How to Care for Enamel Cookware

How to Care for Enamel Cookware | Chef South Africa Blog

Caring for enamel cookware is easy if you follow basic care instructions. Enamel-coated cast iron cookware is extremely durable, with a coating that protects the cookware against rust. Cast iron has a high resistance to heat. It is also tough, making it an ideal choice for cookware. Unlike oil-cured pots and dishes, enamel-coated dishes are non-absorbent and non-stick. They can be easily washed – even in the dishwasher. To help you get many years of enjoyment from your Chef enamel cookware, we’ve put together some tips on caring for your cookware.

Caring for Enamel Cookware

Keep your enamel cookware in top condition with these simple tips.

Cleaning

Thanks to its enamel coating, this cookware is very easy to clean. Oil-cured pots can only be washed by hand, after which they need to be seasoned. Enamel pots and pans are non-stick, making them easy to clean in the sink with hot soapy water. You can also wash your cookware in the dishwasher, as there is no risk of the protective layer of oil being stripped off the pots. Ideally, it is best to clean your cookware soon after it’s been used. Although it is non-stick, letting pots, pans and dishes sit too long can allow food particles to dry out, making it harder to clean.

Cooking

When cooking, always choose utensils that will not damage the enamel surface. Using metal spatulas and stirring spoons will slowly start to create tiny cracks and scrapes. These may not be visible at first. Over time, these cracks start to absorb food particles and odours, affecting the taste of your food. You will also reduce the lifespan of your cookware. Use silicone or wooden utensils instead.

Storage

Whether you use oil-cured or enamel pots and pans, it is always important to store your cookware properly. One of the quickest ways to risk wear and tear is to stack your cookware, with lids placed right-side-up. This may seem like a good way to save space in your cupboards. Instead of stacking, store pots and pans next to each other. Store your cookware somewhere cool and dry, away from steam.
