A skillet found in my Mother's kitchen, to me it's to be preserved because I know it's history. Flea market find, "Look how well seasoned it is, it will be a great cooker!! $40" Psshhh... I don't know what's been in there.. Could have been used as a chamber pot for all I know. I'm stripping it. Inside & outside.

There is not one piece of cast iron that comes into my hands that does not end up in my lye tank in the first 12 hours home. It does not matter how well seasoned it is.

Try this for size. So you purchase a great looking griddle that is seasoned and so smooth. So you go cook a meal of grass feed beef steaks for the family, then start getting these funny faces from members of the family. Why does this steak taste like fish? Because the last owner only used it to fry his fish on it for the last 20 years. Eat up, or strip it your call.
