I purchased this specifically to clean my Le Creuset enameled cast iron french oven. Although I take excellent care of it, after years of use there is some light brown discoloration / staining on the enamel. When I applied this cleaner, it did nothing. I scrubbed and scrubbed and there was no change. It didn't work on the interior (cream colored) enamel nor the exterior colored enamel. (If you do want a product that works I also bought Bar Keeper's Friend the same day, the Soft Cleanser. To my surprise, that worked perfectly!
Be aware that all Le Creuset pieces will develop a light brown patina on the interior after usage over time. If this bothers you, consider Staub. This cleaner will remove baked on food particles. It does work best if you rinse out your pot to remove large and loose food particles. Then dry the interior with a paper towel, then apply a small amount of cleaner and scrub with a nylon sponge. Rinse immediately. Also note, a little goes a long way and the bottle will last for an extended period of time.
I own approximately 12 Le Creuset pieces, and I must say after cooking stews, braising chicken, making my own spaghetti sauces, and browning meats, this cleaner is a MUST HAVE!
Here are the steps I take to ensuring optimal cleaning:
1. Clean your Le Creuset thoroughly (soap & h2o) 2. Dry completely 3. Using a sponge with 2 sides of coarseness add the cleaner to the textured side and rub WELL. 4. Add a little water, and once your Le Creuset is clean, rinse it out well. 5. I rinse my pot out a 2nd time w/soap & water to be safe
This works perfectly for me, and I hope this post was helpful :-D
