Default Re: First Dutch Oven

Since the rust is minimal, I would opt instead for a 50/50 vinegar/water bath, in a wide, shallow container that you can float the lid in. No risk to the enamel that way.

See: http://www.castironcollector.com/cleaning.php#vinegar

Seasoning the top of the lid just enough to polymerize one thin coat of oil is all that's necessary; don't do the 500 step some do, just to make sure you don't compromise the enamel.
