Default Re: My First Gatemarked Antique is Cracked and Needs Cleaning.

Heather, I agree with using vinegar on the rust, but if you want to season it to give it a darker look (and if it fit in your oven, I think you would be okay to heat it in the oven. However, I would use a lower temperature method. Usually, I hear my skillets up to 500, but if is a more “fragile” piece, I only heat it up to 350 and I take it up to that temperature very slowly. If you’re not going to use it, and if it is for display only, mineral oil will prevent rusting.
