Another good way to clean a well-seasoned cast iron without water:

1.) Wipe it clean with a paper towel
2.) Use rock salt or sea salt as an abrasive to "scrub" any stuck bits off the pan . This also helps pick up remaining oil in the pan.

I've never thought of frying a hot dog, but I will now.

Sorry about your cast iron.

You can, just be very careful not to move it around a lot, make sure the bottom is really well seasoned and smooth( I actually took the sander to the bottom of mine to make it perfectly smooth, then seasoned the heck out of it)

I do it fairly often at my parents house, and they have a white glasstop. So it shows every imperfection. Mom does it also, not as often as I do. I would not suggest only cooking on cast iron on glasstops, but for things that go from stovetop to oven I would do it. Also don't put the hot cast iron back onto the stovetop, put it onto a trivet.

Thanks mb82! I like the idea of using it from stove top to oven. Will need to try it sometime soon.

I had to buy SWMBO her own cast iron. Mine are ancient with a great season. My wife just doesn't understand you can't let these soak in water overnight every time you use it

After the second time I had to reseason she got her own pan. I don't care how often she screws it up as long as she leaves mine alone.

As far as using on flat cooktops, don't worry about it, just don't scoot them around or you may scratch.

Dude................. time to man up!

She watched YOUR kids so YOU could earn some extra $$$ for YOUR hobby. She even fed YOUR kids.

And you're upset because YOUR pan was cleaned but not the way YOU like it? WTF?

Priorities man. Priorities. I know this is a man site, dedicated to a man's hobby, but YOU sound ridiculous. YOUR Man-Card has now been revoked.

How are YOU gonna get it back? Ripping me a new one is not how YOU are gonna do it.

Reason: Flame suit on!

Until I discovered the internet, I didnt know that there were so many people who never get irked by little things. Personally, now that I know I am one of a very few people who gets annoyed by things that arent matters of life and death, I am really feeling inferior. Here's my man card too, slyko, you can have it. You obviously want it.

There are always petty issues that people with nothing else to worry about complicate their lives with.

Dude,

It's not for me. I don't hate. I'm not trying to dis you. As noted, this whole issue is rather petty.

Step back. This is an opportunity to learn.

It's OK. You've already seen it. Good for you. I'm out!

Reason: It's not my card. I have my card. I want YOU to have YOUR card. ;-)
