How Do I Clean the Stains Off My Le Creuset Dutch Oven?

Q: My very favorite Le Creuset pan has gotten all scratched and stained.
You can see a dark ring where the warming burner has burnt on a stain. Is this all patina, or can I remove it somehow? I have stopped using it because it looks so messy, but I miss it and how well it cooks.

Can you tell me if it's possible to get these stains off my Le Creuset?

Anything that doesn't come off after a good scrubbing, though, is probably permanently baked into the enamel and as such is a patina on your pan. We wouldn't worry about this; it adds character and it is totally fine to continue using your pan with these stains in it.
