So should I think that the article on this websites home page is inaccurate?
I think olive oil wouldn't be ideal for seasoning, as it tends to be a bit 'gluey', and then there's the smoke-point thing.
Buy a lodge and fry fish and hushpuppies in it for a few meals. Thats what my granny did. I have done the same with a few new lodges I bought in the last 10 years or so. Seams to work fine. That and Bacon. But not quite sure how vegeterians season cast iron, but interested. I am veryhappy with all of the lodge products I have.
I will check on the smoke point of olive. I am not willing to start frying in animal or saturated fats, so maybe I need to get one good quality pan and see what I can do with it. It's not worth it to me to trade one thing bad for your health for something else. That just doesn't make sense to me. I would probably look at stainless steel if that was the case. We will see how it turns out with one pan.
