Restoring a Hammered Lodge 4-in-1 Combo Cooker
« on: December 06, 2022, 07:39:47 PM »
I picked up this hammered Lodge 4-in-1 over a year ago, so itís about time I got to restoring it to its former glory. I was glad to see minimal rust and not too much buildup of old seasoning.

Even the old lye bath I have made quick work of the old seasoning. One hour in the electrolysis tank did wonders for the bit of rust on it. A good soapy scrub down followed by two coats of canola oil, and itís looking pretty sharp now.
