So as Y'all know I've been E-tanking things like crazy. my Lovely wife came out to the shop and saw me hanging a very rusty, cruddy piece in the tank. Later she came back out as I was cleaning the part up and said "I need you to see if your thingy there will clean up this old Dutch Oven". We found this old cast iron oven in the crawl space under our first house over 20 years ago, and it looked bad then, lots of rust ! I didn't take a picture of the pot before I put it in the tank , but I did think to take one of the lid before it went into the tank.
She has been seasoning her NEW Dutch Oven for 8 hoours now with Bacon grease in the oven, she's SO Happy !
So I think she will be looking over all those old cast iron skillets she from now on.
