Heat over medium or low heat, slowly, to ensure even heat distribution and for the best cooking results. Remember: these babies get hot and stay that way. If you’re serving straight from Milo (and it’s too pretty not to!) remember to place the pot on a trivet or heat-resistant surface. You can use Milo in the oven up to 450 degrees. It will withstand hotter temperatures, but there might be some discoloration or warping of the knob. For best results, keep it to 450 or below.
How should I care for my Dutch Oven?
If you see little scratches and lines -- especially if you’ve been scraping with metal tools -- don’t be alarmed. This is normal, and won’t impair performance at all. In many cases, these marks can be completely removed by scrubbing with a little baking soda and water, or a cookware cleaner like Bar Keepers Friend.
