Advice on ceramic pans

A ceramic pan is a steel or aluminum pan with a ceramic coating. Ceramics have a different manual than a 'regular' non-stick coating. We're happy to explain how to use your ceramic pan and how to maintain it. That way, you can enjoy it for a long time.


  • Wash the pan with mild detergent and a soft sponge or brush
  • Properly dry the pan afterwards
  • Put the pan on the stove with a layer of natural oil
  • Let the oil slowly become hot on low heat
  • Turn off the heat and allow the oil to cool completely
  • Rinse the pan with water
  • Dry the pan
  • Your ceramic pan is now ready for use

Use of a ceramic pan

A ceramic pan can tolerate high temperatures, but that doesn't mean you have to put your heat source at full capacity. Use up to 75% of your heat source's power and raise it slowly. The ceramic coating distributes the heat quickly and evenly and also maintains it for a long time. Turn your heat source down when your pan is at the right temperature, otherwise the risk of burning is very high. A ceramic pan has a very smooth surface, but we still recommend using a greasy substance like oil or butter to reduce the risk of burning.

Maintenance of a ceramic pan

A ceramic pan lasts the longest if you don't use metal objects in the pan. These affect the ceramic coating. Make sure you clean the pan by hand after use. A dishwasher often uses pretty aggressive cleaning agents that damage the ceramic coating and the handle. Rinse the pan with warm water immediately after baking and use a soft sponge or brush if necessary. Dry the pan with a soft cloth. Is your pan discolored? Boil a water-vinegar mixture in it every now and then, so that it will shine clean again.
