I agree with Critter
Soap is never to be used after seasoning.

Cast iron cookware is the best way to go.
I'm still cooking on the castiron my parents used before i was born. My father in comeing up on 94 and he can't remember how old he was when he got it. I have several outdoor and indoor dutch ovens and numerous fry pans and other pieces.

There's no question it great stuff to cook on, but that Plasmaic kicks it's ass in many area's... I've been cooking on mine for about two years now and i've made about everything in it that i would in castiron and more..

It won't rust orwarp, it holds the heat and cooks evenly... You can use it in the oven and i haven't found anything that sticks in it. You can throw a handfull of sugar in it and when it melts pour it out. You can burn milk in it and wipe it out with a paper towell. You can cut raw potatoes in it, and they will not stick, even without oil of any kind...

It's good stuff, but i do cook on my castiron a lot too... And no you shouldn't use soap in castiron, but you can in the Plasmaic.

About 10 years ago, I pick up4 nice sized cast iron skillets at storage auction. They looked to be in pretty poor shape.I took the to my dad's place and sand blasted them clean. The largest of the 4 had a bad crack in the middle, but the other 3 turned out great. I reseasoned them and I still use them today. Best $5 I ever spent!!!

If you ever need to scour them use salt as an abrasive it works great!

If your triing to remove the caking and start from scratch. Put you pans in a self cleaning oven. They'll be good as new, but you will have to reseason the pans plus you'll have a clean oven
