Recently I acquired a new cast iron casserole pot which is about 5qt. in volume. It says on it that it is "Pre-seasoned" and ready to use. From what I've read, I should get rid of that pre-seasoning and re-season it with flax-seed oil. Is that the best thing I can do for it? What is the best method for taking the pre-seasoning off? Also, is this pot the same thing as a Dutch Oven or are there differences? If anyone has some good first timer recipes it would be greatly appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance.
