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.

All you need is a little elbow grease, some patience and a few dollars and you can have an old rusty pan looking brand new and cook from it the same day! Don’t throw out your rusty old pans! Check out how to do this and maintain your cast iron for years to come:
