I am new to this all, and recently was taught that Cast iron is the way to go in terms of cooking skillets and health. I purchased two from the company Lodge. Unfortunately their skillets come PRE-SEASONED with a GMO Soy based oil (I checked & verified this with the company). Now I've Google'd ways to remove this genetically modified pre-season, and the only suggestions I've been able to find are to use a Self-cleaning oven (I've asked all my friends and relatives and none of them have one!) and the other option was to use industrial chemical alternatives (like oven cleaner product). I am wondering is there anyway around this? I now have these two beautiful cast iron skillets and they are just sitting around teasing me waiting to be used. On one hand I don't want to start rubbing in toxic chemicals into my iron pans, and on the other I don't want to just leave them sitting around being unusable because no one I know has a self-cleaning oven.
If there are any alternatives to this dilemma please let me know!
Thank you so much,
