Self cleaning oven...
Put the cast iron pan in the oven upside down and run it through a self clean cycle. might still be some stubborn rust spots
or if you prefer I have had great results with plain white vinegar for rust removal on chains. stick the pan in a clean bucket , and cover with white vinegar. let sit overnight, but leave the bucket outside or in the garage, it can stink a bit while it works.
