Hello! Someone just left my *only* week-old cast iron pan on the stove, and before I smelled it, it got burnt. I mean, it's completely covered in almost black layer of burnt oil (I wiped it with some rapeseed oil yesterday, as I always do after cooking with it), except for a small spot in the middle (it still has golden-to-dark brown colour, which the whole pan had earlier). Is it safe to cook on it now, or should I scrape down/off the black layer completely and re-season it? I hope it isn't unsalvagable...
Thank you for your help!
