    NOTE: I accidentally said olive oil during the cast iron seasoning - I meant vegetable! Only use neutral-flavor oils like vegetable, canola, sunflower, or shortening!

      Flaxseed oil is also good. It creates a great non-stick surface.

    3:46 I think you misspoke here, you meant the 6000 grit. The higher the grit, the finer it is and on that stone, the 1000 grit is on the brown side, the 6000 grit on the white side. Also, you should definitively wash the stone from time to time, because the dust created by the grind is uneven and it will elevate the knife undesirably at certain points of the sharpening.

    About cast iron seasoning: companies like Lodge sell products they call "seasoning spray". DON'T BUY THEM! If you read the fine print, it's just plain old canola oil in a spraycan, except it's sold for $15-20 dollars a can. You can just buy a regular bottle of oil for a fraction of the price.

    "Whetstones are called whetstones because, well, you gotta get 'em wet."
    No. Just. No. To whet means to sharpen the blade of a tool or weapon.
    This is just we need right now. Some white-ass Brooklyn hipster douchebag with ZERO actual professional culinary experience who thinks he can teach the world how to cook. GTFO here with that shit.
    This video proves why you are actually worthless.

    Please, it's "whet" not "wet". "Whet" means to sharpen; "wet" means moistened with water. You do, in fact, wet some whetstones; but you also oil some whetstones, and some whetstones are used dry. The "whet" and "wet" do not share etymology. You likewise "whet someone's appetite" and do not "wet someone's appetite".

    I wouldn't use the quick knife sharpener since it messes up your knife. If your serious about sharpening your knife only use whetstones.

    THANK YOU! That honing rod is NOT a knife sharpener! I asked for a knife sharpener for Christmas one year and got a honing rod instead. I try to tell everyone that they're not one in the same and no one believes me haha. Also, I thought you were supposed to use oil to sharpen the knife? Maybe either oil or water both work well? I haven't tried using water, but it does look like it works.

    _Water_ stones want to get soaked in water. Some stones are much better served with a thin coat of honing oil, or even 3-in-1 if you don't have anything better.

    When re-seasoning cast iron, it is best to do many thin layers of oil rather than a couple of thick ones. The best way to achieve this is to apply the oil, and then use a dry paper towel to buff the entire pan, until there is NO shine left. This helps avoid the sticky thick coating which would be created by using too much oil. Repeat this about 5-10 times, or as many as you can be bothered to do - the more the better! It is also crucial to place it in the oven UPSIDE DOWN as this prevents the oil from pooling on the cooking side. Thanks for the great video as always Babish, I'm gonna have to go source some of that board cream stuff. Sounds ideal!

    Wusthof ikons are sharpened to 14 degrees not 17-20. those quick sharpeners are total garbage and useless not recommended at all. a decent Honing rod for maitenance and whetstone for resharpening. thats all you need. I am a prep cook and I use my knives everyday. havent had to sharpen my knives with a whetstone only honed them in the month Ive had my newest knives (lost the last ones) and they still cut pretty much as well as they did when I bought them.

    WAY too much oil. You should try to wipe out all that you can, leaving a very thin coat. Not doing so leads to drips, a sticky pan and a "seasoning" that has not polymerized.
    Hone before and during every use of the knife.
    Hilarious that people go to great lengths to season cast iron and go to great lengths to remove seasoning from other metals. LOL
    Why dilute the vinegar? It is already diluted down to 5%.

    Cast iron can be frustrating, cause you hear about how awesome it's supposed to be, while your eggs just keep sticking. Have to say, just buy Crisbee cast iron seasoning, follow the directions, & finally enter cast iron zen. Works on carbon steel pans too.
