IMO if you are seasoning animal/veg doesn't really matter - once it is fully converted what would go rancid?

Day to day - I do agree, if you have animal fats and they sit I don't think they would be that healthy.

Safflower oil is what we use, probably because it can't go on to thick and thus be gummy.

Flaxseed oil. Cooks illustrated did a great writeup on the chemistry, and tried several different seasoning methods, If you guys want, I'll dig it up and post it.

Cooks illustrated did a good job summarizing the science. Here's the blog they got their information from:
http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/20...ing-cast-iron/

The Cooks illustrated article is in issue 108, Jan/Feb 2011.

I've bought the flaxseed oil, but I haven't tried it yet. I need to strip a skillet back to bare iron first.

I've been using avocado oil for awhile now. Quite thin and takes a high heat well. Always willing to try different things though.

Good read. My Crisco seasoning leaves it looking like her "old seasoned" picture before her restoration on that Griswold. Going to try this.

Thanks! Going shopping for some linseed oil today. I have a couple of pans that need some attention.

DOOOODE. You need to read better. NOT LINSEED oil but the food grade equivalent.
" The food-grade equivalent is called flaxseed oil."

You need FLAXSEED oil. Linseed oil has chemical hardeners that are unfit for human consumption.

I would have gotten the right stuff. I just wrote it wrong.

the whole linseed oil thing just strikes a cord. When I younger and into wood working I was told a story of a friend's relative who got really sick after finishing off a wooden salad bowl/tongues set with linseed oil.

Knowing what it does on my axe handles, and how flammable it is, eating it would be a bummer. Might be interesting to see what it does in a 500 degree oven though.

linseed oil and flaxseed oil are pretty much the same. You can get them at the supermarket or hardware store. Boiled linseed oil is for finishing axe handles and furniture as it has solvents and chemicals added to it for such purposes. It will not go well if you ingest it or use it to maintain a cutting board or salad bowls.
