Use and Care
BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME. Wash cookware thoroughly with hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry. "Condition" the interior with cooking oil. Remove excess oil with a dry paper towel. "Condition" regularly. For best results, preheat the cookware on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes prior to adding food; this ensures a more consistent temperature during the cooking cycle. Continue cooking using low to medium heat. Use plastic, nylon or wooden cooking utensils. Minor scratching will only affect the appearance of the pan. It will not affect the performance. Cookware can be used in a preheated oven. Phenolic knobs and handles can be used in oven up to 350 degrees F or 177 degrees C. DO NOT put in oven when self-cleaning cycle is operating. Cover Vacuum: cover left on pan after turning heat down or off may result in a vacuum that causes the cover to seal to the pan. If seal occurs, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE COVER FROM THE PAN IN ANY WAY. Contact the World Kitchen Consumer Care Center. To avoid cover seal, remove cover or set it ajar before turning heat off.
To prevent warping, let cookware cool before coming into contact with water. To remove burned on food, soak before cleaning and scrub with a plastic scouring pad. DO NOT use abrasive scouring powders, pads or steel wool. Thoroughly wash pan after each use. Use hot soapy water to avoid staining caused by food or grease residue buildup. Dishwasher use will dull aluminum and phenolic finishes. Avoid long-term storage with foods. Some foods and salt can "pit" the surfaces and make it difficult to clean. Add salt to liquid only after it reaches the boiling points, and stir to dissolve completely. Use of high heat may cause foods to stick.
