    I've tried the vinegar / baking soda method to no avail.
    If it's LeCreuset then DON'T use anything abrasive, wire wool, steel scrubbers, Bar Keepers Friend, metal tools etc, you will permanently damage the enamel IMHO, LeCreuset enamel is relatively soft and easy to damage.
    I did find this method on an American site It got far more votes than any other.
    Add about 1/2 inch of Hydrogen Peroxide to the pot. Add about 1-2 tsp of baking soda.
    Heat until it starts to bubble up. It needs the heat to start the reaction. Simmer about 10 mins..and brush with a green scrub brush. Repeat as needed.
    It gets into the bond of the carbon and lifts it of the pan. It will bubble and stink, so turn on your vent. But it won't harm the enamel.
    I'm going to try it as soon as I can get some Hydrogen Peroxide.
