So should I think that the article on this websites home page is inaccurate?
I think olive oil wouldn't be ideal for seasoning, as it tends to be a bit 'gluey', and then there's the smoke-point thing.
Buy a lodge and fry fish and hushpuppies in it for a few meals. Thats what my granny did. I have done the same with a few new lodges I bought in the last 10 years or so. Seams to work fine. That and Bacon. But not quite sure how vegeterians season cast iron, but interested. I am veryhappy with all of the lodge products I have.
I will check on the smoke point of olive. I am not willing to start frying in animal or saturated fats, so maybe I need to get one good quality pan and see what I can do with it. It's not worth it to me to trade one thing bad for your health for something else. That just doesn't make sense to me. I would probably look at stainless steel if that was the case. We will see how it turns out with one pan.

It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
