CARE & USE
Stainless Steel first use
The "Stainless Steel" collection is completely dishwasher-safe. It is recommended that before you use your Stainless Steel All-Clad you wash it in the dishwasher first to remove any manufacturing residues and this will help you to keep it shiny.
Most recipes recommend placing our pots on low heat for one or two minutes before adding foods.
Frying without natural fats
Add oil, butter, or margarine to the pot or pan; just enough to cover the bottom surface.
Heat pot or pan for one to two minutes over low or medium heat.
Add food for frying.
If sticking is a problem check:
Is your cooker level?
Is your pot clean?
Is your heat set too high?
Low to medium heat setting is recommended for optimal cooking performance.
To avoid the formation of small white dots or pits, bring liquids to a boil before adding salt, then stir well. Or, add salt after food has started to cook. Pitting does not interfere with cooking performance but can diminish the beauty of the stainless steel.
To prevent water spotting
After washing, rinse in hot water and dry immediately.
Overheating can cause brown or blue stains. Food films, if not removed, will cause discoloration on the pot when it is reheated. Large amounts of iron content in your water may cause your pot to look rusty.
Cleaning the Stainless steel interior
Immerse in warm water. Use a fine powder cleanser with water to form a paste. Apply paste using a soft cloth. Rub in a circular motion from the centre outward. Wash in hot, soapy water, dry immediately. DO NOT USE oven cleaners or cleansers with chlorine bleach. DO NOT USE steel wool.
Cleaning the Stainless steel exterior
The polished stainless steel exterior of All-Clad Stainless requires very little care. It may be polished with one of the available commercial stainless steel cleaners, rubbing in a circular motion. Rinse in lukewarm water. We do not recommend using steel wool, steel scouring pads or harsh detergents. Nylon scrubbing pads are safe to use. You may wash Stainless in the dishwasher.
