Step 1

Set your Le Creuset grill pan on a hot pad or pot holder and allow it to cool completely prior to washing.

Step 2

Tackle difficult food stains on your Le Creuset grill pan by soaking it before washing. Cover your grill pan with warm water only, no soap, and allow the grill pan to remain submerged in the water for 15 minutes to loosen stuck-on food particles. Remove your Le Creuset grill pan from the water.

Step 3

Pour 1 tsp. mild hand dish-washing detergent in your kitchen sink and fill the sink with hot water. Place your Le Creuset grill pan in the soapy solution and scrub gently with a nylon dish scrubber.


Step 4

Hand dry your Le Creuset cast iron grill pan with a dish towel to prevent rust.

Run plain, warm water over your Le Creuset grill pan to rinse the soapy solution away.

Step 5

Dry your grill pan completely with a clean dish towel.


Use the dishwasher to wash your Le Creuset grill pan only on occasion as excessive use of the dishwasher can dull the enamel surface and affect your grill pan's performance.


Cast iron can rust if left to drip dry or stored away while still damp. Always dry your Le Creuset enameled cast iron grill pan after washing.
