Pots and stockpots– a must-have in every kitchen

How to take care of your pots?
Do you know that most people buy a set of pots only two or three times during their hole life? We sometimes tend to buy a car more often than pots! This is why it’s worth investing in high-quality pots and enjoying their functionality for years to come and every time you cook. And if you invest money in high-quality cookware, you should also make sure you take care of your pots in a proper way. How to take care of your pots?
- always read the manufacturer’s instructions before the first use and make sure you don’t put your pots into a dishwasher if it’s not recommended,
- don’t use metal utensils that may scratch the surface of your pots, use wood or silicone kitchen utensils instead,
- avoid leaving dirty pots overnight or soaking them for a long time (especially stainless steel pots),
- if you want to get rid of stains on the surface of your stainless steel pots, clean them with a stainless steel cleaning product,
- avoid cleaning your ceramic-coated pots with steel wool,
- clean your iron pots immediately after using and don’t use soap because metal is porous and it can absorb the flavour of the chemicals,
- avoid temperature shock, don’t put hot pots into cold water, etc.,
- don’t cook acidic foods (like tomato) in cast-iron cookware,
- don't stack coated pots and pans on top of each other as this may cause scratching and chipping. Hang them on hooks or put them on their sides.
