Removing white spots

Enameled cast iron pots and pans can sometimes develop white spots, which are often caused by cooking with starchy ingredients, like beans, or mineral deposits from water. If your pot or pan develops white spots, follow the steps below to remove them.

Cleaning steps:

1. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the white spots.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar and boil, uncovered, for about 10 minutes on medium heat.

3. Once cooled, gently scrub the pot with mild dish soap and a soft sponge, repeating as necessary until clean.

Removing brown spots

Cooking without removing the white spots may cause them to scorch or burn and become brown. If your pot develops brown spots, follow the steps below to remove them.

Cleaning steps:

1. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the brown spots.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and boil, uncovered, for about 10 minutes on medium heat.

3. Once cooled, gently scrub the pot with mild dish soap and a soft sponge, repeating as necessary until clean.

Note

  • Do not use abrasive cleaning agents and/or scrubbing pads (metal brushes, scouring pads, etc.) to clean the pot, as these may damage the enamel coating.
