A few years ago I heard that flaxseed oil — not vegetable oil or shortening — was the best oil for seasoning cast iron. I'd always wanted to put that theory to the test, but decided to wait until I'd sufficiently neglected my own cast iron skillets to warrant a full re-seasoning. (It was bound to happen at some point.) That day finally came a few weeks ago. Thanks to my lazy maintenance, the seasoning on my 12-inch Lodge skillet had become patchy, rough, and sticky. But this time around…

Cast Iron Cookware | Old vs New | Pre-WW2 pans are lighter in weight & the walls & bottom are thinner than a modern Lodge skillet, having a much smoother interior surface as a result of the superb iron ore that was found near Lake Erie & also the machining that is no longer done to save on labor expense. Left: a Lodge 8SK 10.5" skillet. Right: a Favorite Piqua Ware skillet of the same size. The Lodge is probably 16 years old while the Favorite is at least 74 years old.
