    NOTE: I accidentally said olive oil during the cast iron seasoning - I meant vegetable! Only use neutral-flavor oils like vegetable, canola, sunflower, or shortening!

      Another point I was told; never use soap in cast iron since it's porous so it can hold onto the soapy flavor. Especially if you're scouring it. That being said I'm no professional chef.

      I just got my first Cast Iron skillet for free - it's used, and has crap all over it, so I definitely need to clean and re-season it. I have steel wool, is it OK to use normal de-greaser dish soap to clean the pan before seasoning, or do I need some sort of special soap?
      Also, how to clean the pan after using? I heard you're supposed to only rinse it with water, and just scrub it with steel wool (no soap) after using, is this correct?

      I've been told numerous times that you should NEVER use Soap on cast iron as it absorbs the flavor. Instead, use Hot water with Coarse Salt and A brillo pad.....What are your thoughts on this? You also said vegetable oil BTW lol

    The whet in Whetstone means “to sharpen”. I would also suggest once you’re on the finest part of the stone to alternate sides with every stroke to ensure even sharpening. Some whetstones use sharpening oils instead of water. I would just follow the instructions that came with it. Most whetstones also need cleaning to remove the metal shavings that will rust and clog the pores of the stone. You can usually wash in soapy water and scrub with a wire brush, but follow the included instructions if they say something else.
    Also, Unless your blades are in absolute abysmal shape, you probably shouldn’t use the coarse side of the pull through sharpener, or any sharpener for that matter, as it will remove way too much material from the blade and you’ll have to replace your knives too often.

    I tried reseasoning my cast iron pan today using this video for guidance. It's worth noting that you should only use, like, a teaspoon of oil, because I definitely rubbed it down with too much oil the first time. What I didn't know was that this would create a sticky film. Like, fly-paper sticky. I had to scrub it all off and do it again using quite a bit less oil. Worked like a charm.
    The moral of the story is, "a generous coating of oil" means: be less generous than you might think.
    PS - I also sharpened one of my knives using your whetstone method. I had to give it much more than 10 passes on the coarser grit side, since this was long overdue, but it worked great!

    Don't get a whetstone with such a span! 1000 on one side is great when you want a good base for a knife that isn't in too terrible a shape to begin with, but don't jump directly to 6000.. Just get 1000-3000 you seriously won't feel the difference after using the honing rod and you'll have much easier time getting the knife good and sharp!
    Also: use the honing rod after each time you clean the knife and then wipe off the knife with a dry or damp cloth, this way you'll always have a great knife, and you prolong the "lifespan" of the sharpness.

    was it a mistake when u said flipping to 1000 which is fine side. when its actually the coarser side of the two when u originally introduced the whetstone as 1000/6000. error must be brought to awareness!

And his whole thing was being simple and straight to the point with a dry sense of humour? Or when his videos actually seemed to have a lot of research put into them? Yeah, that was pretty cool.

    3:46 I think you misspoke here, you meant the 6000 grit. The higher the grit, the finer it is and on that stone, the 1000 grit is on the brown side, the 6000 grit on the white side. Also, you should definitively wash the stone from time to time, because the dust created by the grind is uneven and it will elevate the knife undesirably at certain points of the sharpening.

    About cast iron seasoning: companies like Lodge sell products they call "seasoning spray". DON'T BUY THEM! If you read the fine print, it's just plain old canola oil in a spraycan, except it's sold for $15-20 dollars a can. You can just buy a regular bottle of oil for a fraction of the price.

    "Whetstones are called whetstones because, well, you gotta get 'em wet."
    No. Just. No. To whet means to sharpen the blade of a tool or weapon.

    Please, it's "whet" not "wet". "Whet" means to sharpen; "wet" means moistened with water. You do, in fact, wet some whetstones; but you also oil some whetstones, and some whetstones are used dry. The "whet" and "wet" do not share etymology. You likewise "whet someone's appetite" and do not "wet someone's appetite".

    THANK YOU! That honing rod is NOT a knife sharpener! I asked for a knife sharpener for Christmas one year and got a honing rod instead. I try to tell everyone that they're not one in the same and no one believes me haha. Also, I thought you were supposed to use oil to sharpen the knife? Maybe either oil or water both work well? I haven't tried using water, but it does look like it works.

      As a general rule, you heard right. I found that the best way to clean cast iron in between uses is to lightly scrub it with kosher salt and a hand towel. But if your seasoning is in need of action (chipped, rusted, uneven, etc) soap CAN be used as long as you get all the soap off with water, and then all the water with heat (throw it in the oven)

    When re-seasoning cast iron, it is best to do many thin layers of oil rather than a couple of thick ones. The best way to achieve this is to apply the oil, and then use a dry paper towel to buff the entire pan, until there is NO shine left. This helps avoid the sticky thick coating which would be created by using too much oil. Repeat this about 5-10 times, or as many as you can be bothered to do - the more the better! It is also crucial to place it in the oven UPSIDE DOWN as this prevents the oil from pooling on the cooking side. Thanks for the great video as always Babish, I'm gonna have to go source some of that board cream stuff. Sounds ideal!

    Wusthof ikons are sharpened to 14 degrees not 17-20. those quick sharpeners are total garbage and useless not recommended at all. a decent Honing rod for maitenance and whetstone for resharpening. thats all you need. I am a prep cook and I use my knives everyday. havent had to sharpen my knives with a whetstone only honed them in the month Ive had my newest knives (lost the last ones) and they still cut pretty much as well as they did when I bought them.
