How to Clean the Outside of an Enamel-coated Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Reader question: Elizabeth, the outside of my Dutch Oven is getting black, with much cooking use.  Is there anything that will take this off.  I am still enjoying cooking this way.  I don’t do it all the time, but a lot. ~ Joanne E., DenverLeCreusetCleaner

Hi Joanne, Nice to hear from you and to learn that you are still enjoying GOPMs!

Le Creuset makes a cast iron cleaning solution that you can use to scrub your pot clean. There are retail Le Creuset stores (in Cherry Creek in Denver) and outlet stores that both should carry it, or you  get it online through Amazon.

Be sure to wear gloves when you use it because this is toxic. I usually make my husband do this chore as it takes a bit of scrubbing effort.

Happy cooking!  ~Elizabeth
