Stainless Steel

The following is use and care for our Stainless Steel cookware. By Following these instructions, you can keep your Stainless cookware in excellent condition.

Let's Cook!

Thoroughly wash and dry cookware before first use.

Use on electric, glass, ceramic, gas, and induction cook tops.

Lodge Stainless cookware is oven safe to 400° F.

Cook using low to medium heat settings for best results. The energy efficiency of the tri-ply base responds to heat quickly. Using high heat could result in sticking or scorching of food.

Do not store food in cookware overnight. Salts and acidic food can cause discoloration.

Clean Up Time

Allow cookware to cool before washing. Sudden temperature change - such as immersing a very hot pan into cool water - could cause any metal to warp, resulting in an uneven bottom.

Continued exposure to high heat can cause a normal discoloration. Use nonabrasive pads and stainless steel cleaner to remove discoloration and stains.

Stainless steel cookware is dishwasher safe. However, over time harsh dishwashing detergents can cause spotting and discoloration. Hand washing and drying is recommended to maintain the best appearance of all fine cookware.

Tempered glass lids with stainless rims are dishwasher safe.

Should overheating cause food to burn and stick to cookware, fill pot or pan with cold water and bring to boil. Allow pan to cool before washing. The use of a non-abrasive pad and stainless steel cleaner may be required. Do not use abrasive pads and steel brushes as they may scratch the surface.

General Tips

When using a glass or ceramic cooktop, lift cookware rather than sliding across the surface. Although stainless cookware is smooth, food particles trapped between the cookware and the cooktop can damage both the cookware and the cooktop.

Handles will become hot in oven and occasionally become hot on stovetop. For your safety, use protective mitts when handling hot cookware.

Match pan size to burner size. Gas flames should not extend up the sides of the pan.

For your safety, do not heat an empty pan. Keep on burner only during time required for cooking. Stacking pots and pans may cause surface scratches.
