Remember to use low to medium heat. High heat may damage or discolor cookware and continual overheating or uncovered cooking may cause food to burn. While handles are designed to minimize heat transfer, potholders are recommended. To minimize sudden changes in temperature that can cause cookware to warp, always heat gradually and never pour cold liquid into a hot pan.
While dishwasher safe, hand washing is recommended to preserve the stainless steel shine. Use a sponge and warm, soapy water. Dry immediately. Remove burnt-on foods by soaking the pan for a few minutes. Never use steel wool or scouring powder as these may scratch the surface. If scrubbing is necessary, use a nylon pad with warm, soapy water or a non-abrasive silicate-based cleanser. Avoid chlorine cleansers, as they cause scratching.
Note: Any hard water or brown/blue spots from excessive heat will not affect the cookware's performance. For greasy stains, use a stainless steel cleanser with a damp cloth. For stubborn stains, combine equal parts cleanser, white vinegar and water to cover, heat to a boiling, turn off heat and let stand 30 minutes.
Undissovled salt may leave white spots or pits in stainless steel cookware. To prevent this from happening, only add salt after food begins to cook or after liquids begin to boil. Pitting does not affect the cookware's performance, but may mar its appearance.
Do not boil dry.
Use medium or lower heat settings.
Tools of the Trade Belgique Stainless Steel cookware construction uses a combination of metals that creates rapid and efficient dispersal of heat throughout the cookware; therefore, medium or lower heat settings are sufficient.
Match base of pan to stove burner size.
High heat or boil drying can cause base to separate or liquefy. If base of pan separates or liquefies, turn off heat. Do not remove pan from stovetop until it has cooled. Do not reuse pan.
Glass lid not intended for oven use.
Always use potholders whenever moving or lifting hot cookware.
Use of potholders required if product is placed in oven.
Oven safe to 350 deg, except glass lid.
