Maybe try some Easy Off, then scrub with a wash cloth or nylon brush after it soaks for a bit. I know this works on baking pans.

There's tons of videos on YouTube about this for reference

Fill with jambalaya. No more stain.

Alternatively, a stainless steel wool scrubber and baking soda paste will have her shiny as a new Buick

Had one exactly like that the other day I had burnt some olive oil in. I Put some dawn soap and water in it and boiled it on the stove for a while. Let it soak In hot soapy water and then scrubbed the mess out of it with a scotchbrite pad. Took a while but shes good now.

This works for us all the time. Best way to clean an uncleanable pot.

my wife says when that happens..........a layer of baking soda to cover the stain, a layer of sea salt on top of that, add a couple splashes of vinegar then scrub with a normal everyday dish sponge.

If the latter, follow the suggestions above. Personally, I wouldn't worry about it as that's burnt in flavor

Thank God I'm in the clear on this one. Screaming little girls distracted mommy. Luckily it was just a little smoke and stain

15w-40 Delo to be exact Actually some pecan oil. I tried to tell her it will fade as we use it. Her answer was to buy a new one and take this one to deer camp. Too expensive and fancy for deer camp.

Yep! My wife loves Le Creuset. Our kitchen is full of it. Made gift shopping easy for the past 4 years.

Get in touch with Le Creuset, they have some type of warranty on them I think.

Take the pan and put it in a garbage bag with some ammonia. Just the fumes will do it Let it soak over night. Take it out and scrub it. It will come off clean as a whistle. It's how I clean my burners

this!


Dry pan, put the powder on it and use a damp (almost dry) soft rag, it will polish it. Make it into a thick paste like tooth paste and scrub.
That is what you are supposed to use to polish ceramic coated cast iron. There is a liquid version too that works but I like the dry better

Id give it a good soak. 24 hours with some dawn and hot hot water. Or attempt to boil some water in it and see if it breaks loose

Bring a few cups of water to a boil then add 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Let it simmer for a few minutes and scrape with a plastic scraper or a wooden spoon. Rinse with hot water.


Being enameled cast iron, you don't want to use too abrasive of a cleaner.

Forget all of that! You will scratch it and make it worse for the next time you use it.

Fill it with water, put in some dish soap, put it on the burner and boil it until the bubbles start to run over. Take it off the heat. Wait about 10 minutes, carefully dump the water and wipe away the spots.

I do this all of the time, especially when I saute' onions and pan fry meat.

Hot water in pan, lay a dryer sheet in the water, let sit overnight. Wipe or lightly scrub out in the morning.
