Default Re: Smoothing New Iron

Depending on how high you go with the grit of paper, you may find the pan is too smooth for seasoning to stick as well as it should. After sanding pour some vinegar in the pan and it will gently etch the surface over a few hours to give you a subtly porous surface like those found on ancient well used cast iron. And you may find that the drill is slower than you imagined. Good luck!
