Some scratches or bare patches may appear please continue to oil and look after the grill plate.
If the cooking tops are used on a high heat for too long a period it may cause the non-stick coating to de-cure.
It is essential that you
- Oil the surfaces with vegetable or cooking oil prior to use
- Initially on each use you warm the grill, not exposing it to extreme heat before putting the food onto it
- Do not use sharp metal barbecue utensils – use the nylon or wooden appliances
- Do not cook on full all the time this will burn the fats to the surface and make cleaning difficult
- When cleaning do not use abrasive cloths or detergents please soak and wipe with a sponge
- If the debris remains we would suggest soaking the grill with a mild washing liquid or indeed put the grill plate through your domestic dish washer.
- Cover burnt areas with baking soda. Once the pan has cooled from cooking with it, pour a small amount of baking soda on the areas of that pan covered with burned food. Then add a small amount of water to the baking soda piles, and allow the pan to sit overnight. The baking soda and water should look like a paste mixture.
- Scrub off the residue. After allowing the pan to soak overnight, scrub the pan with a soft, nylon scrubber or sponge to remove the burned food.
- The food should come off the pan rather easily, but if there are any stubborn areas, try using a bit more pressure to scrub off the food.
- Wash the pan normally. Once the burned food is removed from the pan, wash it in the sink as normal. Use warm to hot water, a soft nylon scrubber or sponge, and a small amount of dishwashing soap (Avoid Lemon Based Cleaning Agents) to wipe and clean all areas of the pan.
- Rinse the pan with clean water to remove and soap or food residue.
- Dry the pan. Use a dishtowel, paper towel, or drying rack to dry off the pan. Once the pan is dry, lightly coat with vegetable oil, it’s ready to be used again for cooking, or stored for later use.
- Instead of spraying a non-stick pan with an aerosol cooking spray, apply a thin layer of olive oil to the pan with a pastry brush. This will avoid creating a hard to remove layer of film on your non-stick cookware.
- Try to avoid using metal utensils with non-stick cookware. The metal could potentially scratch the surface of the pan. Instead, try to use wooden, rubber, or plastic utensils.
- Always read the instructions that came with the cookware to see if it’s safe to wash in the dishwasher.
