Care & Notes +-
Wash your enameled cast-iron cookware in hot, soapy water before its first use. For cleanup, hand washing is recommended. Avoid metal scouring pads or abrasive cleaners—a soft sponge and a good soak are your best friends here. Always let your pan cool for a few minutes before washing.
Nylon, silicone, or wooden utensils are best for your pan. You can use metal utensils, but they may damage the enamel coating if they repeatedly scrape or knock against the coating. Do not use an electric mixer inside the pan, and do not cut food inside the pan with a knife (this can damage the enamel as well).
