My wife's Grandmas CI skillet. Just rinsed it out coated with oil and put it in tha hot oven for a an hour before we used it. It is Griswold #3. I use it for grilled onions and mushrooms. Smells great when cooking with steaks or burgers.

I've also tried a wire wheel on the coating. Any one here got any suggestions for getting that stuff off?
Is it porcelain?
If so, I don't think it will come off nor do you want it to?

It sounds like u have one that has the porcelian coating on the outside i have seen some like that before. As for removing it i dont have a clue. Maybe chip it with a hammer or try a grinder whatever u do be very careful porcelian is sharp as a razor when chiped or broken. I have my doubts that u will ever remove it completely

The fact that they are part of your family cooking tradition makes them even more valuable in my view.
Not sure if they all are, but the deep one is a Griswold.

Wearing gloves and eye protection through all my encounters with the Lye water. The Lye will eat up most of the carbon and get you back to the metal. Then you can reseason and use like they were new.

You can use the Lye solution several times. Just make sure you add the Lye to water and not water to Lye.

You can pm me if you want. I have a stubborn skillet in lye water for over a month now....
this man knows what he is talking about ..I have had a skillet down for 30days and i am not worryed

Don't have a camera, other than a cell phone. Is there a way to send a pic via a phone?

If you can upload it to Photobucket, then you can copy the image code and paste that into a post here. I do that from a iPhone with all my pictures here.
