Care and Cleaning
Before first use, wash in hot soapy water, rinse, and towel dry.
Keep your stainless cookware looking beautiful by soaking in hot soapy water after use. Then wash, rinse and hand dry. Chantal is dishwasher safe, but hand drying is recommended for a spotless shine.
Note: Everyday use may result in minor scratching; this will not interfere with cooking performance.
Do not use steel wool, scouring pads, oven cleaners, bleach, or strong abrasive cleaners.
Occasionally buff with Cameo© aluminum/stainless cleaner for a "like new" luster.
It is okay to use your metal utensils, but do not use knives or electric beaters.
To prevent sticking, spray pan with nonstick cooking spray or add a small amount of oil, margarine, or butter to a cold pan. Heat on medium temperature for one to two minutes before adding food.
Be sure your cooking surface is level. Burners and stoves that are not level may cause fats to pool: pooled fats and oils do not adequately cover cooking surfaces.
Clean pan thoroughly after each use. Food films cause sticking and discoloration on the pan when pan is reheated.
Sticking may also be caused by high heat. When fats or oils smoke, the heat is too high.
To avoid salt damage (small white dots or pits), add salt after food begins to cook or after liquids begin to boil. Pitting does not interfere with cooking performance, but it can diminish the beauty of the stainless steel.
Do not store foods seasoned with salt in cookware.
Never let liquids boil dry, the extreme temperatures can cause irreparable damage to your cookware.
Do not preheat Chantal empty.
Overheating or allowing gas flames to come up the sides of pan can cause brown/blue discoloration. A low to medium heat setting is all you need for most cooking applications (except for boiling water).
For best results, use a burner smaller in diameter than the pan.
High iron content in water can cause pan to appear rusty.
Additional Care and Cleaning for Nonstick Surfaces.
Before first use, lightly run cooking oil into nonstick surface.
Use plastic or wooden utensils. Never cut food in the pan or use electric beaters.
All nonstick will scratch, because it's a soft surface. Silverstone© Select is guaranteed not to peel, chip, crack, blister or bubble when used according to Chantal use and care instructions.
Daily dishwasher use will diminish the properties of any nonstick. If you use the dishwasher occasionally, wipe pan with cooking oil before use.
Note: Automatic dishwashing is harmful to all nonstick surfaces. Our warranty does not cover dishwasher damage to the nonstick surface.
It is not necessary nor recommended to soak cookware in water for an
extended time. For the occasional dried-on or burnt food, scrub with
