All cookware with a stainless steel inside can be washed in a dishwasher. Cookware with a non-stick coating inside should always be washed by hand since dishwasher detergent can damage the surface.
Steel wool or abrasive sponges should never be used to clean the cookware since they can damage the surface.
When cooking food in a pot with stainless steel inside, always add salt to the water after the water has been brought to the boil. Adding salt to cold water can cause salt stains that will eventually cause corrosion.
The base of a cookware is slightly concave when cold, but expands to flatten out when heated. Because of this, you should always leave the cookware to cool off before cleaning it. This allows the base to resume its shape and helps to prevent it from becoming uneven with use. It is also important that you never let the cookware boil dry, because the base then becomes skew.
If the cookware has a non-stick coating, overheating might also cause it to lose its non-stick properties. If the cookware has a non-stick coating it means that you can cook food in little or no fat or oil at all. It also makes the cookware easier to clean since the coating prevents food from burning and sticking to the surface. However, the coating is sensitive to scratches which is why you should only use wooden or plastic utensils without sharp edges in the cookware. We do not recommend that non-stick coated cookware are stored stacked inside each other since this can cause scratches on the coating.
When cleaning a non-stick coated cookware, use a mild detergent and warm water. Do not use steel wool or anything that may scratch the coating. Always wash the cookware by hand since dishwasher detergent can damage the surface.
