Proper care for your stainless steel pot:
HOW TO COOK WITH STAINLESS STEEL COOKWARE?Wash with soap or a mild detergent in warm water, use a soft cloth or synthetic sponge. Rinse in hot water and dry with a soft cloth. Let the cookware cool by itself before washing.
Salting the water in a stainless steel pot before heating the water can lead to pitting, tiny bits of rust on the stainless surface. Let the water boil first before adding the salt, just add a little bit at a time because adding high amount of salt to boiling water can make it boil over.
Keep food from sticking:
Heat your stainless steel cookware well, always make sure to preheat the pan before cooking. Let the pan heat up for 2 to 3 minutes before adding oil. To test if your pan is ready, drop a very small morsel of food or a single drop of water into the pan. If you hear the â€œTSSâ€ sound, your pan is ready. It is always a good idea to start your pan at medium heat, and make adjustments from there.
Do not place a cold food directly:
As water combats heat, so does cold food. Adding cold food to a pan works against the heat you have worked at establishing. Meat and vegetables should be brought down or at least close to room temperature before cooking in stainless
DAILY ROUTINE CLEANING:
Wash with soap or a mild detergent in warm water, use a soft cloth or synthetic sponge. Rinse in hot water and dry with a soft cloth. Never bleach Stainless Steel Cookware.
- Wire brushes
- Course abrasive powders
- Metal scrapers/scourers
- Silver or brass cleaners
Burnt food/drink stains:
If heavily stained, soak in hot water with Vinegar and Baking Soda. Use a non-abrasive sponge or scrubber to get rid of any remaining particles.
Make a mixture of vinegar and water, bring to a boil. Allow the mixture to cool, empty the pan, and wash as normal.
Limescale occurs in places where water is either heated or left standing.
To descale your stainless steel pot/kettle, fill it with a mixture of 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Leave the vinegar mixture in the kettle for 1 hour. Then, pour the water out and wipe down the inside of the pot/kettle with a clean rag. Once all the limescale is gone, rinse your pot/kettle out with water 5 times.
