Boiled dry Le Creuset Dutch Oven
Whoops. I boiled dry my cherished Dutch Oven.
I know I read with regular pots that even if you boil them dry it's okay to use. But I can't find anything online about if it's safe to use a previously boiled dry Le Creuset.
Well, you will soon find out, won't you? There is nothing toxic about using a previously boiled dry Le Creuset. However, when you boil dry an enameled cast iron, you run the risk of harming the enameled porcelain. If you are lucky, you will find nothing different. If you are unlucky you will soon find cracks and fractures on your cooking surface in the near future.
So, you just won't find out until you keep using it.
There is nothing toxic about overheating the enameled surface. It may crack and that's it. However, if it does crack in multiple places then many manufactures will claim it is no longer safe to use. I do not think it is horrible, but the argument is that if there are cracks, then you can have rusting/reactions occur underneath the porcelain on the bare cast iron. Unlike the real bare cast iron cookware, you will not able to remove the rust or season a fractured enameled cast iron Le Creuset. But then, I am not really sure it is a huge problem eating from a slightly rusted pan.
