    I ordered a few pans recently and they arrived in the mail today. Everything looked like it should except for my carbon steel pan, the 'coating' is chipped and coming off. I don't know if that is the coat I'm supposed to scrub down anyway and season it or if this is a lemon? It's a lodge product. I took a picture because I just don't know what to think of it, could you guys take a look and help me out? Sorry for the less than perfect quality... in the dark didn't work at all and with lights it shines a bunch, I hope you guys can see what I'm questioning. 

    Thanks!!!

    My carbon steel pans made by de Buyere have edges/rims that are of even thickness all around.  If I were you I'd return those that you received in exchange for the d.B.'s.

    Your pans are fine.  What you're seeing is where the coating you're suppose to remove completely before seasoning wore off as a result of handling and packing.
