Dutch oven help

Hey. After reading the many great dutch oven ideas on here had to get one. Anyway my first try at it was apple crisp. Was really good but had one issue. I burnt one spot pretty good. Must of had a hot spot cause didnt burn anywhere else just about a 3 inch round spot. Doesn't seem to want to scrub off. I dont want to use soap on it so i was wonder what you guys do when this happens?

I always line with foil when I make sticky dessert in the DO. The best way to clean is with boiling or very hot water. You may have to soak it a bit to get the burnt spot off. I use a plastic scraper. Also, you can use salt as a scouring powder.

Not really wanting to admit I have made a mistake or two over the years. But we have done lots of things to clean out a bad Dutch oven. Primary thing I try to use is a green scotch bright pad, the plastic scrapper thingy, cooked it out (aka hot coals in the oven), even have used sand. Most of the time we try to boil out the error, and use a scrubby.

Sugary things easily burn if you are not careful. To help eliminate hot spots, and more consistent cooking, we rotate the Dutch oven every 10-15 minutes in one direction by 90 degrees, and rotate the lid the other direction by 90 degrees. In general this helps minimize hot/cold zones. Depending on what we are cooking, and the amount of cooking time we modify the rotation timing as needed.

Try some salt in it with no water. Use a green scotch bright pad and rub hard on the bottom. Salt will clean a lot of the pores of the iron out.
