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.Learn more about Cookware & Kitchen Tools
