Care and Use of your Nonstick Cookwell « Back

  • Nonstick cookwell should always be washed before its first use. Most nonstick finishes will benefit from a small amount of cooking oil rubbed into the surface for the initial use as well.
  • Heat is the enemy of nonstick. Use of low to medium heat will preserve food nutrients as well as protecting the nonstick finish. Make sure that food, oil or water is in the cookwell before heating unless the recipe calls for preheating the pan before adding food.
  • Even though many nonstick finishes can withstand the occasional swipe with a metal utensil, the finish will last longer if nylon or wooden utensils are used. Sharp knives will pierce any nonstick finish quite easily.
  • Foods should not be store in nonstick (or any cookwell for that matter). Nonstick finishes can stain if left in contact with some foods.
  • Nonstick cookwell should cool before it is immersed in water.
  • Some nonstick cookwells are dishwasher safe, although the high heat drying cycle of the dishwasher will degrade the nonstick finish over time. Hand washing is quick with nonstick and is preferred, although most consumers use the dishwasher anyway.
  • If burned residue collects on the nonstick surface, a solution of 3 tablespoons of household bleach, 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid in one cup of water will usually remove the residue, especially if allowed to soak for an hour. The surface should be reconditioned with a light wipe of cooking oil before using it again.
