HOW DO I CARE FOR MY SKK COOKWARE?
To maintain the attractive appearance and cooking efficiency of your SKK cookware, scrub thoroughly with a brush and hot soapy water immediately after use. This ensures that cleaning your SKK cookware is quick and easy. After washing your SKK product, we recommend wiping out your pan again with a little oil and a kitchen towel. Burned in food can be removed with a bit of detergent and a soft nylon sponge. We do not recommend washing your SKK cookware in a dishwasher because the detergents used in modern machines are becoming increasingly aggressive and they can damage the non-stick surface. It will then lose its non-stick effect. In time, the centre of the cooking surface will take on a slightly brown appearance. This is normal and no attempt should be made to remove this as it does not influence the cooking efficiency of your SKK product. SKK cookware was developed for cooking - not for storing food. Therefore, it should be cleaned immediately after use.
HOW DO I USE MY SKK COOKWARE?
Put a little oil in your pan and heat at maximum power for a short time. Because SKK pans heat up very quickly, keep the heat switched down to medium and place your food into the pan. Now you can cook food while retaining its nutrients without overheating your pan. For cooking, put water into a pot and bring it to a boil as usual. Add your food and cook as desired.
ADVICE FOR FATS AND OILS
According to Stiftung Warentest 2/1988 (an independent consumer-protection foundation in Germany), empty pans made of hand cast aluminium reach a temperature of approx. 300 °C after just three minutes when heated at the highest level. Fats can burn extremely fast at these high temperatures, creating “tar resin” that can burn into the surface coating. Once this happens the tar resin can no longer be removed and the non-stick surface properties are impaired. In general, never heat up fats and oils to the smoke point. Doing so releases acrolein, a harmful substance.
The following table shows the smoke point (fats begin to burn at this point) of various fats:
|Product||Smoke point °C|
|Peanut oil (refined = hot-pressed)||230|
|Peanut oil (unrefined = cold-pressed)||170|
|Palm kernel oil||220|
|Most refined oils||> 200|
|Cold-pressed rapeseed oil||130 - 190|
|Cold-pressed olive oil||130 - 175|
|Sunflower oil (refined)||210 - 225|
|Sunflower oil (unrefined)||107|
|Sesame oil (unrefined)||177|
Please note: Dietary fats and margarines and most native or cold-pressed oils (e.g. native safflower or sunflower oil) are generally not suitable for frying! Always observe the manufacturer's specifications on the packaging.
