    +1 for the old grumps comments, only before firing the pan scrub with steelwool and boil water for an hour and scrub again. Besides, a little paint is not fatal; just not tasty.

    I say to go to garage sales out in the country. Go to the old folk ones. Look for the ugliest, cruddiest, nastiest ones you can find and buy 'em. Take them home and spray them up with easy off oven cleaner. Scrape the crap off and do it again, inside and out. Do it until all the OPF is removed. Now you are ready to wash with hot soapy water and rinse. Season away. OPF = other peoples food

    I like old cast iron for the longer handles.
