I'm so fashionable!

I've been using my wifes anodized cooking pans to do my HPT. This is not something that makes her happy. Anyway, I've been looking to pick up a small cast iron pan from a yard sale or flea market to keep from upsetting the gods every time I do a hpt.

Today, the wife comes home and hands me a bag with a nice new 10" cast iron skillet in it and mumbled something about how I better stay away from here pans now. Cool, no time like the present to "test" the pan since I have a batch of oil sitting in the still. I grab a small sample of oil, did a hpt, and am pleased to see no bubbles. I let the pan sit on the back burner to cool and after a few hours dump the contents and go to wash it. As I'm washing it I turned it over and looking at the bottom I see this fancy inscribed writing embedded in the pan. "Emeril" My wife bought me a designer pan to do hpt's with.

I better not ask her to pick me up some cloths for when I'm collecting oil or I might be wearing Burberry.

Naaaa she wouldn't have bothered buying you a new pan if she was poisoning you! Especially if you have life insurance. Sorry, j/k

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.
