Many times rusted cast iron can be found for a very small cost. And with just a little TLC, it can easily be brought back to life! Seasoning and/or Restoring a cast iron skillet (or pot) does take time, maybe the better part of a day, but is without a doubt worth it!
**Just as a note, many Cast Iron Pieces will say "Seasoned" or "Pre-Seasoned" on their labels, but it's ALWAYS best to wash and season your cookware for yourself once or twice before you use them for the first time.**
