Rusty Cast Iron Skillet - how I restore it to a useful thing of beauty?
I love the idea of a cast iron skillet, and received one as a present a year ago. At first, cleaning was relatively easy. I used Maldon Sea Salt and paper towelling. I rub and rub until both salt and paper become discoloured. Now it seems to take ages to clean. And then I oil it and bake in a hot oven.
Just recently, I have found it seems to develop rust easily, and I am wondering if this is because I live in England where the climate is on the damp side.
I would love to love my skillet, but I am beginning to wonder whether it is more trouble than it’s worth! Please help.
