I LOVE my CI skillets. LOVE EM!
But, you call that a mess? When I got mine from a craigslist seller they had been literally stored under their minibarn for years and had at least 1/4 of crud on them. One of em (a 12" Lodge) is my all time favorite skillet to play with now.
Great job on the seasoning!
