I recently acquired a Griswold Cast Iron Muffin Pan.  Does anyone know about baking or seasoning it or caring for it?

Also, does anyone have experience with a cast iron waffle iron?  Do you use it?

I'm a newbie to the cast iron world and so far I like cooking with the skillets.

Thanks much.

Yes, I used my cast iron waffle iron - the only thing I don't like is how small it is.

Paul has a seasoning article, and I use a bit different process but we both arrive at a nice finish.

Do a forum search for Cast Iron and you'll find Paul's article, if you'd like to read mine too let me know and I'll post a link.

Using cast iron takes a little getting used to, but once you've got a good seasoning and some experience you will love it!

Here you go  http://gnowfglins.com/2010/03/12/how-to-season-cast-iron/

And here is a forum search on cast iron, which may be more info than you want    https://permies.com/bb/index.php?action=search2  but it's all in there.

Let me know if you need any more help...
