"Modern porcelain enamel can be chipped but only with a very hard blow that bends the base metal. Damaged porcelain enamel fixtures and appliances can be repaired, with do-it-yourself-kits, or by professionals who do the best, most lasting repairs. A special type of paint is used, as porcelain enamel itself must be baked on under very hot temperatures, so it will not be as durable as the original porcelain enamel surface.

Be Careful

With this in mind, most manufacturers recommend hand washing enameled cast iron cookware with soft sponges. Silicone or wooden tools are also recommended when cooking. If you follow these suggestions, your cookware's enamel coating should remain in good shape for years to come.

Le Creuset suggests: "Products are dishwasher safe, but handwashing is recommended." And: "Do not use metallic pads or harsh abrasive cleaning agents as these will damage the enamel." They also have a special cleaner available.

Just Use It

Many other sources suggest you're better off either buying a new pot, dutchoven, etc, or just using it as is. After all it is cast iron and bare cast iron cookware is used all the time. eHow.com suggests just that:

Buying new Le Creuset is pricey, but is using chipped or damaged enameled cast iron OK? What are your views?

  1. Hi, what about greater damage? I received in the post a pot whose handle was broken off. I thought such a thing was nearly impossible with cast iron, but the evidence is before me. Is it worth trying to get it fixed, which would mean welding it back on I guess? Thanks.

  2. Gina:

    If it’s Le Creuset, return it, they will replace the whole product, even if you bought it used in most cases. If its another brand of enameled cast iron, I’m not sure. If the handle is enameled, I don’t think you can fix it. If the pot is not enameled, I’m sure you could have it welded it back on. I hope you can work this out. If this is a new product I’m sure just about any company would replace it.

  3. Hi. During post hurricane Sandy we were cooking in one house. I brought some chicken stew in my 30 year old Le Creuset oven. To recycle the existing food for the next meal someone added drop biscuits. The temperature was too high and scorched the bottom. I have been soaking it in warm soapy water but it is still evident. Do you have any helpful tips?

  4. NO, I would not recommend using a damaged enamel pot. The enamel will continue to chip away and will contaminate your food. I tossed a pot of pork ragout for this reason … it has an odd *crunch* which it shouldn’t have had …. could not in good conscience feed that to anyone.

  5. I dropped the lid of my cobalt LeCrueset goose pot, (roughly 19″ by 13″). The iron is cracked from the edge 2/3 of the way to the knob. Even at your generous 75% discount, replacing it for so rarely used equipment is costly. Do you make a glass, off-color, or even a non-enameled cast iron lid I could purchase?
