Again thank you all for the conversation and comments!
Another point I forgot to mention is that in the center, there were rust spots. It reappeared even after cooking lots of bacon.
Never used spray oil, never used soap, always rinsed with hot water while pan was still hot .
I'm going to make bacon in the new pan this weekend!

Some good ideas, we always season our Cast Iron with suit that we got from local meat cuter (AKA Butcher).

I have a new in box Lodge skillet that was sent from Lodge as a replacement to one I previously bought and had problems with.

I had done exactly as the Lodge instructions said .. never used soap or scrubber .. purchased the Lodge brush .. and still food stuck...
Scrubbed with steel wool no soap and re-seasoned in oven 3 times but still food stuck. Lodge customer service simply sent a replacement.

Now am wondering if there is a 'foolproof' way to season that you personally suggest ?

Thank you in advance .. Very much


Tons of info on Youtube about the subject. One guy takes a disc sander to new Lodge skillets and takes all the roughness off claiming they must be smooth to work the best. He goes by Cowboy Kent Rollins and has 100's of Youtube videos.

There is a lot of folklore connected to Dutch Ovens. People believe all kinds of things that are not true. They are actually very forgiving and easy to use cooking pots. Never abuse them. Don't toss them in the back of your truck. Always dry them off. Never put hot water in a cold oven. Then you can pass them on to our kids.

make several batches of bacon. wipe down in between. when im done with my good cast iron i give it a wipe with lard or oil (inside and out, very thin) and toss it in the oven, around 400 (really whatever its at from cooking) and shut the oven. let them cool together. mine took come work (its a newer pan only about 10 years old) but now its smooth and black and cooks great.


Q: Whats brown and sticky???

Don't toss them anywhere.
