Few questions about Cast Iron.

toyopl | Feb 13, 201208:25 PM

Hello, I have a few questions and hopefully I can get some help
I can't really find answers to these anywhere, but I'm stuck with some stuff and don't wanna learn by a mistake.
First time cast iron user, bought Lodge, threw it into oven with self clean on, came out beautifully gray and clean, and I started the flaxseed oil method for reseasoning, so far it's looking great.
But these questions really trouble me before I fire this bad boy off and start making those delicious steaks.

-when heating pan in oven and then placing on the electric glass top to make a steak, do you have to put it on a pre-heated burner ? I’m afraid the glass top might crack from putting heated pan onto unheated top.
-after every warm water wash, do you oil only inside of the pan, or do you oi the whole pan ?
-seasoned pan has oil on the bottom aswell, so when you put it on the burner does the oil burn, like putting oil between a burner and pot/pan ?
