Recommended care instructions for your George Home Cookware
- All our stainless steel, carbon steel and aluminium cookware is dishwasher safe
- Only wash your copper cookware and hard anodised pans in warm, soapy water to keep them looking at their best (dishwasher detergents can damage them)
- Steel wool and other abrasive cleaners can spoil your cookware and damage the non-stick coating
- Always use plastic or wooden utensils as metal utensils will damage a non-stick coating
- Allow pans to cool, then soften any food remnants in warm, soapy water before cleaning
- Never slice or chop food when it is still inside the pan
- Adding salt to cold water in a stainless steel pans causes salt stains and rusting, so only add salt to boiling water in these sorts of pans
- Don't let your pan boil dry as it can affect stability and damage a non-stick coating
- Metal pan handles can become hot so use an oven glove when needed
- Flames and heat can damage plastic pan handles, so always turn them away from hobs and burners that are in use
- Keep safe and save energy by using hobs and burners that are the right size for your pan
- Test the temperature of the oil by adding a small piece of bread; if it crisps quickly then the oil is hot enough to start frying
- Never fill more than a third of the pan with oil
- CHIP PANS CAN CAUSE FIRES
- NEVER LEAVE A CHIP PAN UNATTENDED
- IF THE OIL STARTS TO SMOKE, IMMEDIATELY TAKE THE PAN OFF the HEAT AND LEAVE IT TO COOL
- IF THE CHIP PAN SETS ALIGHT NEVER USER WATER TO EXTINGUISH THE FLAME AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIREBALL
ADDITIONAL CARE GUIDELINES FOR COPPER PANS
- To keep your copper pans looking at their best, clean and dry them staright after cooling (air drying causes oxidation spots which can be difficult to clean)
- Keep your cookware looking bright and shiny with a copper cleaner
- Take care when handling and storing - copper scratches and dents more easily than stainless steel
