Multi-Layer, Stainless Steel Use & Care Manual
Before using, wash in hot soapy water;
rinse and dry thoroughly.
We recommend seasoning the pan. Heat your
cookware with two tablespoons of cooking oil for
1 to 2 minutes at medium heat. Do NOT allow
the oil to overheat, change color or begin to
smoke. Empty the pan and repeat the washing
process with hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry
When frying, sauteing or searing, preheat
on low heat for 1 to 2 minutes and then add
food. This will also help minimize sticking.
When using oil, butter, or margarine add to a
cold pot before pre-heating.
For optimal cooking performance, low to medium
heat settings are recommended. A high heat
setting would be used for boiling.
For best results, cook on a burner that is close to
the diameter of the pan you have selected. When
cooking on gas, adjust flame so it does not flare
up on the sides of the pan.
It is best to add salt after food has started
cooking. This will help prevent small white dots
or pits from forming on your cookware surface, as
is the case for any stainless steel cookware
Do not leave an empty pan on a hot burner or
allow a pan to boil dry.
Do not allow handles to extend over a hot
burner. Make sure they do not extend past
the edge of the cooking surface.
Although the long handles are designed to stay
cool to the touch, using a pot holder is a safe
idea. ALWAYS use pot holders when removing
lids, holding side handles, and removing pans
from a hot oven.
Wash in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry
immediately to prevent water spots.
(You may wash in the dishwasher, but hand
washing is recommended.)
Do NOT use steel wool. Nylon scrubbing pads
are safe to use.
Do NOT use oven cleaner or any cleaner
that is harsh or contains chlorine bleach.
Overheating can cause brown or blue stains.
Food films not removed will cause discoloration
on the pot when reheated. To remove
discoloration from your cookware, use one part
vinegar to one part water. Set aside for about 5
minutes and rinse accordingly
Large amounts of iron content in water may cause
pot to appear rusty.
