Hard-anodised cookware is made from aluminium that has been electrochemically hardened. These types of pots and pans are typically more durable than other non-stick cookware. This cookware also provides for more evenly distributed heat. You should not wash hard-anodised cookware in the dishwasher. Sometimes the lids may be dishwasher-safe; check with the manufacturer. The dishwasher may damage the hardened aluminium. Always wash your hard-anodised cookware by hand using a gentle cleaning technique.
Use warm, soapy water to clean your hard-anodised cookware. Wash it by hand using a non-abrasive sponge.
Soak stubborn food build-up in hot, soapy water. Then, rub it with a non-abrasive sponge.
Use a baking soda paste if that is insufficient to remove food build-up. Mix about 1/2 cup of baking soda with about 3 tbsp water. Apply the paste to difficult cleaning areas and allow it to work for about 15 to 20 minutes. Use a non-abrasive sponge to wipe off the paste.
Rinse the cookware thoroughly after washing and towel-dry with a clean cloth.
Wipe the lids of the cookware periodically. Dampen a clean cloth with either lemon juice or vinegar and wipe the lids with it. This helps them maintain their sheen.
