Cast Iron skillet problems - HELP!

Thanks everyone. It is clear to me now that we have been like first time parents, overly cautious and gentle to what is otherwise an extremely resilient object. Really appreciate all the feedback and time people took to post.

Cast Iron skillet problems - HELP!

Thanks everyone for all the helpful tips and information. I am going to upload a photo. The pan was definitely not a pre-seasoned pan. I do think it may be accumulated burned on food. We've always struggled to get the pan clean. Perhaps we didn't season well since we are new to cast iron.

We were told no soap and no metal so that ruled out ever scrubbing with steel wool. How do you clean your cast iron? We do always fully dry and coat with very thin layer of oil.

Again we really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to post.
Thanks!

Cast Iron skillet problems - HELP!

We had a skillet, seasoned it and thought all was well. We were careful not to use soap or metal implements. Anyway after some time... food was sticking. (perhaps mistake of using a bit of oil in cooking? And then these little black flecks would come off and stick to our pancakes. (Assuming that is old burnt oil residue? Can't imagine it would be part of the pan. It has never rusted at any point.

Has this ever happened to anyone? Should I scour the hell out of it with steel wool and try again? Any advice most welcome.

Thanks,
Pan-less
