Cooking with Tri-Ply
Start with low or medium heat
Thanks to the construction of our cookware, we recommend starting with low or medium heat. You Abbio pans distribute heat evenly throughout the pan, and you will rarely need the highest setting. In fact, too much heat and you might burn your food.
Use the water test!
Use the water-drop test to know when your pan is hot enough for oil. When you start to feel heat radiate off the pan (don't touch it!), sprinkle in a few droplets of water. You want them to combine together and dance around the pan. If they don't form into balls, your pan is not hot enough.
Don't be afraid of oil
A little bit of oil or fat will help keep food from sticking to your stainless pan. Add it after your pan is already warm and be ready to go with your next ingredient. It will only take a few seconds for the oil to come to temperature.
Let things cool
Let your cookware cool to room temperature before attempting to clean. Running cold water over a hot pan will make it harder to remove the food scraps. Set your pans to the side after you cook and go eat. They’ll be cool by cleaning time.
Wash with warm water, soap, and plastic brush or sponge. Avoid using abrasive scrubbers like metal scouring pads or steel wool, as they can scratch the surface of your cookware.
But what if there are crusties?
Fill you pot or pan with enough soapy water to cover the stuck food. Then put the pan back on the burner and bring it to a boil. Take the pan off the burner, let the liquid cool and scrub with a nylon dish scrubber or brush.
Cooking with Nonstick
Easy on the heat
Abbio non-stick is also tri-ply. It has an aluminum layer sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel for heat conductivity and durability. No need to turn the stove all the way up to cook a perfect chicken breast.
Avoid aerosol cooking sprays
Don't use oils or sprays from a can. They contain other chemicals that actually stick to the non-stick surface and turn into a gunky mess over time. Stick with the classics - oil or butter.
Use silicone or wooden utensils
When cooking with Abbio non-stick, stay away from your metal spatulas and tongs. The surface will scratch over time if you use abrasive cooking utensils.
Let your cookware cool to room temperature. Running cold water over a hot pan can cause it to warp over time. After the pan has cooled, wash it with warm water, soap, and gentle brush or sponge.
My pan has lost that new pan shine
Lightly wet the outside your cookware. Then sprinkle the surface with a bleach-free cleaner like Bar Keepers Friend or just baking soda from your cabinet. Rub the paste into the cookware with a sponge or nylon scrubbing pad. Rinse with soap water and dry with a clean cloth.
My nonstick is sticky!
When you've used your non-stick cookware hundreds of times and eggs are not sliding around like they used it, there's still hope. It turns out you can season your non-stick cookware and bring back some of the slippery-ness.
