STAINLESS STEEL CERAMIC NONSTICK COOKWARE
BEFORE FIRST USE
Remove any tags or stickers. Rinse with warm, soapy water and towel dry.
OVEN AND STOVETOP INSTRUCTIONS
Stainless steel cookware is oven safe up to 500°F. Tempered glass lids are oven safe up to 350°F. Not suitable for use in the microwave. This item is safe for cooking on gas, electric, halogen, and induction stovetops.
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 handles, because of their length, may easily become too hot to handle. Use a potholder or an oven mitt when holding, lifting, or transferring cookware.
To protect the lifespan of the cookware’s ceramic nonstick coating, only use silicone, nylon, or wood utensils while cooking. Metal utensils, sharp tools, or electrical devices should not be used, as they could damage the ceramic nonstick coating.
CARE AND CLEANING
Martha Stewart stainless steel ceramic nonstick cookware is hand wash recommended. Pots and pans should have cooled down fully before washing. Do not submerge hot cookware in cold water. Burned grease or food residue can be removed by washing with warm water and mild detergent. For light cleaning, with a non-abrasive sponge, wash the stainless-steel cookware with hot, soapy water and a small amount of baking soda to combat grease. Towel dry thoroughly.
To remove tough, baked-on residue, mix 1 tablespoon liquid dish detergent, 3 tablespoons bleach, and 1 cup of water. Rub this mixture on the interior with a sponge or soft bristle brush, then rinse and towel dry immediately. Do not use abrasive cleaners, coarse scouring pads, or caustic cleaning solutions. After cleaning, recondition the interior by applying a light layer of cooking oil on to the surface. Place a protective sheet between your pots and pans to minimize wear and tear during storage. Drops onto hard surfaces may chip or break cookware.
TO MAINTAIN EXTERIOR
Overheating can cause brown or blue stains. Any type of food residue that remains after a pan or pot is clean will also cause the pot to discolor when the piece is reheated. Large amount of iron content in your water may cause your pot to appear rusty.
To maintain the luster of your cookware’s exterior, immerse the cookware in hot water. Mix a fine powder cleanser with water until it forms a smooth paste. Using a soft cloth, apply the paste evenly and lightly on the wet cookware. Rub the paste into the cookware in a circular motion from the center outward.
