Using the cookware – ceramic non-stick coating metal utensils can be used but plastic, rubber or wooden utensils are recommended to prolong the life of the pan. 3. Use of oils – Its recommended to use a little bit of oil or butter when using ceramic non-stick. It’s good to note that Extra Virgin Olive Oil and oil sprays carbonise (AKA: the brown, sticky stains that won’t come off the pan) very quickly when the pan is heated and should be avoided when cooking with ceramic non-stick. 4. Cleaning and storing – Dishwasher Safe. To preserve the pan, it is recommended to wash it in warm soapy water. Please allow the cookware to cool completely before washing, leftover fats can carbonise fast. A hot pan plunged in cold water can result in a thermal shock and eventually deform the frying pan.
