<p>I think this might be from wiping down the glass top of the stove and then leaving the pan on the stovetop.  Aside from stopping this practice, what can I do about the rust?  Would steel wool be ok to use since it's just the outside of the pan?</p>

<p>You can lightly use steel wool to take off the rust, then rub the pan with oil (safflower is good), inside and out, and put in the oven.... I would say maybe 350 for 15 minutes, but CI manufacturers usually have recommendations. If there is any excess oil, just wipe it off with paper towels. If it's still rusty, add more oil and heat a little longer. You don't really want to "bake" the pan, but it needs to get nice and warm through so the oil soaks in and cures. Once you have restored the pan, I suggest hanging it to store. It is less likely to rust if there is no surface contact where ambient moisture and condensation can collect.</p>
