Hi all

I did a bad thing. I forgot I had left some food in my oven and a week later when unpacking I discovered it. I cleaned it thoroughly but the inside had started to peel. I used a wire brush on a drill to clean it but it only cleaned off the peeling edges so I was left with a patchy bottom. I tried to re-season it but can't seem to get that nice seasoned look again. Is it ruined?

Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

One thing about cast iron is that unless you rust holes in it you cannot kill it.

If it was mine I would burn all the old seasoning off it. If you have a hooded bbq then put it in and get as hot as you can for about an hour. After that all the old seasoning will be just like flakey powder and it can be wiped or brushed away. Leave it on the heat longer if need be.

Alternately a very hot good fire with heaps of coals will do the same thing.

Give it a clean and season it up again.

Does the same rules apply for when you just want to reseason an oven that's starting to stick a bit or can you the oil over the old seasoning?

I often re-season by giving a good wash then a light oil and in the barbecue.  I have actually found that regular use is the best seasoning.

I cook a lot of tomato based dishes (curries mostly) and the acid in the tomatos tend to damage the seasoning a bit so I just do what I said above.
