Cast Iron Skillets. You dig them?



What's the best way to cook a burger at home, on a gas stove?

I heard that Cast Iron Skillets are the way to go.

Would you agree? Have you tried burgers on them?

if there are just spots of rust around the outside, do you have to strip the seasoning completely? Or can you just wipe it off with a washcloth or something and reseason then?

A resounding yes from me. Burgers and even steaks are great in iron skillets.

Okay guys, I am wanting to do the flaxseed oil seasoning for my cast iron skillets. One question...where can I get flaxseed oil?

Hy-vee and Trader Joe's had Flax oil...but it was in with their dietary supplements. It was a small bottle, and had rosemary in it as well. The label also specifically said to not expose the oil to direct heat. The bottles were very small, if this is the right stuff I would probably have to be a few bottles (I have five cast iron skillets to do)

Would Whole Foods Market have it? I know there is one out by Microcenter on Metcalf, is that the only in the KC Metro? Any other places that would have this stuff?

Thanks in advance for the advise guys!

I have a chef's knife from WS - goes for $140. Wusthoff version... Love it. In fact, I have 2 of them. Willing to let the other go for $100 or trade for something of interest. I like this knife better than either of my shuns or my global.

*To strip a cast iron pan of seasoning, spray it with oven cleaner, wait 30 minutes, wash with soapy water, and thoroughly wipe with paper towels. :

I am highly skeptical of the bolded section. I don't like the idea of cleaning a skillet with Easy Off.

You can use lacquer thinner if you want.

Here is a google article I found that explains the pros of using food grade flaxseed oil to season a cast iron pan:

http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/20...ing-cast-iron/

According to article, food grade flaxseed oil needs to be kept refrigerated. I am going to give Whole Foods a call in the morning and see if they have any.
