Likewise, is it OK to use chipped Le Creuset? Le Creuset Enamel Basics Enamel is tough but, at the end of the day, it’s a glass-like material that can chip. First of all: Do not use an enamel pot, pan, or dutch oven with a chip in the cooking area! The area with the chip could continue to chip, which means small, sharp pieces of enamel can get in your food.
Then, how do you cook with Le Creuset stoneware?
Freezer-to-oven! Le Creuset stoneware can also go from the freezer to the oven—the key is that it’s a cold oven.
