Troubleshooting & FAQ's

The Issue: 
The lid won't come off the pot; got stuck on the countertop. 

The Reason: 
As the pans and lids cool, a vacuum will form rendering the lid unable to be removed. 

The Fix:
Simply place the pan over medium heat for a few minutes. The lid will lift off once the metals have warmed. 

Should your lid get stuck on your countertop or other surface, soak a dish towel in hot water, wring out excess water and place the dish towel over the lid. The heat from the damp towel should be sufficient to remove the lid from any flat surface. 

Note: Never place the lid flat on a glass cooktop. It may cause the glass to crack. When cooking, be mindful to not let the lid sit on any flat surface. 

 

The Issue:
I can't get the Vapor Seal to form; the lid isn't floating freely during cooking. 

The Reason:
Heat is too low (or off) or the pot is too large for the amount of food; vapors haven't been fully released by fools. 

The Fix:
Increase the heat to medium to re-engage the Vapor Seal then try cooking over medium-low. Be sure pot is at least two-thirds full. 

 

The Issue:
Excessive steam and spattering during cooking; liquid is pooling around the lid. 

The Reason:
Heat is too high; too much food in pot.

The Fix:
Remember to reduce the heat to low as soon as you see steam begin to escape from under the lid. If your burners run hot no matter how low you go, try using a Flame-Tamer which are available at many 
department stores. Be sure the cookware is no more than two-thirds full. 

 

The Issue:
Foods burn or stick to the pot; cooking vapors boil away durning cooking; persistent stains, blue tint or discoloration on the inside or outside of the cookware. 

The Reason:
Heat is too high or the lid is lifted too frequently during cooking. 

The Fix:
Remember to never heat cookware higher than medium heat (unless otherwise specified) and to reduce the heat to low once the Vapor Seal has formed. Discoloration is due to persistent overheating. Use one of our recommended cleaners to remove stains.
