Thank you so much.. this is great :)  I have been keeping it clean and dry with paper towel.. but the other day I put it on the stove top and it got nice and warm and dry. thanks for the tips!

 if it is pre-seasoned you should be able to start cooking with it. The more you use it the darker it will get. Some say to wash it in hot water no soap and never use scrubbers on it, because that will take the finish (seasoning) off of it. My MIL use soap to wash hers and she is an old time country cook that grew up with cast iron pans. You do need to always dry them completely or they will rust. I dry mine on the stove top - low heat for a few minutes or you can dry them in the over or with a towel.  If you are going to use a towel I recommend a paper towel because you get black from the seasoning on the towel. Hope this was hopefull.

DH uses the cast iron, he uses it, heats some water in it, to loosen up the bits stuck on it, wait until the water cools, dumps it out, wipes it with a paper towel and then puts oil in it to keep it moist.  I don't deal with it because its so heavy, so I use our other pan.  lol

Thank you so much for the link ;)  I got this one at big lots..it only cost $15!!

Here are some basic care instructions for a cast iron skillet.  I've never had one, but from what I've heard, this is all you need to do.  Also, curing and seasoning are the same thing when referring to cast iron cookware.  Since your pan comes pre-seasoned, you don't have to worry about that until it starts to have issues such as the ones addressed in the link.  Here is a direct link to the seasoning instructions they provide.


Someday, I swear I'm going to get a cast iron skillet.  I want one so badly!
