Pots and pans made of materials, such as cast iron or aluminum that have had porcelain enamel applied as a coating. It prevents them from corroding or reacting with the food being cooked in them. A pan coated with porcelain should not be used for sautéing or frying but will work as a saucepan or roaster.
To care for porcelain enamel cookware, wash with hot soapy water. A nylon scouring pad, nylon scraper, or nonabrasive cleaner can also be used to help remove stuck on food. Porcelain enamel can be cleaned occasionally in the dishwasher unless it has a non-stick interior surface, but dishwasher use should be limited to avoid dulling the enamel surface.
