The handles are designed to “stay-cool” during use;
however, they will eventually get hot during an extended
cooking session. Use of potholders is always recommended.
Keep handles from extending over the front edge of the
cooktop where they can be snagged by clothing or small
hands. Be sure to position handles away from other burners
to keep them from getting hot. REMEMBER: Put safety first!
DO NOT LEAVE AN EMPTY POT ON A HOT BURNER OR
ALLOW LIQUIDS TO BOIL DRY. Besides wasting energy, it
may impair the pan’s performance, discolor or damage it. DO
NOT STORE FOOD IN A PAN AFTER COOKING, ALWAYS
TRANSFER IT TO ANOTHER CONTAINER. Stovetop cookware
is not designed for oven use.
Before using your new cookware for the first time, remove
all labels, wash your pan in warm, soapy water, rinse and dry.
For best results, the non-stick surface should be "conditioned"
by wiping the INTERIOR of the pan with a light coating of
cooking oil. All non-stick surfaces benefit from periodic
"conditioning", especially after repeated automatic
FOR THE BEST FOOD RELEASE
Always start with a clean pan. Wash carefully and be sure
you’ve removed all traces of cooking oil and food before you
store your pan. Remove food from the refrigerator 10 minutes
before you intend to cook. Remember to pre-heat your pan.
When cooking do not add salt to your pan until the liquid is
at boiling point. Ecolution non-stick cookware is designed for
cooking without butter or oil. Butter or oil can be used over
low heat. Do not use non-stick sprays.
Only use nylon or wooden utensils for Ecolution non-stick
cookware. You should NEVER cut or chop in the pan with a
metal utensil. Slight surface marks and abrasions are normal and will not affect the performance of the non-stick coating.
Metal will cut into the non-stick and should be avoided.
COOKING ON THE STOVETOP
Best results are obtained by preheating your cookware for
2 to 3 minutes on low heat. Cookware over heat should never
be left unattended nor empty for an extended time. Ideal
cooking temperature is approx. 300 degrees Fahrenheit and
this is achieved in only a few minutes at low heat.
Continuous high heat may discolor and damage your
cookware. Select the right size burner to fit the bottom of
the pan and adjust gas flames so they do not extend up the
sides of the pan. Minor scratches will not harm the non-stick
performance or affect food cooking in the pan. The handles
of your cookware are constructed to minimize heat transfer.
Touch lightly to be sure the handles have not become hot.
Use oven mitts or pot holders if necessary.
Immediately after cooking, remove pan from heat and let
it cool on a heat-resistant surface. DO NOT POUR WATER
INTO A HOT PAN. This can cause grease to splatter and can
cause the bottom of the pan to warp. Always wash pan
thoroughly with soap and water after each use. Brief
cleaning with a dishcloth may not remove all food or grease
particles, which may settle into the non-stick finish. If not
removed, they may burn when the pan is reheated, causing
stains and reducing the non-stick quality. To remove
stubborn spots, use a non-abrasive plastic mesh pad. Use
only those products, which clearly state they are safe for
non-stick surfaces. Do not use steel wool, coarse scouring
pads or powders. Your cookware is dishwasher safe and may
be washed in an automatic dishwasher. A spotted white film
(minerals from water, buildup of detergents from the
automatic dishwasher) may form on the non-stick surface.
This film can be removed by rubbing the non-stick or
anodized surface with a sponge dipped in lemon juice or vinegar. Then wash, rinse, dry and recondition the non-stick
surface with cooking oil.
Stainless steel lids are dishwasher safe and can be cleaned
on normal or heavy-duty wash.
Use a non-abrasive cleaner for general cleaning; stain
removal and keeping the lids looking shiny as new. Do not
use metal scouring pads or abrasive cleaners. Do not use
chlorine bleach or ammonia-based cleaners on your
stainless steel lids.
