You did self clean (how many hours? I can program 2-4 hours) then the vinegar bath?

They look beautiful.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

My gas Viking runs for 2.5 hours then there is a half hour cool down before it will auto unlock. The mrs was pleased I cleaned the oven, too.

The vinegar bath is done last.

Some folks swear by easy-off oven cleaner or lye to clean before the bath but I'm not messing with that stuff.

There is also an e-tank but that will require more research and it's not like I'm getting set up to be a semi-pro.

I use a lye (Drano) vat. It's not that bad. The only rule is to remember is lye into water. Even so keep your face out of the line of fire. It can be reused over and over.

E tanks are not worth the bother IMO. They will reduce rust, but that's all.

Have fun. Old CI is way better than new, and way cheaper. Particularly if it's dirty and rusty.

And the thing is, that once you clean & season it, it's
gotta be keep that way, because it is so prone to rusting again!

I've got at least a dozen CI pans and pots. Some used often, some rarely. I've never had a problem with rust.

A well seasoned pan has what amounts to a plastic coating. Humidity never touches the iron.

Here is the bait of bacon I fried up for dinner in the newly re-furbished #6. I'll be using this one for awhile. The #7 went in the oven tonight for a seasoning and will get it back in the rotation soon. There is a nice sense of self-satisfaction doing this with what may have been a skillet discarded as not worth using.
