fryer or as a high walled skillet so grease wouldn't splatter all over the stove?

Re: Deep Skillets, What’s Your Opinion on Using Them

Yup, I would like to find a good one. Because, cooking for one, a DO is too big.

Re: Bacon Grease???

Sorry, but unless you've found a source for no sugar bacon (some meat markets will make it for you), what you are doing is adding a layer of caramelized sugar and oil. Used lard to season.

Re: Stovetop Seasoning?

Oh, OK, guess I misunderstood the context when people mentioned doing this.

Stovetop Seasoning?

A few here have mentioned that they apply a coat of oil to the skillet then heat it until it smokes. A question: how long do you keep the heat on the skillet after it starts to smoke?

thanks

Re: Mouse

Why would a person trust where and how a piece was used or stored, I strip, lead test, and re-season every piece of CI I buy.

Saw the above in a thrift store this A.M. Marked made in USA. It's the size that a piece of bread would just fit on the surface. Rough surface. Great for grilled cheese. Never seen or heard of this,...

Re: Quality Hierarchy by Brand

For cooking I'm starting to like my BSR's better than my Griswolds, BSR's seems to hold the heat better.

Re: New to Buying Had Some Questions

Facebook also has a site to buy and sell CI. Can't think of the name just now, maybe Iron man or something like that. Prices seem OK, but also have to consider shipping cost.

Seasoning Over Old Seasoning

I've been using a skillet for over a year and its not getting to the non-stick stage. I'm wondering if I can season over the old seasoning, or it better to clean the old seasoning off and start a-new?
