BEFORE FIRST USE
Remove any stickers or tags. Rinse with warm soapy water and towel dry completely.
STOVETOP USE AND OVEN INSTRUCTIONS
This cookware is oven safe up to 300°F. However, if the cookware has wood, silicone, plastic, and Bakelite handles, do not put them in the oven. Do not place cookware in the microwave. This item is safe for cooking on gas, electric, halogen, and induction stovetops. Select a burner that closely matches the size of the bottom of the pan to ensure that the flames do not burn the sides of the cookware.
Always use proper safety procedures when preparing food on the stovetop or in the oven. Long cooking durations or very high temperatures may cause the handles to become too hot. Shorter and helper handles, because of their length, may easily become too hot to handle. Use potholder or oven mitts when handling hot cookware.
UTENSIL USE PRECAUTIONS
To protect the lifespan of the cookware’s nonstick coating, only use silicone, plastic or wood utensils while cooking or cleaning the unit. Metal utensils, sharp tools or electric devices should not be used, as they could damage the nonstick coating.
CARE AND CLEANING
This cookware is dishwasher safe. We recommended using gentle dishwashing detergents without bleach or citrus additives.
However, hand washing is recommended. Allow cookware to cool before being washed. Do not submerge hot cookware in cold water. Burned grease or food residue can usually be removed by washing with warm water and a mild detergent. Tougher, baked-on residue can be removed by cleaning with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid dish detergent, 3 tablespoons bleach and 1 cup of water. Rub this mixture into the surface with a sponge or a soft-bristled brush. Rinse well and towel dry immediately. Do not use abrasive cleaners, coarse scouring pads, or caustic cleaning solutions. After cleaning, recondition the interior by wiping a light layer of cooking oil onto the surface. Place a protective sheet between your pots and pans to minimize wear and tear during storage. Do not drop cookware onto hard surfaces to prevent breakage and damage.
COOKWARE USE INSTRUCTIONS
Gradually increase the pan’s temperature to the desired heat setting prior to applying butter or oil. Always allow your cookware to cool down before immersing it in water. Do not overheat empty cookware. Do not boil dry. When serving, place hot cookware on a heat-resistant surface such as a trivet.
