Enamel on Steel

Enamel On Steel Care & Use Le Creuset enamel on steel cookware combines the capability of stainless steel with the style and character of Le Creuset's colour palette. With a full range of stockpots and an array of teakettle designs, Le Creuset enamel on steel delivers all the high-heat performance of stainless steel without sacrificing the personality of your favorite colours.

Before First Use

Remove all packaging and labels. Wash stockpot in hot, soapy water. Rinse well and dry thoroughly.

Heating Tips

Le Creuset stockpots can be used with all heat sources, including induction (except microwave). For efficient and safe boiling, always use a burner similar in size to the base of the stockpot.

Tools To Use

We encourage you to use an oven mitt or silicone Cool Tool™ to avoid burns or injuries.

Cleaning and Care

Do not bang a stockpot down onto a stove’s surface or work surface. Repeated banging may damage the exterior enamel.

For efficient and safe boiling, always use a burner similar in size to the base of the stockpot.

Do not place a stockpot on a heat source without having liquid in the pot. Do not allow a stockpot to boil dry.

Never place a stockpot in the dishwasher. To clean, simply hand-wash the stockpot with hot, soapy water. Rinse well, and dry thoroughly. Do not submerge stockpots in water – the water may become trapped inside the vessel and can lead to rusting.
