    Pot care | Pot use

    A mini guide to pots

    To have longer pleasure with the good performance of your cookware and preserve it in optimum conditions, please observe the following instructions.

    Reference for all pots


    ■  Cookware with plastic handles are not suitable for the oven.
      Depending on the application of the cookware, the handles can become hot. We recommend the use of hand protection, especially when you cook with gas stove or in the oven.
    ■  Never cool down a hot glass lid with cold water, the lid could be damaged by the temperature shock.
    ■  The stainless steel lids can be firmly absorbed at edge of the pot upon cooling down. To solve this vacuum, heat briefly the pot again.
    To avoid the risk of burns caused by oil boiling over or spitting, always use a high-sided pot for deep-frying and never fill out the pot with oil more than half full. Do not use a lid and do not overheat (maximum oil temperature 200°C).

    Important reference for stainless steel pots


    ■  Before using your cookware for the first time, clean every piece thoroughly and cleanse in boiling water.
    ■  Never heat your cookware if it's empty or with oil on a high temperature for longer than 2 minutes. Overheating may cause the bottom of the pot to turn a golden color. However, this discoloration does not affect its performance.
    Extreme overheating may damage the bottom of the pot. In this case, never remove the pot from the stove, otherwise you may risk burning yourself. Switch off the stove and allow the pot to cool down.
    Do not add salt to cold water. Instead, wait until the water boils and then stir in salt. Adding salt to cold water may lead to extremely high salt concentrations at the bottom of the pot, which can cause corrosion spots on the bottom. Such spots on the stainless steel do not affect the performance of the pot, but they are difficult – if not impossible – to remove.

    Important reference for nonstick sealed pots


     ■  Clean the cookware thoroughly and cleanse in boiling water. Dry, rub evenly with oil and heat briefly on the stove.
    ■  Do not use a knife to cut food inside your cookware and do not use any metal or sharp-edged utensils to stir. Please use only kitchen accessories which are made of plastic or wood.
    ■  When an exposed aluminum base is frequently pushed back and forth  on a glass ceramic surface, traces of aluminum may rub off. Aluminum marks can be removed using Fissler glass ceramic care products.
      Never heat your cookware empty or with oil on a high temperature for longer than 5 minutes. Overheating will damage the coating and cause it to lose its nonstick properties. If a pot has been overheated, leave it on the stove with the heat turned off and allow it to cool down.

    Perfect clean and care


    Pots with plastic handles can be cleaned in the dishwasher, but the colors can fade with the time. Consequently you should only occasionally put pots with plastic handles in the dishwasher, not all the time.
    When cleaning in the dishwasher only use common household products in the manufacturer's recommended dosage, and no industry or highly concentrated cleaner.
    Cookware made of cast aluminum is not suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher!
    You can use hot rinse water with usual rinsing agent and a pot sponge or soft brush, avoid rubbing the pot with sharp or pointy objects. For te interior and base you can use, when the pot is heavily soiled, the rough side of the sponge.
    Do not let dry leftovers in the pot.
    Special instructions for stainless steel cookware: Do not store food for long periods in the pot, they can cause stains on stainless steel and alterate the surface. In order to maintain the stainless steel surface in order, use regularly the Fissler Stainless Steel Care. It is ideally suited for the removal of white or rainbow-like discoloration and plaques.
    Special Considerations for coated cookware: To ensure a long service life, we recommend hand washing with hot water, a liquid hand dishwashing soap and a soft sponge. Do not use abrasive or scouring agents.

    Save energy while cooking

    You save energy while cooking if you:

    Match the pot size to the stove plate size. The hot plate can be smaller than the bottom of the pot.
    Switch off the stove before the cooking time ends, because the plates and the pot are still hot and you can use the residual heat to keep on cooking.

    Relation between pot diameter and stove size
    The Fissler pot size refers to the diameter of the inner side of the upper pot body. The diameter of the pot bottom is approximately 2 cm smaller.
