QUICK TIPS FOR COOKING
An enameled Dutch oven is one of the most versatile cooking tools you can own!
Use it on the stove and in the oven up to 500˚F, or safely store it in your fridge to marinate food or refrigerate leftovers.
The durable enameled surface can handle acidic and alkaline ingredients like tomatoes, wines, and citrus ingredients.
To start, choose a burner closest to the size of your Dutch oven and preheat with a little oil before adding food.
Don’t preheat an empty Dutch oven on your stovetop—this can cause your cookware to crack or break.
Some bread recipes call for preheating the Dutch oven in the oven.
This is perfectly safe to do since the heat will be more consistently distributed across the entire Dutch oven.
Just like with all of our classic cast iron cookware, enameled cast iron has great heat retention, so there’s no need to cook over a high heat.
Stick to a low to medium heat for best results! This prevents burnt food and stuck-on messes.
As you cook, use wooden, silicone, or nylon utensils to stir, blend, or flip your food. 
This will protect the enamel finish from being scratched during the cooking process.
Bring our Dutch oven to the table for family-style serving!
Just be sure to place your hot cookware over a trivet to protect your table or counter.

CLEANING ENAMELED CAST IRON
To clean our enameled cast iron is simply with warm soapy water.
Allow your enameled piece to cool, then use a gentle dish soap and reach for a scrub brush, scrub cloth, or pan scraper to easily remove food from the cooking surface.
Technically, Lodge enameled cast iron is dishwasher safe, but to best preserve your piece’s finish, we recommend hand washing your cookware.
After you clean, dry your cookware completely before storing.

1. Follow the steps above to clean your cookware.
2. Rub with a dampened cloth and Lodge Enamel Cleaner or another ceramic cleaner according to direction on the bottle.

FOR PERSISTENT STAINS:
1. Follow the steps above to clean and remove slight stains.
2. Soak the interior of the cookware for 2-3 hours with a mixture of 3 tablespoons of household bleach pet litre of water.
