This Iron Teapot has my name all over it. I'm probably the only person in the state who misses ironing all my laundry. Still do touch up the edges of the sheets, dish towels, etc...I hate 'crinkled edges on my linens!!

I love cast iron and this is right up my alley. I would love to have wood cookstove. Yes I was born a 100 years or so too late.
How do you season the frying pans?
Once they are cleaned up and I'm using them, one only has to wipe the inside with a bit of oil on a paper towel to keep them seasoned.
Going to try that. I think I used too much oil when I reseasoned them. It is getting better. What happened is, I left them in the oven , by mistake whenI was self cleaning it. No good. At 73 you would think I know better. LOL!
Oh ya, that cooked on thick stuff. I've seen "seasoned" new pans look like that, almost looks like shellack.
I have a 1907 black iron range that I use with coal, & I enjoy using my collection of cast iron cookware on it. I even have an antique range in my backyard summer kitchen , so my cast cookware gets year round use.
