About all I cook on is cast. I know I dont have an iron deficiency. Couldn't see your photos, probably my end though. This phone sucks.I love cast iron. Someone foolishly sent a couple of mine through the dishwasher so a clean up and reseason was necessary.

After a couple of heating and cooling cycles the oil was reduced to a nice waxy coating and they were back to making great food.

I'm sure you charge them enough to trash a few Teflon pans, good thing ya really can't wreck a cast pan. I have resurrected them from the woods found at old logging camps.The reason why this one got dishwashed was because I rent my cabin by the week during peak months when I'm not around. They also trashed my teflon pans within a year. I put away my favorite pans (both teflon and cast) and all the steel cooking utensils as people apparently have no clue how to treat things.
Yes we do OK on it, and what isn't covered with rental income is tax deductible.I'm sure you charge them enough to trash a few Teflon pans, good thing ya really can't wreck a cast pan. I have resurrected them from the woods found at old logging camps.
I was just reading about CI cookware. I guess the older stuff is more desirable as it's naturally smoother due to the method in which it was made. Newer cookware is all sand cast which leaves a rougher surface which of course will smooth out with age but will always be rougher than the vintage CI.
