- Use & Care
Before First Use
- Remove all labels and hang tags. Wash cookware with a mild dish soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry immediately with a so! dishtowel, or you may place cookware in the dishwasher.
- Always use a low-medium heat setting. To boil water, a medium-high heat setting is sufficient. The interior enameled surfaces must be treated and are not suitable for dry cooking: select either oil, butter or a cooking spray to completely cover the stockpot's inside base before heating begins. Always use potholders to grip side handles or cover knobs, as they will become hot. Never leave pans unattended at any time while cooking. Never leave an empty pan over a hot burner; doing so could ruin the cookware and cause damage to the stovetop.
- Enamel on steel stockpots and covers are oven safe to 350°F. Caution should be used when handling any cookware handles. Always use potholders to grip side handles or cover knobs, as they will become hot.
- To protect and preserve the surface of the stockpot, use only wooden, plastic or heat resistant nylon kitchen tools to avoid scratching the enamel interior. We do not recommend using metal utensils, as they may scratch the stockpot's surface.
- Allow your stockpot to cool slightly after each use, then fill pan with warm water and a liquid dish detergent; let soak. Do not fill a hot pan with cold water or plunge into cold water because thermal shock damage to enamel may occur. Use a sponge or a soft cloth to remove any remaining food particles. Do not use steel wool or other metal pads that make coarse scratches. Rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. If preferred, cookware may be cleaned in the dishwasher. Scrub pan edges gently to clean if there is any discoloration or residue. Food residue or buildup on your cookware can easily be removed with a non-abrasive cleanser, or a little warm vinegar may be used. Cover knobs may become loose over a period of time. We recommend checking them occasionally and tightening knobs as needed.
- Do not store stockpots when they are still damp and always store carefully in a dry cupboard area. Avoid stacking and overcrowding to prevent scratching and chipping of enamel surface.
