To avoid chips and cracked enamel, it’s best not to use your dishwasher or any metal utensils. Only use wooden, silicone or plastic utensils.
It is important to let the cookware cool before cleaning. Enameled cookware does not like sudden changes in temperature as rapid expansion can lead to damage. Once cookware has cooled use warm to hot soapy water with a soft sponge or cloth to wipe clean, rinse with warm water then dry with a soft cloth. Avoid using super abrasive scouring pads, harsh and abrasive cleaners as they may damage the enamel surface. If you do happen to have stubborn sticky foods, fill the cookware with hot soapy water and let it soak for an hour then give it a second cleaning.
If your Enameled cookware becomes discolored don’t fret! Here are a few tips to try.
Baking soda is the first go to method. Heat up some water and add a couple tablespoons of baking soda, then let it sit for an hour. If there is still some staining then make a thick paste with baking soda and water (add coarse salt if extra abrasion is needed) then apply to the stained surface. Let it sit for an hour then clean, rinse and dry.
Mix 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar with 1 pint of water, pour it into the pot and let it soak for a couple hours, then give it another cleaning. If the stain is being a stubborn, then you could boil some water with vinegar or lemon juice to help loosen stains or another method is to cover the area with coarse salt, then squeeze half a lemon directly onto the salt, let that sit for a few hours then clean with soapy warm water, rinse and dry.
