Tips for care and use
While some saucepans are dishwasher safe, a dishwasher’s detergent can be too harsh, especially for non-stick surfaces. It’s better to hand wash in warm soapy water and use a soft sponge for cleaning. Never wash a hot non-stick pan in cold water; this can damage the non-stick surface and may cause the base of the pan to buckle.
To get the most out of your saucepan only use wooden or silicon utensils. Even though some manufacturers claim using metal utensils is OK, using or wooden or silicon ones will prevent scratching and extend the life of your pan.
Add salt to boiling water only, as adding salt to cold water can cause pitting of the base.
