Reference the Care Instructions on page 12 of the enclosed recipe booklet for more information.
The Oven-Safe Skillet’s exceptional heat conductivity allows you to cook delicious meals without the use of high heat. Combined with the heat retention properties of cast iron, high heat levels can potentially be overpowering to delicate ingredients. In fact, using low heat yields the best results even when stir-frying vegetables or searing proteins, because the skillet distributes heat evenly and rapidly, even at lower temperatures.
Tip 1: Thoroughly preheat the skillet before adding ingredients.
Tip 2: Turn off heat when adding ingredients that tend to stick.
Some ingredients, like eggs or flour, tend to stick more than others. When cooking with these ingredients, an additional step to turn off the heat will further equalize heat across the skillet's surface and minimize sticking.
Reference the Stovetop Heating Guide on page 14 and the Oven Heating Guide on page 16 of the enclosed recipe booklet for more information.
The skillet is dishwasher-safe. Make sure the skillet is not in contact with other kitchenware to avoid damage upon potential impact. Do not use a detergent that contains abrasives and bleaches.
When handwashing, always clean with mild dish soap and a soft sponge. Never scrub with force or with abrasive cleaners to avoid damaging the enamel coating.
Soaking the handle for extended periods may damage the skillet or cause water to seep in between the joint and handle. Wipe wet spots with a dry cloth immediately after washing.
