I bought a Lodge cast iron skillet last week. I've been using it, and really like it. I will say that I've seasoned it 3 times now. The initial Lodge-provided seasoning was a little light. I've cooked a steak, some hamburgers, eggs, and bacon in the skillet. I've had some sticking with my eggs, so I just seasoned it again this morning. Hopefully, the skillet will now remain non-stick.

I was just curious if this was a fairly typical experience for a new pan. I haven't used any soap, though I did have to brush fairly hard after the steak, as some of the meat stuck to the pan.
