What happens if my lodge cast iron pan gets rusty?

Salvaging Rusted Lodge Cast Iron

Seasoning is an ongoing process. But if, over time, your lodge cast iron cookware develops a metallic smell or taste or shows signs of rust, there is still hope for your pan! Wash with soap (this is one occasion when using soap is permissible for cast iron) and hot water then scour off rust. Season your pan again as though it is a new item.
