Is there something about oven cleaner in there? Certainly not! I think my husband just scrubbed the stuffing out of it with a brass brush. I can ask what he did, but we don't have oven cleaner here.

Re: Seasoning cast iron help for vegetarians

They sell metal scrubbies real cheap at the grocery store if you need to deep clean your pan. I would also not ever suggest using oven cleaner.

Not for me. I've seasoned three pans and I third(?) the flax oil recommended above. Olive oil left my pans sticky.

I use macadamia nut oil. I have heard that olive oil can make the pan sticky, like the pp said.
