Cooking with Nonstick Cookware

Cooking with KitchenAid Nonstick Cookware

Cooking Temperature


  • Use low to medium heat for best cooking results and to save energy. It is recommended to begin the cooking process on low for 1–2 minutes before increasing heat. Best results, especially with proteins, are achieved when ingredients are allowed to warm close to room temperature before cooking.
  • Ingredients or cooking oil that work best with moderate heat should be placed in the pan before heating it.


  • Do not pre-heat nonstick cookware, even on low heat.
  • Do not leave an empty pan on a hot burner, or let the pan boil dry. This may damage the cookware.

Oven Use

  • Cookware with silicone-grip handles is oven-safe up to 400°F (204°C).
  • Cookware with stainless steel handles (without silicone grip inserts) is oven-safe up to 500°F (260°C).

Cooking Sprays

It is not recommended to use aerosol cooking sprays with nonstick cookware. Sprays can build up and cause the cookware to lose its nonstick properties. If you desire the ease of spraying oil, use a manual misting or spray bottle. Reusable oil spray and mister bottles provide an aerosol-free alternative.


Nonstick staining occurs even with normal use but is not considered a defect or covered under the warranty.


Pans with nonstick coatings should not be used under the broiler, and cookware with silicone grip handles should not be placed under it.

Metal Utensils

This cookware features a PFOA-free, nonstick surface. Avoid using sharp-edged and metal utensils that may scratch or cut the nonstick surface. Do not cut inside the cookware.
