    What's wrong with WD-40. Just wash them when you take them out.

    My Amish grandmother taught me to use rendered lard. It has worked for years for me

    There is a food grade silicone grease that is used on machinery that comes in contact with food products. It's white in color, and has a thick consistancy.

    I don't know how it is on rust prevention, but it's worth consideration.

    What about food grade mineral oil (laxative type from pharmacy).

    XT Bill may be thinking of Super Lube, it has a food rating but it isn't silicone.

    As cubancigar2000 suggested, lard would be hard to beat. Many knives will also develop a dark coating from surface oxidization that will inhibit further rusting as long as they are stored dry.

    If you use some of the general lubricants suggested above (Break Free, WD-40, STOS) you might be able to give your steaks a unique flavor that will distinguish the meat you cook from all others.

    Food Grade mineral oil is what we use in meat packing plants.

    Google "food grade silicone spray" and there are lots to choose from. Shouldn't be hard to find.
