Advice for ceramic and induction hobs

Always lift pots and pans when moving them on ceramic and induction hobs. Hobs of this type are subject to low manufacturer tolerances. Because of these low tolerances as well as light residue between the surface of the hob and the bottom of the pan (from salt, sugar, etc.), dragging pots or pans can scratch the aluminium bottom or surface of ceramic or induction hobs. No liability can be assumed for such damage.


How do I care for my SKK cookware?

Caring for items in the SKK Series: 3 - 5 - 7 - 9 - 11 - 13 - 15: To maintain the attractive appearance and cooking efficiency of your SKK cookware, scrub thoroughly with a brush and hot soapy water immediately after use. This ensures that cleaning your SKK cookware is quick and easy. After washing your SKK product, we recommend wiping out your pan again with a little oil and a kitchen towel. Burned in food can be removed with a bit of detergent and a soft nylon sponge. We do not recommend washing your SKK cookware in a dishwasher because the detergents used in modern machines are becoming increasingly aggressive and they can damage the non-stick surface. It will then lose its non-stick effect. In time, the centre of the cooking surface will take on a slightly brown appearance. This is normal and no attempt should be made to remove this as it does not influence the cooking efficiency of your SKK product. SKK cookware was developed for cooking - not for storing food. Therefore, it should be cleaned immediately after use.


How do I care for my SKK stainless steel cookware?

Because the stainless steel surface of Tri Ply is ultra-hard, non-reactive and virtually non-porous, using a small amount of fat or oil will usually result in pans that either wipe clean or need a minimum amount of washing. SKK stainless steel products are dishwasher safe. After washing you should take the cookware from the dishwasher immediately to avoid water spots caused by condensed moisture. For ordinary cleaning just use hot water and a little bit of soap. For tough, baked on food, soak the residues in hot water for a few minutes. Restore the finish with hot soapy water. If over time stains or discolourations appear on the surface, these are very easy to remove by wiping off with a lemon half. Do not use abrasive scouring pads, steel wool pads or scouring cleaners because these can make the surface rough. Only salt your food - never the bottom of your cookware. Before adding salt, vinegar or other dressings and spices, please make sure that the water is hot or boiling because this ensures quick dissolution and helps prevent corrosion and oxidation of your cookware walls. Stains on the cookware surface caused by corrosion and oxidation are unavoidable, but they do not affect the functionality of the cookware or the quality of cooked food.
