Sometimes you get some petrified crud on your cast iron skillet. An easy trick is to boil a bit of water and use your flat edged stainless steel spatula to gently remove the gick.

Since a cast iron skillet is gonna have layers of seasoning on it, you wanna gently remove the crusty gick while leaving the seasoning layers behind.

This is my griswold cast iron skillet. Probably around a hundred years old and still going strong. It has a good, glassy surface.

My article on using a cast iron skillet is at http://www.richsoil.com/cast-iron.jsp

Never leave water in a cast iron skillet longer than two or three minutes or you could get rust.

The best way to get water out of a cast iron skillet is to use heat.

Cold water in a hot cast iron skillet could cause it to crack.

I'm using organic shortening / palm oil to season this cast iron skillet.
