How to use your Tefal pots & pans
Your pots and pans are the foundation of every homecooked meal. That's why proper use and and maintenance of your utentils will help you get the most out of them - and here we'll show you how to master your new Tefal cookware.
Learn the basics
Your first use
Wash the frying pan in hot water and washing-up liquid to remove any dust. Dry it and rub a little cooking oil into the non-stick coating before using for the first time. Remove any excess oil. Wash and dry your cookware after each use.
Some general guidelines to maintain your pots & pans
Always select the proper electric burner size or adjust the gas burner so the flame only touches the bottom of the pan and does not climb up the sides. Never leave pans unattended while cooking. Let pans cool before cleaning.
Is non-stick cookware oven or microwave proof?
Only frying pans, saucepans, saute pans from the Ingenio range thanks to their detachable handles (ensure that the detachable handle is removed) and also stainless steel & cast iron pots can go in the oven up to 250 degrees. However, pans or pots should never be used in a microwave or convection oven.
