one of the things I love about cast iron is it works so well on inductive stoves.

Deglaze.
Wash.

Oil.
Wipe.
Store.
I also use a thin stainless steel turner on my cast iron. Works dreamy to knock down the big chunks and has smoothed out the cooking surface over the last few years. I have one 16" pan that gets stored on my stove.

I love mine. Use it all the time. Don't overthink it.
Use. After dinner, when its cooled, hot water and a scrubbie till clean. No soap. Little bit of oil in it (whatever is handy, usually veg oil), wipe it around with a paper towel. Flip it over, top rack of the oven till next time. It goes through the heat cycles of the oven. If I'm using the oven super hot, 450+ or broiler, I'll pull it out if I think about it.
Its as non-stick as I can ever ask. Works great for me.

My brother and I go fishing in the Missouri Ozarks once or twice a year. Our kitchen box has several cast iron pans, as a rule we never cook with anything else.

Goes back to when we were kids. Dad always fried Trout and everything else in the old cast pan. I wish I still had it.

I use my 12" CI for just about any food that isn't grilled or baked. Great stuff, great seasoning, sometimes two or three meals a day on the weekends. Get one if you don't have one.

I'm thinking of refinishing (sanding?) my small cast iron skillets to better flip eggs. The surface seems far too rough, even though the coating is pretty good, not great. Has anyone done this, and how?

You can grill in a cast iron pan, makes nice grill marks on a steak that little one. A little deglazing with your beverage of choice, tea included et voila!



No markings on it but 2 B. For some reasons of my own, I am pretty sure it predates the foreign invasion of cast iron cookware. 2 B or not 2 B.....

I got good results with a Wagner Skillet Grill, but figured out quickly a range hood is REQUIRED to use one inside & gave it up. It filled the place with smoke.

I don't have a range hood and a few too many smoke detectors.Still cook sausages/vegetables on it however note the thermometer next to the grill. Same type of thermometer I use at work where I have a huge hood,self cleaning and fire protected. Still don't like smoke....that one at work is pretty darn noisy on High.

Grilled Hot Italian Sausages w/grilled garlic & tomatoes,deglazed with some beverage tomorrow, house will smell good but maybe not the "facilities" the next day! That's fine them are outdoors...

Just added an 8" Lodge to the pantry, ran it's first seasoning heat tonight. Needs a few more before it's ready.

I swear to god you FFs will argue about anything. If you have a way off using cast iron that works for you, do it. It's a piece of archaic metal, cherished because of the lack of carbon in the iron and the presence of carbon on the iron.

I personally treat my cast iron like I would treat a grill. Preheat before cooking, scrap off the crap, hit with cooking oil, then cook on it. Cleaning? I just remove as much crusty bits and nastiness, if I'm outdoors, I might stick it on the fire to carbonize any junk. Once it's black, it's as sterile as it's ever going to get.

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see an argument in this entire thread. Differing opinions / tips, yes, but your rant sounds about the same as some other ADV'er I once posted a question to just to ask what make/model of part he used on his bike... he immediately spouted off about ADV'ers arguing about anything, when all I was asking was for the part he used.

My guess is - Some guys either don't read threads with the right frame of mind, or there must be some guys who are just out of touch with reality and discussion. Must be utter joys to be around for their friends and family, lol.

Oh, and just for the record, cast iron has about 4% carbon by weight - 4x as much as a "high carbon" knife, but at those levels it clumps and doesn't distribute well for hardening, but is easy to make in a large blast furnace, and so became popular for it's relative ease of manufacture and ability to cast to any shape desired.
