Cast Iron 101: How to Use, Clean and Season a Cast Iron Skillet

Did you know that new cast iron pots and pans are simply cast which means if you look at them through a microscope you will see more of a textured finish.

Older cast iron pans were almost always machine polished to a glass like surface. For that reason I would highly recommend seeking out older pans from family members who do not use them or check out the antique stores, I have seen them for as low as 5 bucks.
