Cover Me with Toe Jam and Love Me Like a Cast Iron Skillet

Yes, I was.

I do it just like the folks at Lodge Cast Iron in South Pittsburg, Tennessee tell me to do it.

Hand wash. Dry immediately – even before first use.

Rub with a light coat of vegetable oil after every wash.

How much oil? Just enough to restore the sheen, without being “sticky.”

You do this to keep the iron seasoned and to protect it from moisture.

Wouldn’t you like to be loved like that?  Think about it.  The hand wash and just enough vegetable oil to keep your “sheen” (but not be sticky).  It does sound wonderful to me.
