Q: I received a lovely Lodge cast iron skillet for Christmas. But I have two issues:
The burners on my gas range run quite hot and close to the iron. I think it's burning off the seasoning. I would re-season in the oven, but it doesn't fit in my teeny-tiny apartment oven!
What can I do to save my cast iron?

Editor: Since the pan doesn't fit in the oven, the next best way to season it is just to use it. (Cook a lot of bacon!)
Readers, do you have any other advice to help Lesli season and use her cast iron skillet?
