Care and Cleaning Instructions for Stainless Steel 360 Cookware

As with any new stainless steel cookware set, always wash before first use.

Clean after every use 

Wash your cookware in warm soapy water with a sponge, dishcloth or plastic pad. Your cookware can also be cleaned in an automatic dishwasher.

Removing heat tints and food stains

Gold brown or blue heat tints may result from persistent overheating and/or mineral residue. (Sulfur-dried fruits should be cooked with the cover removed to prevent staining.) To clean, make a paste with water and a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner such as Americraft Stainless Steel Cleaner. If you do not have our cleaner, you can simply use baking soda. DO NOT USE A CLEANER THAT CONTAINS CHLORINE BLEACH. Apply paste with a sponge or cloth to cookware while it is still warm and rub lightly in one direction. Wash again, rinse and dry.

Removing minor scratches

During the first few times of use, bright metal marks may appear on the inside of stainless steel cookware. Remove with a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner following the steps above. Avoid hitting metal kitchen tools against the rims of stainless cookware, and do not cut or chop foods against the stainless steel surface. Any metal will scratch if gouged.

Special tips for using salt 

Although stainless steel is very durable, it is not indestructible. Pitting may result if un-dissolved salt is allowed to remain in the bottom of a pan. Do not allow acidic foods or foods that have been seasoned to remain in your 360 Cookware for long periods of time.
