If you have to have the outside clean, you could give it to me. I'm not fussy about the outside, that's just age, and experience!

But if they're _really_ bad, some folks do clean em.

Little Kopit got it correct.

1. Electrolysis
2. Self-cleaning oven

I'd add 3 - media blast. Not sand, but something much gentler like walnut husks.

I re-season and clean every now and then. But none of my cast says "griswold" on it.

A elderly lady down the street ask Me if I would like to have all Her black iron cook wear. She said it was to heavy to handle any more. I took it! The problem is: She never washed the outside. It has a crust at least 1/4 inch thick. Inside is cleaned and seasoned well. What can I do to get the crust off short of using a jack hammer?



Don't clean the outside, the baked finish keeps it from rusting.
The same reason you don't wash it in soapy water.
When I season a piece, I do it inside and out. Enjoy.

The neighbor must think a lot of you to give you her Cast Iron.

I had some given to me that were pretty cruddy. I lit the charcoal grill and put them in it, closed the lid and left it overnight. In the morning when everything had cooled, the crud was all burned off. I reseasoned them and use them to this day. YMMV
