Re: Wagner Waffle Iron Restoration

Your handles look to be in great shape. Honestly, I unscrewed mine from the paddles and just did what I had to. They went back on nice and tight after I was all done, easy peasy. Mine looked to be...

Re: Seasoning not sticking/burning off?

Just thought I'd drop a picture. You can see the darker edge around the rim. That was where the flax didn't burn off. The lighter inside is where it all came off.

Re: Used oil for seasoning?

Frankly, since I have my jar of bacon fat renderings next to the stove, that's what I use to season with now. Small dab on a clean paper towel, wipe down and season away!
