Nonstick Cookware Care 101

Before using our nonstick cookware, please read the following instructions to extend the life of your nonstick pots and pans and reduce the risk of damage.

Before Use

All our nonstick pots & pans do not need to be seasoned. Simply clean with soap and warm water, dry with a soft cloth or sponge, and they are ready to use.

Using Your Pots & Pans

  • Low to medium heat cooking

You may add cooking oil of your choice and warm on low heat before getting started. Please allow the pan to warm up slowly and avoid cooking over high heat.

  • Avoid dry heating

Never heat a pan without food, water or oil in it. It may harm nonstick layer.

  • Never use aerosol cooking spray

The oil aerosol sprays build up and coat a pan’s surface when heated, which may affect nonstick performance.

  • Never use metal utensil

Please cook with a wooden or silicone utensil to avoid possible damage to the non-stick layer by sharp metal.

  • Avoid hard food

Some meats with sharp edges like t-bone steaks, lamb chops and pork chops may leave hairline scratches when moved about in the nonstick pan.

  • Do not store food for too long

Certain foods (especially highly acidic foods) can corrode the nonstick coating of the pan. To store leftovers, place them in a container that can be safely refrigerated.

Cleaning Your Pots & Pans

Cooker King pots and pans are coated with non-toxic, nonstick ceramic or special non-stick coating (PFOA Free). It is easy to clean.

  • Clean cookware with dish soap and warm water using a soft rag or non-abrasive sponge. *Do not use hard metal
    brush, steel wool, or other rough cleaning tools. Do not use any abrasive cleaner.
  • Hand washing is preferred. Caustic dishwasher detergents do not help extend the life of non-stick cookware.

Store Your Pots & Pans

  • Ensure that the pan is clean and free of food residue or other dirt.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
  • Store individually. If you need to stack nonstick pans due to space constraints, place a soft cloth or rag between them to prevent pots and pans from rubbing against each other and causing scratches.


Burned a Pan?

Don't worry, here’s what you need to do:

  • Bring a cup of water and vinegar to a boil in the pan.
  • Remove your pan from heat, add baking soda, and lightly scrub with a sponge.
  • If you still see residue, make a thicker paste with baking soda and water. Apply to the stain and let it sit for a few hours. It should wash away easily after this step.
