How to Restore a Rusty Cast Iron Pan
“It isn’t hard to maintain a cast-iron pan, but sometimes life gets the better of us and we don’t follow proper use, maintenance, or cleaning protocol. But just in case you forgot, lent your pan to a less-discerning friend, or just inherited an old, beat-up pan, it’s good to know how to resurrect a wrecked and rusted skillet.”
Several years back my husband and I were gifted with some fantastic cast iron cookware, and unfortunately as cast iron newbies we didn’t properly care for it. However, I’ve never been able to let go of it even as it sits in the back of my pots and pans cupboard unused for years. After reading this helpful post, though, I have been able to revive that wonderful cookware and put it back into service.
