I had that problem with mine recently. Seasoning just slowly started coming off in small flakes.

Take a good stiff nylon brush to it and get all the loose stuff off. Cook some greasy foods a couple times and wipe it out but leave a bit of the oil behind. Put it in the oven at 500 for an hour and leave it to cool. It should polymerize whats on it and then you can start the re seasoning process like it was new.

Thought that continued cooking would correct the issue but each time I use it more flakes away...And it seems kinda thick to me...

I have used other pans over the Vortex... I know what a pan with all the good stuff cooked away looks like...Had to re-season two of them cause of that...That's not the case here...
my vortex ci pan... work it to death...no seasoning in it...Louie... don't bring that in here...wash it under the hose...

I think when I get the chance I will take a wire brush on the drill and seriously clean off anything that will come loose and then reseason with the flax seed oil...

I used it to night on the grill and it preformed perfectly...Just bothers me to see it in such a state...

When I wiped it tonight, the roughness of the "seasoning" was shredding the paper towel...Not good...Gonna strip it and start over...

One trick is to spray it good with oven cleaner and wrap it tightly in a plastic . Leave it over night and then scrub and season the next day.
