seasoning won't stick to areas of cast iron skillet

mom2iande | Dec 2, 2012 01:51 PM

No matter how many times I try to season this skillet there are spots scattered all over that won't "take" the seasoning (I am using canola oil or peanut oil). It was rusted in parts and I've scrubbed it totally rust free/washed it/dried it which is why I am trying to reseason it. I have tried seasoning it at high temps and low temps for long times and for very long times, with repeated applications of thin layers and NOTHING seems to get these spots seasoned like the rest of the pan. Am wondering if I should do the "self-cleaning oven" thing, burn absolutely all the seasoning off and start over.
Any thoughts welcome!
