Q:

How do you clean Cuisinart cookware?

A:

How one cleans Cuisinart cookware depends on the type of product. Some collections contain dishwasher-safe cookware, while others must be washed by hand. For dishwasher-safe sets, place the cookware on the regular racks, and wash them with other pots and pans. Hand-washing techniques vary based on the type of cookware items and if there is any dried-on food. Soak in warm water to loosen any dried-on food remains.

For all cookware, let it cool before hand-washing. Use a soft cloth or sponge for cleaning. Avoid using any abrasive products, such as a steel-wool pad, because it can damage the finish on the cookware. Squirt a couple of drops of mild dish-washing liquid in a sink of warm water. Wipe the inside and outside of the cookware with the cloth or sponge until it is clean. Rinse in cold water; and, either let it air dry, or dry it with a clean, lint-free cloth.

If there are stains on the outside of the cookware, use an oven cleaner to help remove them. For stains inside the pan, use special products designed for cookware to prevent damage. If the cookware loses its overall shine, wash it in vinegar to restore its brightness.

  • Q:

    How does induction cooktop cookware work?

    A:

    Induction cooktops use magnetic fields to induce electric currents in iron or stainless steel pans. Since these metals are poor conductors of electricity, much of the energy is dispersed, causing the pan to heat up. Induction cooktops heat much faster than gas or electric, since the heat comes from the pan itself rather than a burner heating the pan and then transferring that heat to the food.
