Stopped at a flea market today and found a set of 3 Lodge cast iron skillets barely used for $12.50 I didn't really want the two smaller ones, but couldn't pass up the deal!
I noticed the surface in the bigger one was kind of textured, almost pebbely. Not rough at all, just a pattern of barely raised bumps all over the bottom. Not sure if that is a Lodge trait or what. Only other skillets I've seen have been perfectly smooth.
Any input on the textured surface? My first thought was break out the orbital sander and make it smooth and then season it
