Clean Enamelled Cookware By Boiling

Find it difficult to get enamelled cast-iron cookware clean? Try bringing water to a gentle boil, adding one tablespoon of laundry detergent, and allowing that to boil for six minutes.

You should now be able to rinse it clean with warm water and a sponge. Culinary weblog Chow notes that you'll want to first gently scrub off any food debris before using this method.

    laundry detergent is also great on charcoaled metal saucepans.

    Dish liquid will do the same, just simmer on low heat to loosen the sticky bits.. If you use laundry liquid that works better, then it probably also contains enzymes that may damage the enamel leaving it open to staining in future.

    For burnt sugars, slowly heat cooking oil until the sugars come away (usually in chunks). This may take quite some time, so keep watch over it and don't let it get too hot or you risk a fire.
