Use & Care - Non-Stick Coatings

Before first use, wash in hot, soapy water and dry promptly. For best results, hand-washing is recommended.

Do not heat cookware when it is empty. Be sure to keep your pots from boiling dry.

Josef Strauss cookware is designed for optimum heat distribution. Only medium to low heat settings are necessary for most cooking applications.

When cooking, it is best to use only wooden, heat-resistant nylon or silicone tools to avoid scratching non-stick surfaces. Do not use metal utensils as they will damage coatings.

Always allow cookware to cool before washing. Do not immerse hot cookware in cold water.

Hand-washing is generally recommended to improve the lifespan of your non-stick pans. Do not use abrasive materials, such as steel wool, when cleaning non-stick surfaces.

It is strongly inadvisable to leave any cookware or kitchen tools in the sink immersed in water for a long period of time.

Be careful when storing non-stick cookware, as stacking bare metal against the coated surface can sometimes lead to scratches or other damages. It is recommended to hang this type of cookware from a pot rack with plenty of room between items, or to separate stacked pieces with a small, soft cloth, such as a dish towel.
