re: Lodge cast iron, anybody cook with it? - btrcj
Rip I do not see much seasoning. I would tackle the rust at this point. I use stainless steel wool and soap to scrub iron. Scrub it see how much comes off. you can try vinegar also. This is where a electro tank would come in handy. It does have some pitting but i have seen much worse. It will t...

re: Lodge cast iron, anybody cook with it? - btrcj

Rouge, Electro tanks are easy to setup. I say go for it. All you need is an old manual battery charger or an old AT computer PS and you are more than half way there. It can also remove old seasoning in time so you may not need a lye bath. Lye bath is easier and no power needed. You can also t...

re: Lodge cast iron, anybody cook with it? - btrcj
Rouge, i can understand your concern but Lye is used in soap making, to cure olives and for making bagels. I guess it can be considered a poison but in concentrated form is caustic. I would bet it would eat skin before it could poison you. It rinses off of iron with soap and water and does not ...

re: Lodge cast iron, anybody cook with it? - btrcj
I use two methods to strip iron. Lye bath to remove old seasoning and gunk. Electrolysis tank for removing rust. I do a lot of iron so have setup both tanks. Both methods are gentle on the iron, very effective and will not alter the iron in any way. Collectors will know if you sande...

re: Lodge cast iron, anybody cook with it? - btrcj
Cast iron is one of my hobbies. If you want to cook with it and not interested in history or collecting get lodge cast iron. New Lodge is a little heavier and coarser finish then the old stuff but it cooks just as well as any. What I like to do is find old rusty and/or grungy iron and r...

re: Is my cast iron screwed? - btrcj
Two things Do not build a fire and use it to strip cast iron. If it is Lodge or BSR it may be ok but you run a risk of warping the piece. Also, do not use steel wool. it can get in the cast iron. Stainless steel wool should be used. If SS wool does not work then GeauxldMember is correct. ...
