Do you clean all the used items?
Yes, all our pre-owned products are given a serious cleaning, before they are sold... they are ready to use in the kitchen, table or such.
How is the cast iron cookware cleaned?
It starts with soaking in a 100% lye water bath for several days... remove and hand scrub... set back in the lye bath again... scrubbed once more... soaked in a 20 gallon vinegar/water tank several hours (for any latent rust)... removed and scrubbed again... cleaned with a natural citrus cleaner and scrubbed again... rinsed with fresh water, towel dried... it is labor intensive.
Do you season your cleaned cast iron?
Some is seasoned with oil... some is left natural. See item description.
Will my purchase be carefully packaged?
Yes, very carefully!... We use lots of wrapping materials... our boxes are a bit obsessively taped. We ship several thousand packages a year and rarely have a damaged item... please, email us with any shipping issues.
Generally, purchases made Monday - Thursday are shipped same day or next day... purchases Friday - Sunday are shipped the following Monday (except Holidays).
Shipping prices are USA only - no international shipping - sorry due to many problems, I no longer ship outside the USA... for security, we reserve the right to cancel large order payments originating outside the USA.
