I use Sesame oil. Quarter size drop, rub around with a cloth or paper towel. Leave a shine on the pot.
I use a stiff plastic scrub brush to scrub my skillets clean with hot water,
then dry, then the oil while they are warm.
Be aware, cast iron is heavy and heavier when filled with food.
I sprained my wrist lifting my cast iron skillet out of the oven.
And it takes time to cook with cast iron.
I like the steel skillets better than the cast iron for frying. Treat the same
as the cast iron. Best fried potatoes you can make!!!
