What are your Restoration Methods?
We use a multi-stage soaking process to remove most of the rust and built up grime. The subborn stuff is removed with good old fashioned elbow grease. Every effort is made to not leave any marks. Customers must however underatand that there is a human doing actual physical work on your item, and sometimes a mark may get left behind. More often than not the process will reveal scratches, pits, and dings that
were buried under years, even decades, of build up. This is generaly known as "character", and is understood to be part of the originality
and uniqueness that is YOUR cast iron.
Items are gently brought to a nominal temperature in an conventional oven, A very light coat of Crisco is applied, then it is baked at an even higher temperature to polymerize the fats. The item is allowed to cool The heating, coating, and polymerization process is then repeated two more time.

How Long Does the Process Take?

everything that soaking can get. Then it's up to a day of hand work, rinsing off the residue and getting it immediately into the oven for seasoning. Given that some items need more soaking and hand work time than others, 10 days after receiving your item is good estimate
on a turnaround time.
