    Rapeseed often gets recommended for cast iron pans but I find if you heat it very high it smells a bit fishy, so we tend to use lard for searing now. It's not a problem at lower temperatures though.

    Mmmm, I have neither cast iron pans that aren't enamelled, nor much of a sense of smell due to sinus probs. So can't say I've ever noticed :laugh:

    Mmmm yes, it's just a "wipe clean after use" kind of thing then... I use heavyweight stainless steel pans for frying - which I can also wang in the oven as they're all metal.

    Hmm....

    Problem is, after you have been using it for several years, feeling all healthy and smug, some "expert" will publish "research" saying it is toxic. This applies to any food or drink product IMHO. ;)

    Akh, I subscribe to the school that says everything is fine in moderation - including moderation.

    They shouldn’t if seasoned properly.

    Salt 'n' Pepper stops rust. :laugh:


    Yep I know what 'seasoning' a pan is but I treat it the same as my Steel Wok and my Balti pan and just wash all 3 simply in very hot water and use a washing up brush (the water is too hot to stick your hands in) then dry with kitchen roll just before I use them.

    It pains me that nobody knows what it is when there’s thousands of yellow fields :/

    It makes me sneeze my head off when it's in full bloom. Looks nice though.

    I use Rapeseed oil, and buy a big tub of it every now and again (lasts ages). I used to get it at the farmers market but they didn't attend it when I needed a replacement so mail order from Oxfordshire over half term. I use it for general cooking but also in a few cake recipes and bread etc.

    Why would you need to mail order rape seed oil?
