    I’ve had new and used cast iron over the years. It all worked equally well. I do like the really smooth finish on some of the older ones.

    My cast iron is mostly used, purchased at garage sales. The first thing I do is spray with Easy-Off over cleaner. I think it very important to clean off the OPF. What is OPF you ask? It is simply Other Peoples Food...
    Some may think I'm removing all the good seasoning but I like clean cooking utensils. I always scour clean and towel dry when done cooking with. I don't want my eggs to taste like the fish I had the night before...
    Yes, I do everything WRONG and my cast iron treats me wonderfully...

    I only cook in cast iron and have been eating out of it all my life, I have a lot of it. most of it is 80 or 100 years old or so. as I type this my wife is at our 1930s gas stove fixin breakfast. and by the way you can gently wash cast iron in dawn without loosing the season, that is a myth,,,,,,,,,,

    my primary cooking is done on cast iron skillets and pans from various vintages sizes and shapes. That is why I went for a gas cooktop instead of the glass induction tops. dont have to worry about scratching the stove top.

    I have been using all kinds of different cookware, ceramic being the latest. We have had some cast iron we use, a wok and griddle. Work very well for most stuff. I used the ceramic stuff for eggs and such because they tended to stick to the cast iron. I recently came across a big Lodge cast iron skillet. It was sitting out by a fire pit and needed some care. So I washed it up, scrubbed rust off with an SOS type brillo pad and reseasoned using rendered pork fat. I read that Lodge recommended other vegetable oils but I had just rendered this fat and wanted to try it. I coated the entire pan and baked it in the oven for an hour or so at 350. It came out really well, looks almost new. The interesting thing is frying eggs don't stick. I have done some scrambled eggs too and very little if no sticking. I don't know if the animal fat made a difference but it sure seemed too. I love this thing, 12" is great.

    I do love my cast iron. For cleaning I use one of these with some hot water - https://www.amazon.com/Ringer-Origin...dff5bad75fb775

    It is a piece of stainless chainmail that works great.
