  • Sweet! I have always used an oxy-clean soak but that doesn't seem to be cutting it anymore. I think the enamel has worn off mine but will try this and report back.

    i didnt soak the whole pot, just left it stove top with the cover on, added more bleach half way thru and put the cover back on. almost think some plastic wrap of the top might keep the chlorine levels higher so that it doesnt dissipate
  • Those pots are a little too expensive to be using in an Egg.  Lodge pots are cheaper and do just as good a job,

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    but the lodge wont cook as nice on my simmer plate indoors
    :Di do have a knockoff at camp that works just as well on the egg but at home why buy a second pot if i already have this one that works well enough on the egg.

    Bar Keeper's Friend works too. I also have the Le Crueset CI cleaner. It pulls the polymerized oil on the bottom of the pot right off. I have seen it get mixed reviews, but it works well for me. Ingredients say that it contains a "weak acid" which I am guessing is oxalic acid; just like BKF. They buffer it up from a pH of 1.4. I make a slurry with the BKF and let it sit for a minute. I wipe and it's as good as new.

    A little work(~2 minutes) but messing with bleach while drinking means white spots on my clothes or this:

  • This week I made Cow Lick Chili.  7 qt LeCreuset was caked with smoke.  I used a Mr Clean Magic eraser and it worked Great!!!  Clean in no time at all.

    I use BKF, too. If you keep on top of it, you're good to go.

    Easy off oven cleaner. Spray and let sit 5 minutes and rinse.
