Cooking And Caring For Your Lodge Enameled Cast Iron
1. Allow cookware to cool.
2. Although dishwasher safe, hand washing with warm soapy water and a nylon Scrub Brush is recommended to preserve the cookware’s original appearance. Citrus juices and citrus-based cleaners (including some dishwasher detergents) should not be used, as they can dull the exterior gloss.
3. If necessary, use nylon pads or scrapers to remove food residue; metal pads or utensils will scratch or chip porcelain.
4. Slight stains can be removed by rubbing with dampened cloth and Lodge Enamel Cleaner or other ceramic cleaner according to directions on bottle.
5. Dry cookware thoroughly before storing. Do not stack cookware.

UPDATE: I did contact Lodge on the above issue. After a few clarifying emails and pictures, they agreed to ship me a replacement. At this point, I'm really impressed the way they are standing behind their product. I decided to change my rating from 1 to 4 stars.
UPDATE 2: I received the new Lodge cookware as noted above. After unpacking, I found two small areas that were ruff to the touch. I lightly rubbed one with my finger and the top coating fell off. The other area seems stable. So now I have two pieces with the same type of defect. I contacted Lodge again, but have not heard anything more from them. I've decided to give up on the issue. Rating changed back to 1 star.
This is an update. This pan lost it's enamel shortly after the first month of use. It became impossible to cook anything , except water without it sticking. Terrible investment. Apparently not a flawed item, as I bought a smaller size and the same thing happened. Buyer beware!

That all being said, while this is not on par with Le Creuset or FE, it is very good quality enamelled cast iron. On the past weekend I made a large pot of beef stew in this Dutch Oven and it may have been the best I have made in years. The heat retention of cast iron simply cannot be beat. Once up to temperature on the stove top I moved it into the oven at 275° F and let it cook away for two hours. At the end of that time, everything was perfectly cooked and the heavy, well sealing cover had kept evaporation to a minimum.
Cleanup was quick and easy once everything had cooled down and been transferred out to containers. A squirt of dish soap and a quick wipe down with a soft sponge and everything was just like new.
The only minor issue I have is that the base of the pot is quite small, only about 8.5", which is small for such a large pot. This makes it necessary to brown whatever you are cooking in multiple batches, probably more than it would take in a pot with a wider base. But while that can be looked at as a disadvantage, it also makes the pot usable on smaller burners as well as on full size burners. This can be useful when I make a large pot of spaghetti sauce for instance, as I can get my tomatoes going in this pot on a smaller burner while using my large burner to brown my ground beef. I do not see this really being an issue in the long run.
I love the light coloured interior of the pot which makes it easy to see if something starts to burn when browning meat or vegetables so you can turn the heat down and easy to see that you have gotten that last bit of browned goodness when deglazing with wine or broth.
As usual with enamelled cast iron, do not use metal utensils as they will scratch the finish. Also do not bang even wooden utensils on the top edge of the pot to clean them off as this will eventually lead to chipping of the enamel. These are common mistakes people make when they get their first enamelled cast iron and it can lead to them never getting the full pleasure of cooking with such great cookware.
One last thing... this pot is heavy. The cover alone weighs more than most stainless or aluminum cookware you will ever use, probably more than an aluminum pot when it is full in some cases! So don't go buying this as a gift for someone unless you know they can handle the weight, or even for yourself for that matter. But if you can handle it, you won't regret your purchase. Is it as good as a Dutch Oven from Le Creuset? Quality wise, no, of course not. But the food you cook in it will taste just as good and you will have hundreds of dollars left in your pocket to buy food to cook in this wonderful pot.
Now if only someone could explain to me why this great pot costs so much more if you want to buy it in other colours? That is one thing I cannot understand. 😋
I'm wondering whether this was on sale as a second or if it was last year's color or just an unpopular color. Or maybe just a fluke that I got one that should not have passed inspection.
