So how do you look after such great pans?

Once you’ve invested in quality cookware, you will want to take care of it to make it last a lifetime. Here are some pointers from Le Creuset to keep your Le Creuset Toughened Non-Stick in the family for a lifetime:

  • Before using for the first time, wash in warm, soapy water and thoroughly rinse before conditioning the interior non-stick surface by rubbing vegetable or corn oil over the entire surface. Once done, rinse your product with hot water, then dry thoroughly (DO NOT condition the exterior!)
  • When cooking it is recommended to use silicone, wooden or heat-resistant plastic utensils. Even though metal utensils have been tested, they really should be avoided or used with super special care and attention.
  • Don’t use electric or battery-operated beaters or blenders, knives or sharp tools and implements inside non-stick coated pans.
  • Use the product on the most appropriately sized hob ring for even cooking - this will also prevent unnecessary damage to handles and sides. Induction hobs often won’t recognise that there’s a pan sat on it if it’s placed on the wrong sized ring (for induction hob cooking, avoid using the ‘boost’ function as it should only be used for rapidly heating large volumes of water).
  • Cooking on a medium or low heat gets the best results. Let the pan heat up gradually. If you do need to use a high heat, lower the setting once the desired heat has been reached.
  • For fat-free cooking, preheat your product on medium heat for around 2 minutes, then add the food. Don't leave the product unattended or allow it to overheat as this could cause damage.
  • Cooking ingredients with a low smoking point (like olive oil) at higher temperatures can cause permanent damage to the non-stick surface and staining. Don't use spray-on cooking oils as they have a low smoking point.
  • Never slide the product on any glass-topped hob/stove top, as this may cause damage to the product base and the glass. Always carefully lift.
  • When using under the grill, always allow at least a 6.5 cm (2 ½ inch) gap between the heat source and the top of your product.
  • Place your product on a shelf or rack in the oven, not on the floor of it as this can increase the cooking temperature, which can ruin your food and damage your product.
  • Always cool the product before cleaning. Never plunge it into or fill it with cold water when hot as the excessive temperature change may damage the product.
  • Although dishwasher safe, hand wash is recommended in warm, soapy water to help the non-stick surface last longer.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or metal, harsh abrasive or very stiff cleaning pads or brushes on any of the surfaces.
