Gift from the wife

Yeah you gotta season CI correctly. I remember a thread here years ago from one of the good old boys that detailed the sanding and seasoning of cast iron. If I had time I’d find it.
You shouldn't need to sand C.I. pans with the correct seasoning it should/will fill in the little bumps and voids.
Keep using them and seasoning them until the bottom of the pan is as slick as a baby's butt.

Just now reading through this thread, and didn't see what I expected to see. Normally when my wife comes home with a "gift" like that for me, it comes with a price. Your wife didn't break anything or max out the credit card?

That's a great wife, and a great gift. CI is the gift that keeps on giving.

i disagree with post about no sanding needed.. why are all the old ones smooth? and they work.. if you season enough to make smooth , I would never buy a new on. it would take for ever. and if ya use a little tomato in it the acids take the season ,,, you want easy to use not put it away. and veg oils work but if ya have a few of em and don't get to use regular it does go rancid and flax seed oil does not..
