CLMonkey, my secret for keeping cast iron pans from rusting is simple: never, ever clean them with soap, and always heat them in the oven or on the burner for a minute or two to dry. The iron is slightly porous, and just surface-drying them won't remove all the water. Grinding or chemical de-rusting will do wonders, but remember that unless you season the newly cleaned pan immediately, it'll re-rust right before your eyes!

Jennie, I hadn't thought about using the pan in the oven. Of course that would require the pad to be taken off. (I wonder how long it would take before I forgot...) It looks like a very nice pan, by the way.
