The handle is pristine and the interior is shiny and stain free. I've NEVER used metal utensils on this pan and it has never been heated to extremely high temps Le Creuset pans do not need to be heated beyond a medium cooking temp... I've always allowed the pan to cool completely before washing (avoiding thermal shock) and I've always used gentle non-toxic cleaners to scrub Bon Ami, etc. The iconic Le Creuset Dutch oven is indispensable in the kitchens of home cooks and professional chefs alike. Expertly crafted from enameled cast iron, the everyday versatility of the Dutch oven makes it ideal for everything from slow-cooking and braising to roasting, baking, frying and more.The oval shape is particularly suited for larger cuts of meat, whole chickens and for baking oval-shaped loaves of bread. Enameled cast iron delivers superior heat distribution and retention. Ready to use, requires no seasoning. The classic black phenolic is oven-safe to 3 75 °F. Easy-to-clean and durable enamel resists dulling, staining, chipping and cracking. Light colored smooth interior enamel allows easy monitoring of cooking progress.
Tight-fitting lids are specially designed to circulate steam and return moisture back to the food. Ergonomic knobs and handles are designed for easy lifting. Lightest weight cast iron by quart on the market. Metal utensils can be used BUT I would not recommend as they can permanently scratch and discolor the light interior. I suggest using wood, nylon, or silicone coated tools.
