My new beautiful 5.5 qt staub cocotte has what appears to be burned on spots I cannot remove. See the photo. This happened after I cooked something on it with coconut oil. I was stupidly trying to cook popcorn in it and not used to this pot I probably left it o the heat long after I should have.
I've tried cleaning it following the instructions in the book, including the boiling water/baking soda method. The spots will not budge when I use a 3M heavy duty scouring pad (not metal).
Did I just ruin my beautiful new pot? Any ideas about how to remove them?
