“Even with simple or less intensive use of cookware and baking utensils, you don’t have to do without high quality coatings. This is why we developed the ILAG Essential series.”
The coating for normal use
The systems of the ESSENTIAL range are selected coating series for easy use. Essential thereby represents the low-cost entry level.
Coatings from the ESSENTIAL range are suitable for all applications from cookware to bakeware.
Coatings for cookware are one-layer systems based on PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) with good non-stick properties and high resistance to abrasion.
Coatings for baking moulds and roaster trays are single-layer silicon-polyester systems. They are characterised by good surface hardness together with good scratch and cleaning properties.
Instructions for use
Remove the packaging and all labels before using for the first time. Clean the objects with liquid detergent and hot water, and lightly oil or grease them.
Never heat up objects when they are empty; overheating must be avoided. A drop of oil can serve as a temperature indicator to detect overheating.
Baking moulds and roaster trays should not be used on the hotplate, but are exclusively intended for use in the oven.
Before using for the first time, clean the objects with liquid detergent and hot water.
The object can later be cleaned with hot water, detergent and a sponge, or with the fine side of a rinsing sponge. A soft rinsing brush can also be used to clean the object.
In general, non-stick coated objects are cleaned in the dishwasher, although this is not recommended. If the object will nevertheless be washed in a dishwasher, we would recommend re-oiling or re-greasing before using it again.
Under no circumstances should the objects be cleaned with the abrasive side of a rinsing sponge or with a metal scouring pad. The non-stick coating will be scratched, and can be destroyed. The non-stick effect reduces considerably in poorly cleaned objects, and the coating will be destroyed.
Long service life
Overheating can lead to discoloration and will destroy the non-stick coating.
All coatings are sensitive to scratches and cuts. Small scratches are visible, but do not lead to deterioration in performance.
You should therefore only use nylon or wooden utensils in order not to damage the surface seal.
The use of small quantities of fat and oil will considerably extend the service life.
Never heat up an empty pan, in particular with induction hobs. The critical temperatures can be quickly reached. Overheating can lead to the following effects:
- Reduction of the non-stick effect
- Separation of the coating
The pan can be heated up to 230 °C in long-term use, and up to 250 °C over a short-term (according to the BfR recommendation).
The ILAG company is a manufacturer of high-quality non-stick coatings. For questions with regard to the pan or the baking moulds or roaster trays, as well as the associated accessories, please contact the manufacturer of the corresponding objects.
