Taking care of your roasting dishes
To help your roasting dishes last many years of use there are a few simple steps to follow:
1. Avoid using heavy-duty and toxic cleaning products
We love using natural cleaning products on our enamelware, such as lemon and salt. This not only protects your enamelware but also protects the environment as it reduces the amount of toxic chemicals entering the waterways.
2. Don’t use in the microwave
As enamelware has a steel core it should never be used in the microwave.
3. Use gentle cleaning tools
To remove tough stains, try and use a wooden cleaning tool or the back of a wooden spoon. The flat edge will help stains come off easier and avoid scratches on the enamel that can occur when using metal cleaning tools.
4. Spray with oil before cooking
A light mist of oil on your roasting dishes before cooking helps reduce sticking and makes cleaning up afterwards a lot easier.
5. Adjust the heat of your enamelware carefully
When roasting things in your enamelware try and warm the pans gradually and cool them down slowly. For example, allow your pan to sit in the oven after use and let it cool down slowly instead of running it under cold water immediately. This helps to prevent your enamel kitchenware from warping.
