Not only did you get a great deal for $5.00, you did a phenomenal job restoring them all!

Great buy- I have posted many times about my great finds at garage sale for a couple of bucks . Yes they can be really disgusting. I use a drill with a wire brush on them works great to get in and around the handles. Then a good cleaning and seasoning the results are cast iron "gold".
Great job

Give that lady a big hug!


Tell you what. I'll give you $25.00 for the Dutch Oven alone.

You'll make 100% profit on your $5.00 investment and $15.00 plus getting to keep the other 4 pieces for your restoration efforts.


Good for you for getting such a great deal and your restoration is fantastic.

I guess I need to start hitting the yard sales around here.

Great job
Has anyone ever tried bead-blasting to clean them up? Sand-blasting, even with extra fine grit, would probably pit them.

Soda blasting might work. That's what they use to clean bottom paint off of fiberglass boats. It doesn't harm the gelcoat.

What's Soda blasting? Baking soda (Fine powder) or such?


I don't think fine sand blasting or glass bead blasting would cause any more pitting then the cast already had to begin with due to the rust.

As long as the pan works when finished whatever method used to clean it is acceptable.

I am impressed, if not a little envious! You did a magnificent job of cleaning them up!
