metal marks on enamel surface
Hi there. Have a bit of a problem. Was at a friends house for supper the other nite, and she made this wonderful dish, involving cheese, in her very lovely kitchenaid cast iron, porcelain enamel dutch oven. Without thinking, and she never said anything when she saw me do this, I proceeded to scrape the yummy burnt cheese off the sides of the pot...ON THE ENAMEL. Aaaahhhh. I don't own any enamel covered cookware, so didn't know that this is a big no no. I left gray tine marks from my fork on the inside of her pan. I didn't scratch it, as I wasn't digging on there like a barbarian, but just enough to leave those blasted gray lines in there.
Is there a way to safely remove those marks or are they on there for good, and I owe her a new pot? I feel sick to my stomach doing this to her new pot. Is there help for me out there? Thanks for any input.
