Using Your Cookware
No seasoning is required before use. The cast iron cookware has a porcelain enamel coating that does not require seasoning. Before use, hand wash with hot, soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. No further preparation is needed. Ideal for use on all types of cooktop surfaces, including induction and outdoor grilling. Always lift the cast iron cookware when moving it from any type of cooktop surface. Sliding the cookware may damage the cooktop or base of the pan. For best results, use low to medium heat on cooktop or outdoor grill. Allow the pan to heat gradually for even and efficient cooking. Use a high temperature when searing or boiling.
Cast iron cookware is not ideal for dry cooking. Before heating, select a liquid, oil, fat, or butter to cover at a minimum the base of the pan. Match the pan base size with the cooktop burner for cooking efficiency. Do not allow gas flame to extend up the side of the pan. Cast iron cookware is oven safe to 500 degree Fahrenheit and is broiler safe. Use potholders or oven mitts when handling hot cookware. Do not submerge a hot cast iron pan into cold water or place a cold pan onto a hot burner. This may cause thermal shock, resulting in cracking or loss of enamel. When cooking, use wood, plastic or heat-resistant nylon tools to avoid scratching the porcelain enamel coating. Do not cut inside the cast iron cookware. Use a hot pad or trivet before placing the hot cast iron cookware on an unprotected surface.

The lid is pretty heavy meaning, a good seal to keep the moisture in when cooking savory dishes and it also is ridged for cooking on while the fat drips on the no stick surface. Of course, the lid has to be flipped over to cook that way but I have not cooked anything on the outside of the lid yet.
I use a silicon spatula and plastic along with wooden utensils to stir and scrape the inside while browning and cooking food to keep the enamel finish scratch and chip free for hassle free cooking.
You can put this in a dishwasher as long as you don't use lemon infused dishwasher detergent to clean. This might dull the finish because of the lemon additives. Also stay away from steel wool if you have any if any, stuck food.
Not recommend to use for high temperature frying or sauteing because the enamel could crack and lose it's non-stick abilities. In the oven I would not go higher than 450F.
