Each pan spreads heat evenly and efficiently, so there are no hot spots in your cooking. The specially constructed base incorporates a magnetic, stainless steel disc that provides extra strength and stability to the pan and makes it suitable for use on ALL HEAT SOURCES including the latest induction hobs. Both the interior and exterior of each pan are finished with one of the most modern, PFOA-free, toughened non-stick finishes available providing superb release of food and easy cleaning – every day. It is an ideal surface for healthier cooking with very little oil or fat.. Optional heat-resistant glass lids are available to buy separately. Handles are secured with stainless steel rivets.
Always match the diameter of the stainless steel disc in the base of pan to the induction hob cooking zone. Using a pan with a small stainless steel disc on too large a cooking zone may result in a weaker magnetic field being created and reduced heat output. In some cases the hob may not “recognise” the pan and no heat will be generated. DO NOT use the boost function for longer than is required to bring the pan’s contents to a boil. The boost function should only be used for rapid heating of large quantities of water e.g. for boiling pasta or vegetables. During cooking, you may notice some slight noise being generated in the pan by the induction hob. This will not damage the pan or affect cooking performance.
Oils and fats
Add a little oil or fat to the cooking surface before heating begins. This will improve the flavour and browning of foods. At no time should the oil or fat be allowed to become smoking hot. If this should occur cool the pan before proceeding.
When cooking with no added fat or oil, pre-heat the pan on a medium setting for approximately 2 minutes before adding the food. DO NOT leave the pan unattended during this time or allow the dry non-stick surface to overheat as permanent damage may occur.
