Before You Cook
Before using cookware for the first time, wash in warm, sudsy water, rinse and dry thoroughly.
Safe for use on gas, electric, electric coil, halogen and ceramic cook tops.
Preheat the pan using the heat setting you intend to use when cooking, before adding butter or oil.
Do not rush the preheating process by using high heat.
Experiment with heat settings; start with medium heat and adjust as needed.
Use high heat for boiling liquids only.
Use medium-high heat for searing, sautéing, frying and stir-frying.
Use a medium heat setting for reducing liquids, pancakes, sandwiches and omelettes.
Use low heat to warm foods, simmer or prepare delicate sauces.
Butter or Oil
Use the ‘butter test’ to determine whether your pan is hot enough for sautéing. Simply wipe a dab of butter on the bottom of the pan. If it bubbles briskly without burning, your pan is perfectly preheated.
Allow the oil or butter to heat for a minute before adding food to the pan.
Oven & Broiler Use
Cookware is oven and broiler safe.
CAUTION!!! Use caution when using Calphalon cookware in the oven. Handles will become very hot. Always use a potholder or oven mitt to prevent burns when removing pans from the oven
Always use caution when cooking on the stovetop or when using cookware in the oven.
Short handles, high cooking temperatures and long cooking times can cause handles to get hot on the stovetop or when used in the oven.
Safe for use with all utensils.
Remove food from the refrigerator 10 minutes before you intend to cook. Ice-cold food is more likely to stick to a hot pan.
Cleaning & Care
Hand wash only – not dishwasher safe. NEVER place cookware in an automatic dishwasher, or use abrasive cleaning pads or cleansers. This will damage the pan and void the warranty.
Interiors: Clean the stainless steel surface of the pan with a liquid dishwashing detergent (such as Dawn®) and a non-abrasive sponge (such as a Scotch-Brite™ Dobie™ or blue Scotch-Brite™ scrub sponge) or soft bristle brush. For stubborn spots, use Bar Keeper’s Friend® with a non-abrasive sponge then hand wash in hot, sudsy water.
Exteriors: Hand wash copper exterior using a liquid dishwashing detergent (such as Dawn®) and a non-abrasive sponge or soft bristle brush. Towel dry to reduce spotting. To maintain copper, use Bar Keeper’s Friend®, Penny Brite or other cleanser specially formulated for copper cookware with a non-abrasive sponge then hand wash in hot, sudsy water.
DO NOT USE oven cleanser or other caustic cleaning solutions, baking soda, bleach, or liquid household cleaners used for walls, floors, porcelain, etc. These cleaners will damage cookware and void the warranty.
