- Do not use the cookware in a microwave, toaster, conventional over, BBQ grill, broiler, 'salamander' food warmer or under heat lamps, to avoid electric sparks or fire.
- Monitor cookware during use to avoid potential injury to children or the risk of fire.
- Use care when using the glass lid. As with any glassware for cooking, the lid could break due to sudden temperature changes applied to it or due to impact if it is dropped or knocked against a hard object.
° DO NOT directly expose the glass lid to a burner or other heat source.
° Avoid sudden temperature changes to lid. DO NOT place it in water while still hot.
° DO NOT allow damp fabric to contact the lid when it is hot.
° Allow the lid to cool before washing.
° DO NOT apply sudden force to the lid, as it may shatter.
° Immediately stop using the lid if it cracks, chips or becomes badly scratched.
- DO NOT remove dried food from the lid with sharp or metal utensils as the lid may get damaged.
- Always use care when handling hot cookware to avoid potential injury. The lid and handles might become hot during prolonged cooking. Use oven mitts or pot holders when lifting the lid or the cookware.
- Never leave empty cookware over a burner that is hot or turned on. This may damage the cookware, or the stove.
- This cookware is for home use only. It is not intended for camping or commercial use.
Your brand-new cookware set requires pre-conditioning before first use. Follow these quick and easy steps to prolong its lifespan.
- Remove any labels/stickers from on each pan.
- Wash each pan with a mild dishwashing detergent, then rinse with warm water and dry completely with a paper towel.
- Warm the pan over a medium heat for 20-30 seconds, then remove from heat.
- Spread a light coat of vegetable oil or shortening over the entire inside surface of the pan.
- Place it back on the stovetop over medium heat.
- Watch carefully and remove from heat once it starts to smoke.
- Let it cool completely.
- Wipe away any excess residue with a lightly oiled paper towel.
- Cook at a moderate heat. The cookware is not designed for use at temperatures over 230°C.
- Although the handles on the pans and lids are 'cool-touch' and will not get hot during use, ensure that the heat source is suited to the bottom of the pan and flames will not burn along the handles or sides of the cookware.
- Do not overheat the pans while empty. Supervise the cooking process at all times.
- Use only plastic or wooden utensils, never metal. Do not cut food directly inside the pan.
- Allow the pan to cool before washing. Do not use abrasive or aggressive chemical products to clean.
- The cookware does not need to be washed every time it is used. Due to its non-stick surface, it can be cleaned without detergents by simply wiping the surface with a paper towel and hot water.
- Ensure that all grease or food deposits left on the pan have been removed when it is washed. Improper cleaning of the non-stick cookware can cause foods to stick the next time you use the pan.
- As with all aluminium cookware, avoid dropping the pans as they can warp from physical impact.
- To lengthen the cookware’s life, store with care and avoid banging or scratching the inner non-stick coating during storage.
