It is hard to actually RUIN a cast iron pan; even if it rusts out really bad, you can recover it and re-season it.

If you get rust, a little or a lot, scrub it out with steel wool and mild soap. Dry it good, oil it lightly all over, and leave it in a warm oven (150-200) overnight. Or put it in the oven while you are cooking something else, like a roast. The more you oil and bake it, the more non-stick and rust proof it will become. To clean it, stay away from soap. Hot water and a dish brush are all you need. Don't use your cast iron for tomato sauce or other liquids that are high in acid.

Happy cooking to you too! Viva la Cast Iron!!!
