    I've never heard of using mineral oil to season cast iron. I and other people at WAGS use mineral oil rather than a food oil to coat cast iron that isn't user pans for storage.

    I had an old Griswold 10 inch skillet that had a lot of black crusted gunk baked on the outside. I used a hand held propane torch (the one used to solder copper pipes) and a metal paint scraper to remove the thick baked on stuff. This method worked quite well.

    I've cleaned the cast iron grates of my bbq grill in the self Gold coast carpet cleaners oven. I put them directly on the oven floor and made sure they weren't touching the electic heating element (not an issue if your oven is gas). If you do this try to scrape off as much crud as you can, gentle use of a wood chisel might work. Be aware though, the oven isn't going to remove any rust. After you get the cast iron clean you will use some other procedure to remove the rust.

    Thanks, it's good to know that you can use the oven. I haven't decided yet but it's good to have options.

    Oven is the way to go. With oven you will able to cook variety of dishes without much trouble of cleaning. I am using it for an year and so and things have been perfect till now.[/url]

    I just went through cleaning a rusted cast-iron pan a week ago. I was going to throw it away because scrubbing wasn't working, but my mom suggested I try rubbing shortening all over the pan and letting sit a little while. Then wipe it off with a cloth or paper towel. If the rust still showed, repeat. I had to go through three coats of shortening and quite a few towels, but she was right. The rust all rubbed off onto the greasy towels, so I cleaned it and now have to re-season it. You would never guess by looking at it that it wasn't new.
