Say 'no' to boring cookware and bring some colour into your kitchen with our brand-new Enamel Series. These stylish and durable pots and pans are made for serious chefs and homemade foodies alike. We want to create something that was tough, beautiful and affordable, but we also wanted to make sure that they are practical to use and easy to keep clean. Read on for some handy tips on keeping your Enamel Series cookware clean and how to best maintain it, and discover which dishes are tailor-made for these pots and pans.
1. SOAP, RINSE, REPEAT
Prep your pots and pans by washing them with warm, soapy water before you use them for the first time.
Tip: Stick to washing by hand so you don’t risk discolouring or chipping your cookware in the dishwasher.
2. SAY ‘NO’ TO SHARP OBJECTS
Using sharp utensils in your enamel pots and pans is a huge no-no. Don’t stir with steel spoons or try lifting food using a fork. Only use hard plastic, silicone or wooden cooking accessories.
Tip: Don’t cut veggies or other ingredients directly on the surface of the cookware as it could chip.
3. BURN, BABY! BURN!
You can use our entire enamel cookware range on any heat source; braai, camping equipment, oven or stovetop.
Tip: You can prepare entire feasts on your braai or camping equipment on weekends away with your family, or simply cook up a storm in the oven at home.
4. SAFE AND SOUND
No one likes a chipped pot or pan, storing them in the right place will ensure that they not only stay dust-free but also chip-less. Don’t stack them in any way, that puts them at risk of serious chipping.
Tip: Keep the original box you got it in for storage use.
5. COOKING CATASTROPHE
You leave your sauce cooking away for five seconds and come back to burnt disaster. To remove it without damaging your cookware let it soak in very hot, soapy water before using a soft sponge to wipe it away.
Tip: Remember that non-stick surfaces should always be coated with cooking oil after every use to condition them for the next time.
6. HANDLE WITH CARE
You’ll want to keep these pots and pans away from any potential knocks or bumps as it can easily be damaged when accidentally dropped or pushed against a hard surface.
Tip: If you have toddlers or small children that like to play around and open kitchen cupboards, keep your cookware up high and out of reach.
