Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick pans are made from premium materials that are designed for high performance. Each pan is made from heavy gauge aluminium that is forged for a strong and dependable pan. Be sure to use special care to ensure the pan lasts a long time in your kitchen.
Before First Use
Wash the pan with hot water and dish soap, rinse, and dry thoroughly. Afterwards, season the interior (never exterior) of the pan with a small amount high-heat oil over the whole surface and smooth with paper towels. Rinse the pan with hot water and dry again. The pan is now ready to be used. Occasionally reconditioning the pan's surface will help prolong the lifetime of the pan.
It is essential to never use high heat on Toughened Nonstick pans as this can damage the surface. Be sure the base of the pan matches the diameter of the heat source to prevent damage. Gas flames should never exceed the diameter of the pan as well. Use low to medium heat when cooking, including frying and sauteing. The pan should never be on the maximum high heat setting.
Oils and Fats
Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick Cookware is designed to need little to no oil while cooking; this is designed to improve the flavor of your food. If you do use oil, we recommend a high heat oil when cooking.
Never use sharp objects while cooking as this can damage the pan. We recommend using Le Creuset silicone tools, wooden, or heat resistant plastic tools. Metal tools, spoons, or balloon whisks may be used with care, but use caution and never scrape on the nonstick surface. Never use a knife to cut food inside the pan.
Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick is able to cook in oven temperatures up to 500 degrees F/260 degrees C. Matching glass lids can cook in temperatures up to 425 degrees F/220 degrees C. Do not exceed these temperatures or this will cause significant damage.
The handles are secured using stainless steel rivets. The handles become will become hot in excessive temperatures. Use caution while handling a hot pan. A dry oven mitt, towel, or hot pads should be used to protect your hands.
Cleaning and Storage
Never clean the pan while it is hot. Placing a hot pan under cold water can cause damage. Wait a few minutes afterwards for the pan to dry. Use hot soapy water and a soft sponge to clean. Never use metal, harsh or abrasive sponges/pads as they can scratch the surface of the pan. Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick pans can be cleaned using a dishwasher, but we recommend washing the pans by hand to ensure the quality and lifetime of the pan. Thoroughly dry the pan after washing and store it in a dry, temperature controlled place before the next use. If you are stacking the pans, use towels between each pan to prevent scratches from occurring.
