Swiss Diamond cookware is designed to provide you with a lifetime of next-to-none nonstick cookware performance and proper maintenance and cleaning is a very important part of making sure that these quality pans do just that. As always, it is very important to follow proper maintenance procedures as failure to follow these will void your Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Medium to Low Heat Only: Swiss Diamond Cookware is designed in such a way that the use of extremely high heat settings is never required. These pans are designed to provide excellent thermal conductivity between the heat source and the cookware piece and the use of high heat settings can actually cause damage to the cookware. Swiss Diamond recommends starting out at a medium heat setting and making minor adjustments as needed to achieve the perfect heat level. Always make sure to place your pan on the exact center of the heating element. CAUTION: Overheating your Swiss Diamond cookware WILL cause irreparable damage to your cookware and void your Limited Lifetime Warranty
To allow for proper expansion of the materials in the pan as it heats and to ensure a very evenly heated cooking surface, Swiss Diamond recommends that you preheat the cookware for two to three minutes before adding any food.
In order to test the readiness of the pan, you simply need to sprinkle a few drops of water across the surface of the pan and take note of the reaction that occurs. Sizzling and beading of the water indicates that the cookware is prepared for use and that the pan should be heated no further. If the water instantly vaporizes this indicates that the cookware is too hot and that the temperature should be reduced and the pan re-tested in two to three minutes. Again, it is VERY important to not overheat your cookware as this will cause damage and void your Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Swiss Diamond pans have been designed from the bottom up to NOT be used with any sort of oil or spray. The special nonstick surface is designed to keep food from sticking to it for a lifetime. If you do decide to utilize an oil for cooking, it is very important to ALWAYS use it at the manufacturer’s recommended heat setting to avoid damage to your cookware. For Example: Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Butter should only ever be used over a LOW heat setting.CAUTION:Non Stick cooking sprays should never be used as they will damage the non-stick surface of the cookware and void your Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The integrity of the non-stick surface in your Swiss Diamond cookware can be easily compromised if the wrong utensils are used during cooking. Any metal utensil or utensil with a sharp point or edge should never be used as it may scratch and damage the nonstick cooking surface of your cookware. You should also avoid chopping, cutting, or use of any electric whisk or beater during cooking as it may also damage the nonstick cooking surface of your cookware. Swiss Diamond recommends the use of only Silicone or Wooden cooking utensils as these will not harm the non-stick cooking surfaces of your special cookware.
All Swiss Diamond cookware is designed to be oven safe up to 500°F (260°C), this includes the lids included with many pieces and the ergonomic serving handles present on many pieces.
Swiss Diamond are designed to be 100% dishwasher safe but it is recommended that you hand wash your pans to ensure that they do not get scraped or dinged while inside the dishwasher. Swiss Diamond recommends that before you use each piece of cookware for the first time (and after each successive use) that you thoroughly wash them with hot, very soapy water. It is important to never use oven cleaners or any sort of abrasive pads or detergents on your cookware as this will damage the non-stick cooking surface and void your warranty.
When Swiss Diamond cookware has not been cleaned properly after each use a thin layer of food residue may form on the pan and will carbonize the next time that the pan is used, food will stick to this carbonized layer and hinder the performance of your cookware.
If cabinet space requires that you stack your Swiss Diamond cookware, it is recommended that you use a paper towel between each pan in order to prevent scratches to the non-stick cooking surfaces.
