Seasoning cast iron with wooden handle?

Xantha | Aug 25, 201102:01 AM     14

Hello,
I just picked up a very nice little cast iron skillet with a wooden handle (like this: http://www.skeppshult.com/en/product/...) and while it came pre-seasoned I can see light grey spots in it where this has already worn off during transportation and at any rate it is very dull to the eyes (it's grey rather than black), doesn't look well seasoned to me. Obviously I cannot place this in the oven or in a fire place.

I know it's possible to season carbon steel on the cooktop, can I do the same for cast iron? I'm familiar with the techniques for seasoning in ovens described in previous threads.
