Why does my Le Creuset nonstick stick?

joywallMay 11, 2009

Why does my new Le Creuset skillet stick? I tried coating it with vegetable oil and putting it in the oven on low temp for a couple of hours and it still sticks! What am I doing wrong?

I'm pretty sure that Le Creuset does not manufacture any "non-stick" (i.e. PTFE) cookware.

If you have one of their enameled cast iron skillets, you will not be able to season it, it will never be non-stick, and you will always have to use a little fat (oil, butter, lard, etc.) when you cook.

Here is a link that might be useful: Is your skillet pictured here? It's NOT nonstick...
