Re: food from cast iron skillet may taste funny

said by javaMan:

The thing you never, never want to do though is use dish soap.

I am not sure why people keeps saying this, its one of those wives tales that will never die. 100% false. If the pan or pot is seasoned correctly you certainly can use a mild dish detergent.

Call it an "old wives tale" if you must (to each his/her own) but that has not been my experience after 50+ years of using them nor my grandmother's for that matter. They do cook much better without using dish soap.

Nah, taken care of properly there is no risk. Your immune system has to be challenged if you want to make it stronger and thus not be sick all the time. People that coat their house in lysol every day are constantly sick since they never get dirty.

And what are you trying to imply with this?

I only have one small cast iron skillet (all other cookware is Revereware copper bottom now around 50 years old with some 75 years or more old as it was my mother's only cookware also). I've had the cast iron skillet for probably 40-50 years and I don't recall ever seasoning it. It has a wooden handle so it can't go in the oven anyway. I wash it regularly by hand with the same dish soap I use for all my dishes.

You only have to season it if it's new, rusted or you do something to ruin the existing season. The longer you use it the better it gets. If your pan has a 40+ year old season built up then you have a great pan.

I didn't inherit any good cookware but I am a pretty good cook, so I'm building my own set of individual pieces I like.

I did my cast iron grill grates in a camp fire. Got em hot and soaked em in a mix of bacon fat and peanut oil. It was 102f outside, the AC could barely keep up and I wasn't about to use the oven to do it. Yeah, most of the things I do shouldn't be done by most people, I do them because I never get hurt or destroy things unless that was the original end goal.

I agree with your first comment, and I just mean culinary flavors on the second. If you cook mex one day, hungarian the next, I dont see how you can season anything
