Here's how to keep the surface of your Non Stick Cookware maintained and ready for the next time you cook.
At Made In, we love using our
Non Stick Cookware
for cooking the most delicate ingredients and meals, whether that’s eggs, fish, or even just fluffy pancakes. And while
Carbon Steel Cookware
Stainless Clad Cookware
are excellent, we designed our Non Stick Pots and Pans to be just as durable and great to cook with. Constructed with 5-layers of 4-different metals, just like our Stainless Clad Cookware, we added 2 layers of non stick coating that is oven safe up to 500F and lasts 70x longer than “ceramic” cookware. Made toxin-free, without PFOA, and silicone-free, it is the perfect cookware to use if you’re trying to be healthier, as they require less oil or cooking sprays.
We can give you all the techniques
for cooking with Non Stick
(like never use it over high heat) but if you don’t know how to properly clean Non Stick Pans, chances are, your cooking will suffer, too. Our Non Stick Cookware is not dishwasher safe because of its coating, so we recommend hand washing instead. Here’s how to clean your Non Stick Cookware properly.
Step One: Empty Your Pan
You shouldn’t clean your Non Stick Frying Pan or Cookware immediately after cooking, doing so could burn you, ruin your sink, or warp the pan. Allow your pan to cool and come to room temperature. Then, remove large food residue into the trash with wood or silicone utensils (not metal utensils as they can scratch the surface) so they don’t clog your sink.
Step Two: Rinse Your Pan
Rinse your pan under warm water to remove the stuck on food residue. Do not use cold water as, again, if the pan is hot, it will cause it to warp, creating an uneven cooking surface the next time you use it.
Step Three: Scrub Gently
Use a soft sponge or soft-bristled brush to remove any residue, and add a few drops of dish soap to help cut through burnt food while you scrub your pan until it is free of any grease, oil, or caked on food. We do not recommend using steel wool or white vinegar in any way to clean nonstick pans as that can ruin the stick coating for future use.
Step Four: Dry and Put Away
Using a towel, dry your Non Stick Cookware, and put away, being careful not to stack them as this can scratch and damage the coating. If you want to stack your Non Stick Pans, place a cloth napkin in between the pans.
Step Five: Get Cooking
As you can see, caring for our Non Stick Cookware is extremely simple, which is one of the reasons we love it so much. And now that you know how to care for your Non Stick Cookware, the next step is knowing how to properly cook with it. For techniques, tips, and tricks, we asked our chef friends on how to make delicious meals like omelettes, pancakes, and plenty more.
