Nonstick cookware makes cooking and cleanup a breeze!

Cooking Temperature

  • Do not pre-heat nonstick cookware, even on low heat.
  • Ingredients or cooking oil that works best with moderate heat should be placed in the pan before heating pan.
  • Use low to medium heat for best cooking results and to save energy.
    • It is recommended to begin the cooking process on low for 1–2 minutes before increasing heat.
    • Best results, especially with proteins, are achieved when ingredients are allowed to warm close to room temperature before cooking.
  • Do not leave an empty pan on a hot burner or allow pan to boil dry. This may damage the cookware.
  • Cookware with silicone-grip handles is oven safe up to 400 °F (204 °C).
  • Cookware with stainless steel handles (without silicone grip inserts) is oven safe up to 500 °F (260 °C).

Cooking Sprays

  • The use of aerosol cooking sprays with nonstick cookware is not recommended.
    • Sprays can build up and cause the cookware to lose its nonstick properties.


  • Pans with nonstick coating should not be used under the broiler.
  • Do not place cookware with silicone grip handles under the broiler.

Metal Utensils

  • This cookware features a PFOA-free nonstick surface.  Avoid using sharp-edged and metal utensils that may scratch or cut the nonstick surface unless your cookware features Teflon™ Platinum Plus.
  • Do not cut inside the cookware.

NOTE: Nonstick cookware featuring Teflon™ Platinum Plus coating may be used with metal utensils.
