Default Re: Seasoning not sticking/burning off?

Good to know that regular use makes everything turn out alright. I was worried that everything would flake off.

I'll still probably strip them down due to the mental factor that the first attempt didn't work out too well.

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.

This pan isn't the "purtiest", but like I said, I'm not in it for looks, I'm in it to use. My morning eggs slide right out of this puppy.

Now, as too some of the discoloring. about 3 weeks ago, I cooked some Brats for the kids and me in that pan. That evening I was sick, of course not the kids. Flu hit me by 10pm.

The pan sat with the lid on for the weekend uncleaned....I know, I know, cast Iron abuse, never the less, once I recovered and washed it, it looked as the seasoning came off from the time sitting with condensation in the pan. There was a spot of rust even.

I was pissed at myself. I scoured it with steel wool till the rust was gone and just kept using it. Surprisingly, nothing stuck to it. It was like it was seasoned.

Go figure.

Anything I buy, I strip and season before I use 'em. It's just not knowing what's been in them before I use 'em that get's to me.

believe me, I've gotten some beautifully old crusty seasoned for decades pans that I didn't want to strip.....but dang it, I wanted to use them!! So i had to strip and start fresh.

This guy I didn't bother, well, because I know what I've had in it. Like I said in the earlier post, mine are all users. I pray my children will continue using them through there lifetimes. Maybe someone in the year 2115 will be re-stripping my pans to use for themselves, wouldn't that be a hoot!
