Q: I own a cast-iron tortilla press and use it frequently, but it’s starting to rust! I never thought of seasoning it because it’s not used to cook anything, but am I supposed to? How else could I prevent it from rusting?

Editor: Yes, try scrubbing away the rust and then rubbing a little oil into the spots.

Readers, do you have a cast iron tortilla press? Do you keep it seasoned?
