Care of Enameled Cast Iron Cookware

If used according to manufacturer's instructions, your enameled cookware will give you many years of reliable service.

While enameled cast iron cookware can be used in most methods of cooking, it is not recommended for use over a camp fire or a grill.

Before using, be sure to use a cooking spray to prevent foods from sticking. Enameled cookware comes in a large variety of styles and colors.

Tips to Preserve Your Enameled Cookware

Enameled castiron cookware is ovenproof up to 400 degrees F. Any temperature higher than 400 can damage the handles. Pans should be placed on burners that are of the approximate same diameter.

Using large pans on small burners can warp the pans. Use low to medium heat when cooking on top of the stove, and never slide the pan across a glass or ceramic cooktop.

Make sure you do not apply high heat to an empty pan, as it can cause the enamel to crack or the pan to warp. Because the cookware is enameled the coating can chip if the pan is dropped.

Cleaning Tips for Le Creuset Cookware


Cleaning Enamel Cookware

Wash only after the pans have cooled, use mild dish soap, and use a plastic scrubbie, rather than a steel or copper one. Even steel wool might scratch the enameled finish.

Stains can be removed with a solution of 1 tbsp. bleach to a gallon of water.

Do not use straight bleach on the surface; it can cause pits to form in the enamel, damaging the cookware.

Do not allow your enameled cookware to air dry. Instead, hand dry it immediately and store with cardboard or rubber feet between the pieces to prevent chipping and scratching.
