The iconic Le Creuset Dutch oven is indispensable in the kitchens of home cooks and professional chefs alike. Long recognized for its strength and durability cast iron is the prime material for slow-cooking braising and roasting thanks to its ability to maintain even and consistent heat. The enameled Dutch oven needs no seasoning and it’s suitable for both stove-top and oven use. Cleaning and Care Always cool a hot pan for a few minutes before washing. Do not plunge a hot pan into cold water. While Le Creuset’s enamel is designed to be the most durable on the market thermal shock may still occur resulting in cracking or loss of enamel. If there are food residues fill the pan with warm water and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes before washing. A brush can be useful for removing small food deposits or for cleaning between the ribs on grills. Do not use scourers or abrasive cleaners on the cooking surface. Nylon or soft abrasive pads or brushes can be used to remove stubborn residues.
