OK.. I'll probably catch a hard time for knowing this... but I don't care.
If you truly have a cast iron skillet, (and I know that Lodge unit qualifies) you should "season" it before you use it.
I know you aren't cooking with it... but seasoning will make it last longer. I don't remember the temps.. but you need to rub it down with something like crisco, then bake it in the oven... seems like at 350*.
Once you've seasoned it.. don't wash it... ever! Wipe it out with paper towels, but don't ever, ever submerse it in water, or run it through the dishwasher. Also.. don't use detergents. The residual oil and grease protect the cast iron, and keep it from rusting.
