In reality, though, I wonder if the loop will really be that useful. Will Jim take the cover off and hang it up after use, or just leave it in place? It's not like he's going to toss the pan in the dishwasher.

Actually, he does take it off the handle sometimes.  Last night he made the most amazing skillet cornbread to go with the etouffee.  Alton Brown + Jim = Delicious Dinner!

I hear you can put cast iron in the self-clean cycle of your oven and it'll clean them up nice.

Those are both great suggestions but my gas stove has no self-cleaning function! I'm telling you, I gotta take better care of my pans. Maybe if I make cute handle cosies I'll be more inspired to keep them in good shape. With or without the loop! Wink

okay that is sooooo smart! I had a pan with a steel handle so I couldn't grab it while I was cooking, I always used a pothholder, why didn't I think of this! Cheesy

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.

But how do you get out eggs? Or onion and garlic flavour before making pancakes?
