Re- the oiling of cast iron

EWSflash | Feb 2, 201104:56 PM

What's the general consensus about using mineral oil to oil cast iron instead of cooking oil? I've oiled pans and put them away for a long time and they sometimes get a sticky texture and/or funky rancid smell after a long time of not being used. A chef's dad once told me that he used mineral oil to season his cutting boards to keep the smell of rancid oil from happening.

True? False? Good idea? Bad idea?
