If you want to completely strip an old pan and start over put it in your self cleaning oven upside down and Put the oven in self clean mode. It will burn everything off the pan. Then thoroughly rinse and scrub off the powdery residue with hot water and a stiff brush. Put the pan on a burner and heat it up to boil off the water then coat with peanut oil or other high temp oil. Use a lint free cotton bandana or those blue “shop towels“ that come on a roll at Home Depot. Never use paper towels which will leave lint behind. Wipe off all the excess oil with your lint free cloth then put in a 300 degree oven for 1 hour. Repeat that step 3 times.

I was under the impression that soybean and flaxseed oil were the best to coat the pan. Regardless, good guide to reseasoning a pan.

Any high smoke point oil will work. Ive had great success with peanut oil which also happens to be an oil that I cook with pretty often.

I often use peanut oil also, but usually use flaxseed for the first few coats because it seems to last longer. Give it a try sometime and let me know if you notice a difference.

If you buy Viva paper towels, they're pretty much food grade versions of the blue shop towels. They'll scrub out a cast iron pan without a problem.
