Too often, customers think the coating is worn off and is creating sticking issues. More often than not, however, we find that a worn coating 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 being with, as soon as you are finished cooking, add hot water and a little dishwashing soap to the pan and let it soak.
If the pan is only mildly soiled, soak for 10 minutes. If the pan has bits stuck and has been heavily used, then let it soak with soiled parts underwater for at least 30 minutes.
Then choose one of the following cleaning techniques:
Hand wash in warm, soapy water with nonabrasive sponge or cloth. Dry cookware with towel instead of drip-drying.
After soaking in hot soapy water for 15 to 30 minutes, use a metal spatula to scrape and loosen stubborn food debris. then scour with a brush, Scotch-Bright blue, or other non-metallic pad.
- 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 a thick consistency is achieved. Scrub vigorously for several minutes and then rinse. Finish with a final wash with dish soap, rinse and dry with a towel. Prior to next use wipe with a 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.
