Cuisine::pro Diamond 9 Non-stick Cookware Care Instructions
To help achieve the best results from non-stick cookware, we recommend pre-conditioning before the first use by simply applying a light coating of cooking oil using a paper towel or cloth, then wipe around the total interior surface of the cookware. Wipe off any excess oil.
With non-stick cookware, follow the below cooking instructions to get the most out of it:
- To ensure a longer life of your non-stick cookware, it is recommended to use only wooden or nylon utensils.
- DO NOT use spray oils. These have an ultra thin layer of oil that will burn off at low temperatures and can leave a sticky residue that reduces the non-stick properties of your cookware.
- With use, slight surface marks, abrasions and discolouration are normal and will not affect the non-stick performance of the surface This is not covered by the guarantee.
- When cooking, use low to medium heat to ensure the most efficient performance of your cookware. Lower temperatures will also assist in retaining your food's natural moisture and flavours.
- High heat should only be used for searing over very short periods of time.
- Always use a heat source smaller than the diameter of the cookware base.
- Never cut food in the pan interior.
- Avoid leaving your cookware on a burner or element unattended. Never leave an empty cookware item on a hot burner or element.
- Non-stick pans should not be used under a grill, as this will damage the non-stick surface.
- If using ceramic, glass or induction cooktops, take care not to slide or drag the cookware over the hobs. Cuisine::pro and Stevens will not be responsible for any damage to cooktops.
- Handles and knobs can get hot in use, even "stay cool" ones. While the handles are designed to minimise heat transfer, extended cooking times will still heat them up as stainless steel is a heat conductor. Use an oven glove or pot holder when removing from the oven or cooktop.
After cooking, DO NOT immerse your hot pan in cold water as this may result in irreversible warping. Always let the pan cool to room temperature before cleaning.
Cookware is dishwasher safe, however, it is recommended to wash in warm soapy water using a soft sponge or soft brush. Never scrub your cookware with steel wool or any harsh abrasive cleaners. If you do wash in dishwasher, wash on a mild cycle with mild detergent. Repeated dishwasher cleaning may cause oxidation to the rivet and base areas over time, however this will not affect the performance of the cookware.
To help preserve the non-stick surface and ensure the best performance from your cookware, we recommend periodically applying a few drops of cooking oil into the interior surface of the pan, especially after cleaning in a dishwasher.
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions. Check the box of your cookware for any specific cookware restrictions.
