    More is always better but cast iron is nearly indestructible. Even if you washed it with detergent you can reseason it.

    the threads that i have seen here really pushed me over into looking for one..

    a year or so back i got a few wagners i believe from the pawn shop, got em for like 5-10 bucks a piece, was going to hawk them on ebay but never got around to it, they are very pricey on there

    now i might keep them,

    but i figured for 10 bucks i could help to decide if i really do like cast iron,

    also i was getting tired of my girlfriend destroying my teflon coated cook where, ie she uses metal utencils and cuts it up badly ..

    now i only have to worry about her breaking my cast iron skillet ..

    You can sand it out and then re-season it. They'll last you a lifetime and then pass it down to your kids. I have some frying pans from my grandmother.
