Enamel cookware use and care
Before the first use
- Remove all foils and stickers from the enamel cookware. Any residual glue can easily be removed with cooking oil.
Instructions for everyday use
- Never heat up the cookware without contents, and ensure that the liquid never completely evaporates. Otherwise the cookware can overheat and the base can deform. Maximum recommended temperature for cooking and frying: 220°C
- Choose the hob with the appropriate diameter for your pots or pans, to avoid energy loss.
- Cook with less heat than usual. Enamel quickly conducts the heat into the base and walls. This way your dishes are cooked gently, the ingredients stay intact and you improve the taste of food. In addition, you avoid risk of burning, save energy and extend the life of the cookware.
- Allow for enough time when reducing the temperature and observe the cooking process. When cooking with hot fat/oil, there is a flammability hazard.
- The cookware core is made of iron and heats up quickly. Most of our products have enamel handles and lids, and can also be used in the oven.
- Always handle enamel handles and lids with a dry potholder.
- Enamel is scratch and cut-resistant. You can cut with knife (with the exception of ceramic knives) and remove food with kitchen utensils without causing any damage.
- Enamel is very hard. However, impact from hard objects, dropping on hard floors or severe knocks with kitchen utensils can lead to the glass surface chipping.
- If the glass layer on the outside chips in spite of taking all necessary care, this is only cosmetic damage. The cookware can still continue to be used. In the case of chips on the inside, we recommend replacing the product, as optimum hygiene is no longer guaranteed.
- Never leave small children unsupervised near the oven and hot cookware.
Care and cleaning
Enamel cookware is bacteria inhibiting due to its smooth, non-porous surface made of glass, and so easy to clean. It gives you longlasting joy if you follow the following.
Cookware is dishwasher safe – the best is to use the light program for washing glasses. However, we recommend manual cleaning for radiant shine of enamel all the way to the next generation.
- Manual cleaning is the best way to ensure long lasting enamel gloss.
- Fill the still warm cookware with warm – never cold – water and washing-up liquid after cooking and emptying. The cookware can be cleaned effortlessly after a short soak. In the case of particularly stubborn or burnt-on food residues, briefly bring the water and washing-up liquid to the boil.
- Use the smooth side of the cleaning sponge or a soft brush for cleaning. Avoid wire brushes, steel wool, scouring powder containing sand and cleaning sponges with ceramic particles.
Washing in the dishwasher
- Before putting dishes into a dishwasher, remove food leftovers or scorched and burnt food (see manual hand-washing). Rinse briefly with warm water. Use a program for mildly washing the glasses.
- Dry the cookware well before storing. Any lime spots can effortlessly be removed with vinegar water.
