Default Re: Crusty Le Crueset 24

I use Carbon Kleen to remove the organic matter from aluminum and enameled items. You can find it in some commercial kitchen warehouse stores. Don't leave it on for a long period of time though (enameled). It might dull the enamel.

Lye will take it off, but it WILL dull the enamel. You probably don't want to do that to a Le Creuset piece or any vintage piece.

In reference to your original question, it shouldn't matter about leaving it submerged. It is said that you can actually run enameled through a dishwasher (I wouldn't). Just make sure that there isn't any chips in the enamel.
