Re: wax removal ?

Rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol does not do much to organic (waxes, oils). You would have better luck with denatured alcohol probably.

Re: grinding and seasoning

For now I am well pleased with the results I've finally achieved. The lodge pan took about an hour to smooth out. Even then, there are some pits. The finex took a few seconds to lightly 'adjust'.

Re: grinding and seasoning

Strong solvent like acetone or lacquer thinner with a small brass or steel brush.


Preheat a little, wipe with crisco, and upside down on the gas bbq grill for an hour. That finex... darn stuff...

Re: grinding and seasoning

The 10" skillet doesn't see enough use to develop a normal coating. I tried multiple times to season it, either directly, or through use.

After failing... I could not effectively clean it to retry...

Re: Finex CI

Not sure about brass, but something that will take the heat w/o rusting or galvanic corrosion. Maybe stainless.

Re: grinding and seasoning

This is a 20 year old lodge pan, likely a wedding gift.

Sorry for the links... can't get images to embed right now.

Re: So I am bummed out

We always used nickel rods to weld cast iron. I'd like to see a pan that had the crack ground, welded, and resurfaced.

Re: Finex CI

I too bought direct from the factory, an 8" with lid.

The finish on their stuff was excellent. The seasoning.... so-so.

I preheated to maybe 200f, smeared w/ crisco, and finished upside down in the gas bbq grill for 1 hour @ 450f.
