No worries - it never went into the dishwasher, and it's now safely packed away for a move.

Interesting though, that everyone always mentions the drying cycle. I never use mine! They still come out wet, so I was raised to just take them out and dry them when the wash cycle finished.

Funny you should mention that about the drying cycle. I have quit using mine too! What was the point? You still had to dry them.

At any rate...promise you still won't put your cast iron in the dishwasher!!! Ok???? Ha!
