Default Griswold #6 Rust?

Guys,

This Griswold of mine seems to be retaining rust even though I've cleaned it many times: I've stripped it several times in self-clean cycle of oven; used vinegar to remove rust; seasoned; reseasoned, etc., and it still periodically gives me trouble.

Lately, after having used it, and cleaned it, and reseasoned, it is NOW not wanting to take seasoning in the center of the skillet. It gives an appearance of being wet, even though I've thoroughly dried it on stove.

I'm attaching a pic, hopefully you can help me?

I for one wont use the self cleaning oven method. Id use Easy Off and a garbage bag. that will strip it again for you, then season as usual.

I agree with Sean. As has been discussed here many times, the oven clean method has a risk of damaging the piece, and I don't take that risk.

If you don't have a lye bath, regular (yellow can) Easy Off, a plastic garbage bag and long "plastic" gloves definitely work on removing the crud.

Good luck.

Thanks guys,

I can't seem to post a smaller image than what I have here. My apologies.

Here's another pic. I'm wondering if stripping is really required. Can any of you tell if this is rusted?

I can't tell from the picture whether you have rust. The link didn't work.

Can you tell me, or direct me to instructions for using the Easy Off?
