Tasty Cookware Cleaning Guide Cleaning Immediately after cooking, remove the pan from heat and let it cool on a heat-resistant surface. CAUTION! DO NOT POUR WATER ONTO A HOT PAN. Always wash pan thoroughly with soap and water after each use. Brief cleaning with a dishcloth may not remove all food, grease particles or non-stick spray, which may settle into the non-stick finish. If not removed, they may burn when the pan is reheated, causing stains and reducing the non-stick quality. To remove stubborn spots, use a non-abrasive plastic mesh pad. Use only products which clearly state they are safe for non-stick surfaces. Do not use steel wool, coarse scouring pads or powders. This bakeware is dishwasher safe and may be washed in an automatic dishwasher. A red film or spots may occur after dishwashing, which is caused by dishwashing detergent residue or from not letting the pan dry completely before storing. The red film or spots can easily be removed by wiping it with cooking oil. Because automatic dishwasher detergents can be hard on finishes, to preserve the non-stick surface and color, hand washing is recommended. Utensils Use only nylon, silicone or wooden utensils for non-stick bakeware. NEVER cut or chop in the pan with a metal utensil. Related articles How do I clean my One Top?
