Care & Use

Cooking with your GameDay Enameled Cast Iron

  • Thoroughly hand wash your GameDay Cookware prior to its first use.
  • You can use GameDay’s enameled cast iron on gas, electric, ceramic and induction cooktops. For glass cooktops, please follow your manufacturer’s directions for using iron pots. Please do not use on grills, over a campfire, or in a microwave oven.
  • Your GameDay Cookware is oven safe to 350°F.
  • To avoid scratching the enamel surface use only wooden, silicon or nylon utensils.
  • The superior heat-retention qualities of cast iron provide the best results on low to medium heat when cooking.
  • Pre-heat your cookware gradually. Do not heat an empty Dutch oven. Reserve the use of high heat for boiling water or recipes with a large amount of liquid.
  • The enamel coating on your GameDay Dutch oven is not a traditional non-stick surface. For best results and easier cleaning, use cooking spray or oil while cooking.
  • Caution: Lift the lid in a way to protect your face and body from built-up steam when opening the lid on a cooking pot. Always protect your hands from hot cookware and handles. Use a trivet or hot pad to protect your countertop, table or other unprotected surfaces from your hot cookware.

Caring for your GameDay Enameled Cast Iron

  • Always allow your cast iron cookware to cool gradually after use.
  • To protect the finish, hand wash with warm soapy water and dry immediately. If required, use a non-metal scrubbing pad for hard-to-remove food residue.
  • To preserve your GameDay Cookware’s original appearance avoid harsh, abrasive, or acid-based (citrus) cleaners or soaps.
  • Depending on your cooking practices and food choices, some permanent staining may occur with enameled cookware and it will not affect your cookware’s performance.
  • To avoid scratching and chipping always lift your cookware to move it and do not stack enameled cookware during storage.
