Is my cast-iron dirty?

chowhormones | Nov 3, 2011 09:26 AM

I've had my cast-iron Lodge skillet for a few weeks now, using it about once a week. I've done all the recommended tips on maintaining it, but when I wipe it clean with a paper towel (some oil), there's some brown stuff. I can do this repeatedly and still the paper turns brown! What's this and is it safe to cook in it?
