Cleaning..

If it's hard gunk.. I add water to the pan.. let it simmer for couple minutes... Then scrub using stiff brush.

Make sure re oil before storage.

I have a set of my grandmothers I will break out once I get it figured out.
Sorry to beat a dead horse, but look up Kent Rollins on You Tube. He has several good videos on using and caring for Cast iron cooking equipment (Skillets, Dutch Ovens, etc.).

Kent Rollins' videos are great. I watched a few of them.

I tossed an inexpensive lodge Dutch oven because no matter what I did it always seemed to rust. I used it a few times, making sure to rinse it out and completely dry it after cooking and it would still rust. Now wishing I had stumbled across Kent Rollins videos. Maybe there’s still hope for the skillet I still have.

Screwed around with sanding discs for a bit, then picked up a flap disc for the angle grinder. That was the ticket.

Looking good. So by grinding it down, you don't have to fill the crevesas with baked in food bits, if so, makes sense. I bet it was a lot easier and quicker to season the pan once it was much more smooth.

If the Smithy Iron Ware is not pricy enough...

I have seen these in person and they are very nice, smooth and pre-seasoned. But, wow, the price.

Walmart is selling a 10.25'' Skillet 2 Pack for $19.99. That's the lowest price that I have ever seen.

This. I still have one from Goodwill I bought a decade ago for $2 or something silly.

I wish Dutch Ovens were easier to find though. I finally broke down paid paid for a new one (that has a lid that can hold charcoal).

Walmart clearance is your best bet. I got a lodge for around $6 last year. I also got about a grand worth of camping equipment for $120 including the Dutch oven.
