Suitable for all hobs excluding induction and oven safe to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Each item within this range comes with a lifetime guarantee. Use & Care Stove-Top Cooking Anolon Professional Hard Anodized is extra thick and conducts heat extremely well - from the base as well as up the sides. You may never need to use more than a medium heat. Brief pre-heating prior to adding oil (if so desired) or food is all that is required to maintain the proper temperature during cooking. However, it is important to select the right size pan for the cooking task and the right size burner for the pan. When using gas, adjust the flame so it does not extend up the sides of the pan. Anolon Professional Hard Anodized is recommended for all types of cookers (except induction). Remember not to use Anolon Professional Hard Anodized under a grill or over a campfire, or in a microwave oven. Cooking Utensils Reasonable care should be taken to preserve Anolon Professional Hard Anodized’s outstanding non-stick quality. Plastic or wooden cooking utensils are preferable but a smooth-edged metal spatula may be used where necessary. Heavy use of metal utensils will inevitably scratch the non-stick surface over time although this will not affect food release or food cooking in the pan. Anolon Professional Hard Anodized Allows Healthy Cooking and Easy Cleaning. Watching your fat intake? Anolon Professional Hard Anodized’s non-stick interior can help you ease the burden of excess calories quite significantly. The non-stick features of the Anolon Professional Hard Anodized system allows most foods to be cooked with little or no added fat. Even if not visible, most meat contains fat and can be browned in a pre-heated pan without danger of sticking. And because food doesn’t stick, cleaning up couldn’t be easier. Minimum Moisture Cooking The heat toughened glass lid minimizes the amount of water needed by recirculating available moisture to continually baste the food, thereby locking in flavour and nutrients. The success of this method of cooking depends upon efficient heat control, so take the time to experiment with your new Anolon Professional Hard Anodized cookware. Learn the temperature settings on your cooker and lower the heat after the first few minutes of cooking so no steam escapes. Cooking Meats - High temperatures make meat tough, it should only be necessary for brief pre-heating or for browning certain cuts of meat. Even tougher cuts of meat remain juicy and tender when cooked at medium-to-low temperatures. Cooking Vegetables - Before cooking root or dried vegetable, bring the water to boil, then place in a pan. Remember the amount of water needed to cook vegetables can be considerably reduced, whilst maintaining flavour, colour and nutrients. Oven Cooking Anolon Professional Hard Anodized is completely oven safe for use at oven temperatures up to 350˚F/180˚C or Gas Mark 4 when using the glass lid and 475˚F/240˚C or Gas Mark 9 when cooking without the lid. This means you can start a dish on top of the stove and finish cooking it in the oven without having to change pans. Use Anolon Professional Hard Anodized for braising, casseroling, slow-cooking, even baking. Just remember to use oven gloves when removing the pan from the oven. Heat Tempered Glass Lids The heat tempered, break resistant domed glass lids provide see-through cooking convenience and are close fitting to create an environment in which natural flavours, nutrients and textures are preserved to the optimum. The lid minimizes the amount of water needed-ideal for health conscious, low water/low fat cuisine. Do not place the heat tempered glass lids directly on a hot burner as they will lose their breakage-resistant quality. The heat tempered glass lids may fog at the start of cooking, but will clear as the lids become warm. The lid handles are attached with a screw fitting. Periodically, check and retighten to be sure the handles are not loose.
