Cleaning Silverstone Cookware

While nonstick cookware has become more and more popular over the past twenty to thirty years, not many people really know how to keep these items clean. In fact, one of the more popular choices in nonstick cookware goes by the name of Silverstone, and is designed to make your cooking as easy as possible. There is one thing to keep in mind about these popular cooking implement though—they can be just a tad expensive to replace all the time. Considering that a Silverstone set of pans can cost at a minimum of $83.00, it only makes sense that cleaning Silverstone cookware properly should be a priority. Here are some helpful guidelines that should make that task a little easier.

  • Read the owners manual. Before you begin cleaning your Silverstone cookware, make sure that you are completely familiar with the owners' manual that came with your set. While you should be able to do some basic cleaning, you will want to double check to make sure that you can place it into a dish washing machine. The reason for this is rather simple; unfortunately there are a few cases where if you try to wash certain types of Silverstone cookware that should not be placed in a dishwasher or you could inadvertently void the warranty that came with it.
  • Wash thoroughly. Whether you need to wash your Silverstone cookware by hand or with the help of a dishwasher, you need to make sure that you use the right kind of cleaning agent. Stick with a mild soap, preferably with liquid detergent. If you do have to wash everything by hand, then you need to avoid rough materials to do the cleaning, or you can inadvertently cause damage to your pots and pans. When possible, you should simply allow your cookware to air dry.
  • Avoid abrasives. Abrasive materials can do a wonderful job of scraping things off of pots and pans, including the nonstick coating. This means that you need to avoid actually scraping the pots and pans, and if at all possible avoid using anything abrasive in connection with them.
  • Completely remove any and all oils. A common ingredient when cooking is a wide variety of oils, all of which will need to be removed when you are cleaning. If you do not properly remove these when you are doing your cleaning then the oils will begin to buildup. Not only is this a health and fire hazard, it can also make the nonstick coating work not quite as well as possible.
