    Default How to revive an old cast iron pan


    I have a great cast iron pan with a lid that I haven't used in 20 years. It has a bit of rust on it. A few years ago I tried to bring it back to life by putting oil on it and putting it in a very hot oven but I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do. The oil became sticky as I remember. I'd like to start using it again but I'm not sure how to treat it.

    Sorry this question is so vague. I just have a sense that it's not usable right now because the oil on it is rancid and old. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
