  • 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.
  • Dishwasher safe
  • 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.
  • For non-stick cookware, to keep non-stick surfaces from scratching, use nylon or plastic utensils
  • 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.


A good pan.despite a few kinks

I've had this pan for a little over 2 mos. Initially there were problems with hot spots. I then started cooking on low medium instead of medium heat, which is all you really need with the copper core, and it was fine. Only complaints are: I can't find a steamer insert due to the half size; and it scratches easily. I didn't expect that and then I realized it was made in China. On the pro side, it heats up quickly and rice is ready in 13 mins.instead of 20.

Great pot

I love this pan. The heat spreads evenly through it and it's very easy to clean.
