Cast iron -- help!

Icabod | Feb 3, 2012 04:55 AM

Hi, I came home last week to find my cast-iron pan in a soapy sink. Roommate had used it. Sure enough, parts of the surface started flaking off.

The folks at the kitchen store where I bought the pan recommended scrubbing the surface down with a steel brush to remove pieces of the surface that could flake off in the future, and re-season. I did. To season it, I used a very thin coat (wiped it with a paper towel) of canola and baked the pan for an hour at 400. The result doesn't look right.

What should I do next? Any tips on where I went wrong? Thanks.
