Hard Anodized Cookware

Exceptional Durability

Easy Release & Clean Up

Hard anodized cookware is harder than other conventional cookware Hard anodization is a manufacturing process that treats the aluminum to make it harder and more durable. The result is a solid coating distinguished by its dark gray color.

This process creates a surface typically harder than other conventional cookware.

Objects that come in contact with the cookware’s exterior surface may leave marks that are often interpreted as scratches. However, these “scratches” are merely a deposit or residue left from the object in contact with the hard anodized surface of the cookware.

By simply scrubbing or buffing the areas in question with a nylon scouring pad and mild cleanser, the hard anodized surface will be reconditioned and will regain its original appearance.

Using Your Hard Anodized Cookware

  • Before using your cookware for the first time, hand-wash with warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly. Then season by lightly rubbing cooking oil onto the cooking surface and heating the cookware over medium heat for two to three minutes. When cool, hand-wash in warm, soapy water and rinse.
  • Do not use nonstick aerosol cooking sprays in your cookware. They will leave a residue, which may be difficult to remove, and will cause foods to stick to the cookware.
  • To preserve the look and performance of your pans, we recommend using silicone, nylon, bamboo or wood utensils when cooking. Regardless of how hard the cooking surface is, using metal utensils or sharp objects may damage the cooking surface over time and void the warranty.
  • Be careful when stacking or nesting your cookware. Although it won't affect the cookware's performance, bumping or knocking against other pieces will scratch or blemish the exterior and interior surfaces.
  • Cook or boil using low to medium heat only. Since hard anodized cookware yields excellent conductivity and delivers even heat distribution, the usage of high heat is not necessary. In fact, the use of high heat can permanently discolor and damage your cookware and void the warranty.
  • Keep the cookware on the burner only during the necessary time for cooking or boiling. Do not overheat empty cookware.
  • Your cookware is oven-safe up to 350ºF (176ºC). Even though the handles are oven-safe, they will get hot in the oven and on the stove top, particularly gas stoves where an open flame is used. Therefore, please use protective mitts to safely handle the cookware. Do not use under an oven broiler unit.
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes such as immersing hot cookware in cold water. Always let the cookware cool before washing.
  • Prolonged exposure to high heat settings may cause your cookware to discolor. To recondition your cookware or to remove stubborn spots or stains, use a nonabrasive pad and quality stainless steel cleanser such as Bar Keepers Friend®.

Tempered Glass Lid

CAUTION:

Oven-safe up to 350°F (176°C).

Avoid sudden or severe temperature changes.

Do not immerse hot lid in cold water.

Thermal shock can cause a tempered glass lid to shatter.

Immediately discontinue use of damaged lid.


Understanding Tempered Glass Lids

Industrial glass is tempered by a controlled thermal treatment process to increase its strength when compared with normal glass.

Tempering creates balanced internal stresses which cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards.

The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury. Under normal usage, and by following the instructions below, tempered glass lids are safer for use within household kitchens.

However, extra caution must be used when handling glass lids.

When cleaning a glass lid, do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool or coarse scouring pads, as they may scratch the surface of the glass lid, which may cause breakage over time.

    THERMAL SHOCK

  • Avoid sudden temperature changes such as placing a hot lid on a cold surface or immersing a hot lid in cold water.
  • Always let the lid cool before washing, as sudden temperature changes can break the glass.
  • Do not place a cold lid from the refrigerator directly in a heated oven or on a hot pan. Allow the lid to reach room temperature prior to use.

IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE THE USE of a lid that has been damaged during transportation, accidentally dropped or shows signs of damage or scratching. Continuing to use a damaged tempered glass lid may cause shattering without warning, leading to possible injuries to users or bystanders.

Cleaning and Caring for your Cookware

HAND-WASH ONLY! Never put your cookware in the dishwasher. Harsh dishwasher detergents can discolor the hard anodized exterior and void the warranty.

Interior Cleaning: The nonstick cooking surface on your cookware ensures easy cleanup with just soap and water. Should burnt grease or food residue collect on the surface, it can usually be removed with warm water and a mild detergent. For extreme cases, residue can be removed with a thorough cleaning using Soft Scrub®. Do not use abrasive cleansers, steel wool or coarse scouring pads.

Exterior Cleaning: If stubborn stains occur, clean the exterior of your cookware with a mild kitchen cleanser, such as Ajax® or Comet®, and a nylon scouring pad immediately after they appear.

Do not use steel wool or coarse scouring pads.


IMPORTANT

SEASON YOUR COOKWARE BEFORE ITS FIRST USE.
DO NOT USE NONSTICK AEROSOL COOKING SPRAYS.
USE ONLY LOW TO MEDIUM HEAT.
USE ONLY WOOD, NYLON OR SILICONE UTENSILS.
HAND-WASH ONLY!
