How to Care for Your CookwareIf you’ve invested in a great set of pots and pans, and you love the great effect that they’ve had on your cooking, then you’re going to want that investment to last. Here are some tips on how to care for your cookware that will keep your favorite pots and pans at peak performance for a long time to come.
The specific type of care your cookware needs will depend on the type of pots and pans you are using. Most good cookware sets come with instructions, and you should read these carefully before using your pans. For example, you should never use metal utensils with non-stick pans, and you should learn how to season a cast iron skillet before use.
Another common mistake that cooks make is to use higher temperatures than necessary with their pots and pans. While high temperatures are sometimes necessary, for boiling water, for example, prolonged exposure to very high heats can ruin non-stick linings and weaken aluminum cookware. Furthermore, cooking at high heats increases the risk of having stubborn burnt food stuck to your pans.
If any food does stick while cooking, be sure to remove it as soon as possible to decrease the likelihood of stains.
By following these directions, you can keep your cookware looking great and functioning well for the longest possible time.
