I have a rusted, dutch oven skillet. How do I clean and re-season it?

If the rust is a bit deep get some sandpaper and try to remove it. After removal of the rust, clean it well with soap and water, then dry it. Brush some vegetable oil on it and heat in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool. Then reapply more oil and heat for another 30 minutes.

If the rust is only topical then you can rub it out using equal parts vegetable oil and salt. Then follow the instructions for the seasoning and heating from above. Good luck!

Cast Iron Cookware has to be hand washed and dried so it doesn't rust. To remove the rust, you may have to use a scouring pad. To season, rub with vegetable oil, and place in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Wash again, and season as needed.
