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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
