Cast iron leaves food and towels black! HELP!

ramas | Oct 20, 2006 08:41 PM

I purchased a cast iron frying pan (don't yell at me) at Wal-mart. I've wanted one for a long time for frying eggs. It came fully seasoned. My eggs still get black specs on them. I was leaving oil in it just lightly spread around with a paper towel. I don't anymore. I only wash with a stiff brush and only hot water, which is what the company recommends. Every time I even dry this pan My paper towels stay black with every wipe! I am know seeing a small amount of silver instead of black on the bottom edges. I am thinking of returning the thing, but I really wanted to have this thing work for me more. I have fried chicken in this, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, and made spaghetti sauce, and even a brown gravy with hamburg.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
