I stripped/cleaned it with electrolysis. Bare metal pictures can be seen on the red bench. I then preseasoned it with crisco vegetable oil. This pan is ready to use.I've only seen pictures of one of this style. And I couldn't find anyone that currently owns one of this style within the cast iron community. This is a fairly rare pan. This griddle is hard to price. I know the more common style brings a lot so this one will be priced fairly high. You may never see one of theses for sell again.
