Regular” or “table” salt does usually contain an anti-clumping agent, like calcium silicate or sodium ferrocyanide, and iodine (see Why Iodine is Added to Salt).

Why kosher salt? Any specific reason for this? In a non-Jewish home will it really make any difference as it is still Sodium Chloride?

when I got my new cast iron the directions said to bake them in a hot oven then to rub them well with oil is this a good method? I have a skillet that tends to stick in the middle any ideas on how I can fix this?
