After I cook my bacon or steaks in the skillet there is a brown residue around the middle, should I try and scrape it off with a plastic spatula or?
I have been scrapping it off but concerned I might be scrapping away then rinse in hot water and wipe dry.

So what is the best way to care for your skillets?

Pictures of brown remnants.

I'll use sand sometimes, no dirt though.

And to answer the question, I scrub that stuff out then reseason it. I have heard people say the can get their cast iron non stick, never been able to fry bacon or scramble eggs in one without scrubbing at least a little cooked on chit out.

OK, that griddle is not seasoned well. It may have been coated in veggie oil instead. I have never seen brown patches boil up like that and it's a bit concerning. I don't think I'd use it until I cleaned and seasoned it.

So clean it. I would start at the glass blasting cabinet, you start at the sink. Hot, hot water and detergent like Dawn. Strip it well, rinse and repeat.

Then put it on a big hot burner. If it smokes a little, proceed, but it shouldn't smoke a lot as oil should be stripped away from the cast iron. If it smokes too much, back to the sink until it's de-oiled, or outside and burn it away until it no longer smokes.

Once clean and hot, season it with lard and repeat until it's nice and black.

Problem gone.

You use salt to properly clean a cast iron skillet

NG, I wish you couldíve seen some of the nasty antiques I have saved with that blaster. Salt wouldnít touch those. But yeah, iíve used salt too.

The blaster gives you a fresh new unseasoned skillet.
