Don’t Refurbish! Just Clean!

Posted

    Too often, customers pay to have their cookware refurbished due to a perceived defect in the release aid that causes sticking issues. More often than not, however, we find that the release aid isn’t the issue. Rather, the cookware has simply not been properly cleaned between uses. In an effort to save our customers money and improve the overall cooking experience with your LloydPans Kitchenware, we’ve gathered the following cleaning tips and tricks:

    First, DO NOT WASH IN THE DISHWASHER! Dishwashing detergents contain caustic chemicals that will damage the surface of your cookware and void the warranty. To ensure your cookware yields results for many years after purchase, hand wash only.

    To support the release aid and to help prevent sticking, we recommend one of the following cleaning techniques:

  • For normal soiling
  • Hand wash in warm, soapy water with nonabrasive sponge or cloth. Dry cookware with towel instead of drip-drying.

  • For slight sticking
  • Soak in hot soapy water for 15 to 30 minutes and scour with a brush, Scotch-Bright blue, or other non-metallic pad. You may use a metal spatula to scrape and loosen stubborn food debris.

  • For deeper cleaning and to remove stains
  • Use Bar Keepers Friend to clean difficult stains. Begin by soaking cookware in hot soapy water and scrub with a brush, Scotch-Bright blue, or other non-metallic pad to loosen difficult sticking or stains. Add Bar Keepers Friend cleaner as directed, utilizing a small amount of water until paste consistency is achieved. Scrub vigorously for several minutes and then rinse. Finish with a final wash with dish soap, rinse and dry with towel. Prior to next use wipe with light amount of oil, removing the excess with a paper towel.

  • To polish the surface
  • This helps restore the release by maintaining a smooth surface. Pour about a quarter cup of coarse salt into the dry pan and rub vigorously with a dry wash cloth or towel until smooth. Polish the surface with a circular motion for several minutes. Wash off excess salt, dry with towel and lightly wipe with a small amount of oil prior to next use.
