Re-Seasoning Cast Iron Skillet

Dexinthecity | Mar 5, 2012 12:52 PM

So I'm trying to re-season my lodge cast iron skillet. I followed the instruction on the lodge website which is:

- Use vegetable oil and spread around inside and outside of the pan
- Put inside a 350 degree oven for one hour

so that's what I did, but when I took it out and let it sit I tried ti wipe it down with a paper towel and it was sticky and left a white residue on the pan.

Should I put it in longer? why is it sticky?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
