XERADUR 2

c

One- or two-layer xerogel-based system with excellent non-stick performance in the chicken and egg test. Thanks to its considerably improved formulation, XERADUR 2 features low crack formation when subject to rapid temperature changes. Additional advantages of this ceramic coating include outstanding abrasion and corrosion resistance.

Ceramic Cookware - Use and Care Instructions

Important safety instructions

  • Make sure that the pans are never unattended or used near children.
  • Do not let the pan stand on a hot stove for longer than necessary.
  • To avoid injury, always be careful with handling hot pans.
  • Make sure that handles are never positioned above heated hotplates.
  • The Ceralon ® coating is PTFE-, PFOA-, and fluorine-free.

Notes on use

  • Before first use, remove all packaging and labels, and clean pan with dishwashing detergent and hot water.
  • Boil the pans 2-3 times with water to remove any production residues and contaminants.
  • Rub the inside of the pan with a little oil upon first use. This procedure should be repeated from time to time.
  • Save energy and make sure that the pan is the same size or bigger than, but never smaller than, the cooking surface. When using a gas oven, adjust the flame as such that it does not flare over the side edges of the pan.
  • The pan should by used to heat food without the use of either oil or fat.
  • The ceramic non-stick coating is very temperature-resistant, up to 400 °C. However, overheating the pan is not recommended.
  • The ceramic coatings heat up within a very short time, and can therefore never be left on the stove unattended.
  • Never overheat. Temperatures above 250°C should be avoided; this can be prevented by using some oil as a heat indicator, as oil begins to smoke at temperatures greater than 250°C.
  • Overheating should be avoided at all costs, as food can burn onto the (heat-resistant) ceramic coating and black deposits may remain on the coating.
  • For frying, we recommend medium temperature level and the use of some oil or cooking fat.
  • Do not allow oil to burn in the pan.
  • Never cut up food in the pan, using sharp, hard objects.
  • Use only nylon or wooden utensils.
  • Always use a clean pan when you begin cooking. Make sure that all cooking residues are removed before storing the pan.

Cleaning and care

  • Always cool the pan before cleaning, as large heat variations can cause permanent deformation.
  • For cleaning, use hot water and a non-abrasive sponge or soft nylon brush (do not use steel wool or scouring pads!).
  • Do not use any aggressive or abrasive cleaning agents to remove grease and food residue from the non-stick coating inside the pan.
  • Should dark deposits form on the coating due to high temperatures, do not remove them with a scouring pad or sharp-edged objects, but rather soak the pan in hot water and remove the deposits carefully and gently with a soft nylon brush or a soft cloth.
  • Food residues that are not removed can, with further use, lead to discolourations of varying severity, which can have a negative effect on the non-stick surface. Therefore, the surface should always be cleaned very carefully.
  • Slight discolouration and stains are normal and are easier to see against bright coatings than on dark or black surfaces.
  • Cleaning in a dishwasher may lead to a reduction in the non-stick properties caused by aggressive detergents, and so we recommend hand washing.
