The Essentials Nonstick Collection simplifies the cooking process. Engineered with 3 layers of our high performing, PFOA-free nonstick coating, which keeps food molecules from clinging to the surface, making it perfect for cooking sticky or delicate foods. Constructed of hard anodized aluminum, it’s highly durable. Pieces stack neatly without touching for minimalist storage with no surface wear. This 10-Piece Cookware Set is the complete cooking package, with two versatile fry pans (8.5 and 10.5 inches), a 2.5-quart saucepan with lid, a 4-quart Saute pan with lid, a 7-quart stockpot with colander and lid, and a 13-inch square pan. The matte black finish gives every piece a touch of understated sophistication that’ll match nearly any chef’s style. Made with convenience in mind, cleaning your Essentials Nonstick cookware is effortless. Simply put it in the dishwasher or give it a quick hand washing to wrap up the easiest cooking experience you’ve ever had.
Before the first use, wash and dry your new pan. Next, season the pan by rubbing cooking oil on the nonstick surface and placing it over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Once cooled, wash the pan again in warm soapy water.
However, hand washing may prolong appliances life and appearance. We recommended using nylon scrubbing pads or soft sponge and advise against oven cleaners, steel wool, steel scouring pads, harsh detergents or detergents containing chlorine bleach, which can damage the pan's surface and exterior.
If severe amounts of burned grease of food residue collect and become too difficult to remove through normal cleaning, try mixing 3 tablespoons bleach, 1 tablespoon liquid dish detergent and 1 cup of water and apply with sponge or plastic scrubbing pad. Once clean, recondition the surface with a light wipe of cooking oil.
