Cleaning Stainless Cookware
It is important to clean your product thoroughly after each use to prevent staining or build-up from food or grease.
- Occasionally stainless steel may exhibit a rainbow-like discoloration.
- This discoloration is normal for new stainless steel product.
- Discoloration may also take place if the product is exposed to higher temperatures.
As long as the product has not been overheated, this rainbow-like discoloration should be easy to remove.
- To remove, use a powdered cleaning agent designed to remove oxidization and a soft, nonabrasive sponge.
- Be sure to rinse thoroughly as cleansers can leave a powdery residue.
Lemon juice will remove the 'rainbow' effect as well.
- To prevent water spotting, rinse in warm water after washing and towel dry thoroughly.
- If a spotted white film appears (caused by minerals in the water) try rubbing with a sponge or brush and lemon juice or vinegar.
- Wash, rinse and towel dry.
To remove stubborn stains or discoloration, use a stainless steel cleaner or a powdered cleaning agent designed to remove oxidization.
- The cleaner should be rubbed on the stains with a non-abrasive pad, cloth, or sponge.
- Do not scrub with steel wool or use harsh abrasive cleaners as scratching may occur.
Stainless steel cookware may also be washed in a dishwasher using a mild dishwashing detergent.
