What do you do with iron skillets?

  • 3

For years I treated mine like Dresden china, no soap well seasoned etc. Now that I'm old and lazy I just throw them in the dishwasher. Does this make me a bad person? Will I be drummed off the boards?

  1. If they are seasoned well enough to not come out looking like lumps of rust then I say keep at it! Less work for you!

    edited-added a missing word!

    1. i don't know..i laughed out loud at 'Now that I'm old and lazy'.
      well, let us know how it goes..maybe i will follow you....I don't know about old but I'd love to be lazy.

      1. my mom used to use them to pound tent stakes into the ground when I was a kid.
        I actually used this same pan last night! LOL
