Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Ahh, with a little love and seasoning, it would have caught up to your inherited pans.

Though it is always a wonderful gesture to donate to Goodwill, I think Lodge figured out that no one was currently buying their raw iron pans because of the task of seasoning. So they sprayed them with a little oil, baked it on until it was black, and upped the price for "pre-seasoned."

It's only seasoned so far as the very first use of an iron skillet. It takes several layers of burnt fat to really season it.

I find the best way to break in a new pan is pancakes. The pan is very hot, with just a little oil, for an extended period. It smokes a bit but makes wonderful crisp pancakes, and seasons itself in the process.
