Great primer on cooking with and caring for cast iron skillets

Cast iron skillets should be a part of everyone's kitchen, but some people feel intimidated by with the preparation, use and maintenance. This nicely-produced video by Tasty shows how even an old hand-me-down skillet can be transformed into the perfect tool for great stovetop results.

They take each step from refurbishing, seasoning (flaxseed oil FTW), drying, scrubbing with salt, and smoking the oil a bit to set the fresh seasoning. They also dispel the myth that you can never cook anything remotely acidic like tomatoes in a cast iron skillet.
