Guidance Care & Use

- NEVER heat the pan when it is empty.
- Select the cooker ring with the correct diameter for the pot and never use a ring which is too small. Please also follow your cooker or hob instructions.
- Distribute the oil or fat evenly over the base of the pan and heat in stages. NEVER start at the highest setting. Heat thin-based pans particularly slowly and carefully.
- The correct temperature has been reached with the fat or oil shows ripples as it moves around the pan.
- Turn down the temperature immediately if the oil begins to steam or smoke. Depending on the type of oil used, the optimum temperature should be around 200 °C.
- When cooking on induction hobs, please check that your pan is suitable for induction. If so, never use the boost function, as this is intended for rapid heating of large quantities of liquid and not for frying.
