I ruined my new cast iron skillet - help!

wino22 | Jan 21, 2010 03:28 PM

I finally received a cast iron skillet for Christmas this year. Everything was going along swimmingly until I took it off the stovetop. I accidentally set it on a rubbery-type potholder/trivet type thing. Now, I can't get the bits of potholder off the bottom! I tried reheating it to melt the rubbery stuff, but it just won't come off... thoughts? suggestions? Thank you in advance.
