For the best cooking performance, we recommend heating the pan for 1-2 minutes prior to adding food. Use a low to medium heat setting.
Suitable for all cooking surfaces--induction, gas, electric, halogen, ceramic.
Oven and broiler safe up to 500° F
Add salt after water has started to boil, otherwise small white dots or pits can form. Pitting does not interfere with cooking, it just doesn't look good and can be easily avoided.
To remove food residue and stains, use a nylon scrubbing pad and a fine-powdered cleanser, such as Bar Keepers Friend. Steel wool, scouring pads and bleach-based cleaners not recommended.
Overheating can cause blue or brown discoloration. Remove with Bar Keepers Friend or other fine-powdered cleaners.
We recommend allowing cookware to cool prior to washing, otherwise warping may occur.
CIA products are excellent. They offer great performance at a lower price point than other copper core cookware plus an induction ready exterior. The induction capability for future proof use is what sold me. All Clad Copper Core is more costly and is not induction ready so therefore the cost of those pans are harder to justify. I espcially love the 4 quart CIA sautoir. This cookware line does get used more than the other brands I have. The stainless steel will scratch easily but the performance is where it really counts. All stainless cookware scratches. I appreciate the heating properties of this cookware. I strongly recommend this line.
