I season with three coats of solid vegetable shortening in the oven for about 6-9 hours. My cast iron does not appear black, but rather a dark bronze. Perhaps you can say it has been restored as close as possible to its original condition. All the nasty baked on crud and carbon buildup have been cleaned off which leaves you with a nice piece for use. It is ready to be included in your cooking rotation the day it is received.
I do not oil my cast iron so to look better for the pictures. I do not varnish, paint, or smoke my cast iron on the inside cooking surface to make it appear shiny and smooth!
I will list flaws that are worth noting, or not visible in the pictures. My pictures will have sufficient light to show, and not hide defects and/or problems.The pictures listed are to be considered as part of the description. Therefore you are encouraged to review them, and ask any questions. Again, the pictures are to be considered as part of the description, so please review all pictures.
