Cast iron and self-cleaning ovens

Fuzzydave | Dec 29, 2007 05:04 PM

So I have a cast iron frying pan that I want to unseason so I can reseason it. I understand that I can run the pan through the self cleaning cycle of my oven. I also am of the understanding that the racks in the oven should be removed because they're not designed to withstand that kind of heat. If both of these assumptions are true, then what do I put the pan on in the oven while it's cleaning itself??
My guess: the racks actually can withstand the heat and everything should be fine.

thanks,

dave
