Enamel on Steel

Use and Care Guide


Congratulations on your purchase of Cuisinart® Chef’s Classic™ Enamel on Steel Stockpot! Designed from the inside out for today’s lifestyles, our Cuisinart® Cookware combines uncompromising superior cooking performance with a professional look.
Follow the suggestions in this booklet to preserve and maintain the cookware’s original beauty.

Before First Use
Remove all labels and hang tags. Wash cookware with mild dish soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry immediately with a
soft dishtowel or you may place cookware in the dishwasher.
Stovetop Use
Always use a low-medium heat setting. To boil water, a medium-high heat setting is sufficient. The interior enameled surfaces must be treated and are not suitable for dry cooking: select either oil, butter or a cooking spray to completely cover the stockpot’s the inside base before heating begins. Always use potholders to grip side handles or cover knobs, as they will become hot. Never leave pans unattended at any time while cooking. Never leave an empty pan over a hot burner; doing so could ruin the cookware and cause damage to the stovetop.
Oven Use
Enamel on steel stockpots and covers are oven safe to 350°F. Caution should be used when handling any cookware handles. Always use
potholders to grip side handles or cover knobs, as they will become hot.

Cooking Utensils
To protect and preserve the surface of the stockpot, use only wooden, plastic, or heat-resistant nylon kitchen tools to avoid scratching
the enamel interior. We do not recommend using metal utensils, as they may scratch the stockpot’s surface.
Cleaning and Other Maintenance
Allow your stockpot to cool slightly first after each use, then fill the pan with warm water and a liquid dish detergent; let soak. Do not fill a hot pan with cold water or plunge into cold water because thermal shock damage to the enamel may occur. Use a sponge or a soft cloth to remove any remaining food particles. Do not use steel wool or other metal pads that make coarse scratches. Rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. If preferred, cookware may be cleaned in the dishwasher. Scrub pan edges gently to clean if there is any discoloration or residue. Food residue or buildup on your cookware can easily be removed with a non-abrasive cleanser, or a little warm vinegar may be used. Cover knobs may become loose over a period of time. We recommend checking them occasionally and tightening knobs as needed.
Do not store stockpots when they are still damp and always store them carefully in a dry cupboard area. Avoid stacking and overcrowding to prevent scratching and chipping of the enamel surface.

Your Cuisinart® Cookware is warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal home use from the date of original purchase throughout the original purchaser’s lifetime.

Or call our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-0190 to speak with a representative.
This warranty excludes damage caused by accident, misuse or abuse, including damage caused by overheating, and it does not apply to
scratches, stains, discoloration or other damage to external or internal surfaces which does not impair the functional utility of the cookware.
This warranty also expressly excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the foregoing limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents have the option of returning a nonconforming product (a) to the store where it was purchased or (b) to another retail store that sells Cuisinart® products of the same type. The retail store shall then, according to its preference, either repair the product, refer the consumer to an independent repair facility, replace the product, or
refund the purchase price less the amount directly attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If the above two options do not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility, if service or repair can be economically accomplished. Cuisinart, and not the consumer, will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their preference, return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or if
necessary, replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-0190. To obtain a return shipping label, email us
at www.cuisinart.com/customer-care/product-return. Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and shipping, and handling of such nonconforming products under warranty.
