Designed from the inside out for today’s lifestyles, our Cuisinart Cookware combines uncompromising superior cooking performance with a professional look. We guarantee you a lifetime of healthy cooking with your Cuisinart Cookware. Cast iron is recognized as one of the best materials for cookware because of its ability to retain heat and provide even heat distribution. Care and Maintenance Oven Use: Pans are oven safe to 500°F. Caution should be used when handling any cookware handles. Always use potholders to grip side handles or cover knobs, as they will become hot. Servin Place hot pans on trivet or wooden board when serving. Never place a hot pan directly on an unprotected surface. Cooking Utensils: To protect and preserve the surface of the pans, use only wooden, plastic or heat-resistant nylon kitchen tools to avoid scratching the enamel interior. We do not recommend using metal utensils as they may scratch pan’s surface (but will not impair its performance). Do not cut food directly in the cookware. You may use hand blenders or mixers directly in the cookware; may scratch pan interiors, but pan’s performance will not be affected.
