To clean Le Creuset pots, let the pot cool, fill it with warm water and let it soak for up to 20 minutes. Use a brush to work away larger objects and a soft pad to remove smaller particles.
To clean a Le Creuset pot or pan, use the following steps.
- Soak the pot
- Wash the pot
- Dry the pot
After cooling the pot, let it soak in warm water. Do not soak it in cold water, as the change in temperature may crack the enamel.
Use softer cleaners such as brushes and pads to wash the pot. Abrasive metallic pads or strongly abrasive cleaners may scratch the enamel, so users should avoid them.
Dry the pot thoroughly before putting it away. Moisture can damage the enamel.
To remove stains, try the Le Creuset cookware cleaner. Users can put their pots and pans in the dishwasher, but this can cause wear and tear on the enamel over the long term.
