CAST ALUMINUM

Basic Use & Care

COOKING

1-2

  • ALWAYS USE WOODEN OR PLASTIC UTENSILS INSTEAD OF METAL UTENSILS.
  • COOK ON MEDIUM OR LOW HEAT.
  • ONLY MINIMAL PREHEATING IS REQUIRED.
  • WE SUGGEST USING A LITTLE BIT OF OIL OR BUTTER TO PRESERVE THE NONSTICK SURFACE.
  • NOT DESIGNED FOR MICROWAVE USE.
  • TREAT GLASS LIDS WITH CARE BY PREVENTING THERMAL SHOCK AND CONTACT WITH A DIRECT FLAME.

CLEANING

1-3

  • HAND WASH RECOMMENDED.
  • Do not use steel wool or nylon scrubbing pads. Use a soft sponge or cloth and alkaline-free, mild detergents for best results.
  • Cookware is dishwasher-safe but hand washing is preferred to preserve the cookware’s nonstick performance. When used in the dishwasher, the frequent exposure to hard water and alkaline detergents will gradually break down the nonstick properties of the coating and deteriorate its effectiveness faster than normal.

STORAGE

1-4

  • ALWAYS USE A PAN PROTECTOR OR TOWEL BETWEEN COOKWARE WHEN NESTING.
  • To prevent damage to countertops, wooden surfaces, or the cookware itself, lift cookware in lieu of sliding it across surfaces.

CERAMIC STOVETOP

Basic Use & Care

COOKING

2-1

  • SAFE TO MOVE FROM REFRIGERATOR TO THE MICROWAVE OR OVEN
  • LET REFRIGERATED INGREDIENTS RETURN TO ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE ADDING TO THE PAN FOR CONSISTENT AND EVEN COOKING.
  • To avoid dry spots from forming, do not leave empty cookware on a burner for an extended period of time. When dry spots become hotter, they will eventually cause pitting to the glaze.
  • Use liquids (butter, oil, or stock) and stir food occasionally to prevent dry spots.
  • For best results, stovetop flame should not extend beyond cookware base.
  • Allow frozen food to thaw fully before transferring cookware to heat sources.
  • Oil and butter is recommended for easy food release. Nonstick sprays tend to leave residues that impede cookware performance.
