I only used it on the bottom of the pot. I have no trouble with stains in the interior.

It used to drive my mom crazy that I didn't scrub the bottom of my pots and pans. When she'd visit, I'd always catch her scrubbing them and I thought she was a nut. I have to say that I'm still quite lazy about it, which is why it got into that condition. I am going to be more mindful of it from now on to prevent that from happening again.

Thank you for the recommendation, but I own that bio cleaner and it does nothing for me.  I suppose if I used it every time I cooked, when the grease and stains were still fresh, it might work. However, this is gunk that's been cooked onto this pan over the course of several years.

Believe me, the thought of messing it up after all that work is very disturbing!

@house_cat   That surprises me, because I first used it on some stainless steel pans that were black inside, and this product removed it, shoicked me, but it worked.

That's funny, because when DH suggested that I was nuts for spending so much time scrubbing, I told him that it was cheaper than therapy.

I must be doing something wrong. I was convinced that the demo they do on t.v. was a hoax.

For that kind of burned-on residue I use Dawn Power Dissolver or if the surface can take it (Le Creuset can), spray-on oven cleaner. But the Power Dissolver is made for the purpose. Minimal elbow grease.

 On a side note to this post.  I have a question for you.. I used to use Dawn Power Dissolver and then poof, it was gone from the place(s) I bought it. I haven't seen it again. Where do you buy it? I loved it. It worked great.,

 

@house_cat @  It was worth the time. It looks beautiful. I love my pieces of LeCreuset.

This took an hour?? Why so long? Looks like a 3 minute job to me.
