This appears to be the refined grapeseed oil being discussed for the first seasoning as well as subsequent?
I wouldn't spend more for organic imported. That also doesn't appear to be the refined version, which has a high smoke point. The supermarket stuff works fine, just look for the word refined. Some brands also state the smoke point.

Groovy. I just cancelled it off Amazon, and I'll go to the store.

I don't use Crisco for some of the reasons mentioned here, so looking for a high smoke natural oil.

Cold press refined organic flaxseed oil for initial season up to maybe six coats of season
about 13 bucks 8 ounces it works great its got a high flash smoke Point. you have to buy it and organic food store one of those fancy stores and its got a expiration date on it so you should stored in your frigerator after you open it too the good thing you can put it in your oatmeal and other food is very good for you
It will flake if you use your pan has a high hot oil and grease level in them such as bacon.
I bake my bacon ( Never fry bake it again)

I got my season recipes process from Sheryl Canters blog off Google, pretty intense but its very good especially if you bake a lot with your cast iron

for maintenance I use High grade olive oil refined coconut oil whatever I really have on hand or the oil I just cooked with in that particular paN

Note I don't deep fry so I couldn't say what works for frying.

on Facebook I hear this new product of someone's developed called crisbee and have heard very good things about it but I've never tried it personally

Great threads and posts.

Funny to see this thread still going.

I'd done the flax seed thing and gave up on it shortly thereafter. I've been using Crisco, but I just got some beeswax and made a "puck" tonight. I wasn't sure of the ratio to use, so I tried 1:4 wax:Crisco. Hopefully I'll get a chance to give it a shot tomorrow night.

I regularly bring up the conversation of Beekeeping when talking to my Mother on the phone. She's an avid gardener, and this gives me another reason she should keep bees. So I can have some wax.

I'm gonna go with the oil / beeswaxwax combo, but use grapeseed oil instead. Make a paste.

I do this now with Tung / Citrus oil, mixed with beeswax and a little carnauba wax for wood countertops, butcher block, cutting boards, etc.
