- Although Stoneware is dishwasher safe, hand washing with warm soapy water and a nylon scrub brush is recommended to preserve the cookware's original appearance. Citrus juices and citrus-based cleaners (including some dishwasher detergents) should not be used, as they can dull the exterior gloss. It is not harmful and will not impair the cooking performance. however, the use of these products is not covered by our warranty.
- If necessary, use nylon pads or scrapers to remove food residue; metal pads or utensils will scratch the surface.
Please note a small amount of staining is to be expected with stoneware and does not affect performance.
