Looking after your RACO cookware

When you first use one of our non-stick pans, it will work so well (and make clean up so easy) that you may think that all you need to do is wipe it out with a paper towel!

Though we would love for that to be the case, cleaning your pan thoroughly is really important to prevent a build-up of food over time that can cause damage to your non-stick. If grease particles are left on the non-stick surface, they can burn when the cookware is next heated, causing stains and scorching to your pan's interior, reducing the effectiveness of the non-stick surface.

Follow these simple steps to keep your pan looking beautiful and performing perfectly:

  • Carefully wipe off spills which occur during cooking immediately for easier clean up later.
  • Always allow cookware to cool down after use and before cleaning, by removing cookware from the heat source and letting it cool on a heat resistant surface or trivet.
  • Do not pour cold water into hot cookware as it may cause it to warp, or hot liquids to splatter
  • Before washing, carefully wipe out any food residue or grease particles with a paper towel.
  • Use a mesh pad specifically labelled as being suitable for non-stick surfaces, wash cookware thoroughly after use with mild dishwashing detergent and hot (not boiling) water to remove all traces of food or grease particles.
  • To store your cookware, we recommend stacking your cookware with a layer of paper towel between each pan, to prevent scratches.

Can I put my cookware in the dishwasher?

  • While some RACO cookware is dishwasher safe, we do recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your cookware.

I have food burnt onto my cookware. What can I do?

If your cookware has dried or burnt on food deposits that you can’t seem to clean off, try this simple solution to soften food before washing:

  • Partially fill the pan with three (3) parts water to one (1) part detergent or vinegar
  • Bring the pan to the boil.
  • Turn off the heat source and set aside for a period to cool.
  • Wash the pan with mild dishwashing detergent and hot (not boiling) water using a non-abrasive mesh pad.
