Greetings AT, I just bought a used hackman tools cast iron skillet and despite numerous cleanings, it still produces a plastic/fishy smell. I am not sure if they removed the protective coating before they used it, but i have never had anything cast iron smell so bad. Anyone have any luck cleaning stinky cast iron? If so let me know. - Thanks, K step-by-step photos and instructions on how to season cast iron. Any other ideas? Anyone ever faced really stinky cast iron?
