I tried a couple of times.
It's not working for me
I guess I don't fry enough greasy stuff to get a good seasoning.
Ah well, atleast I eat healthy :dunno:

i am doing as we speak.your tricks,pls share!....its a versatile cooking start.
I found a rusty but not pitted vintage Wagner ten inch skillet in like 2002.
I hit it with caustic oven cleaner in a cardboard box in my garage, left overnight, rinsed it and repeated.
Ran it through the dishwasher and then scrubbed it with soapless steel wool; wiped it with paper towels and set it on a hot stove to flash to dry.
Then a super thin coating of organic (important) flax seed oil, put it upside down in the center of a cold oven, set to 500ƒ and held it there for an hour.
Let the oven go cold, repeat the oil coat-500ƒ thing 4 more times.
Rock-hard and impregnable, black as can be, clean gently with warm water and a natural fiber brush, sometimes kosher salt. Once every month or two I hit it with some more flax seed oil and heat it on the stove just until just before it smokes.
It's a great pan, but I did have to learn how to use it.
MUST refrigerate that flax seed oil or it will go bad. Really stinky bad.

you need to burn in it properly. Since you are from the Netherland you might easily understand this in German:
