  • Avoid heating when empty or over heating while cooking.
  • Avoid violent physical shocks or rapid heat changes.
  • Air cool slowly before cleaning cookware.
  • When cooking is completed, remember to empty your cookware, as acids and sugary foods cause damage to metal surfaces.
  • Do not add salt to water until it has come to a complete boil, and stir until dissolved.
  • Wash utensils as soon as possible after each use.
  • Dry cookware quickly after washing, rather than letting them dry naturally, to avoid traces of calcium.

  • Do not use abrasive products or buffers.
