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

Een keramische pan gaat het langst mee als je geen metalen voorwerpen in de pan gebruikt. Deze tasten de keramische laag aan. Zorg ervoor dat je de pan na gebruik met de hand reinigt. Een vaatwasmachine gebruikt vaak behoorlijk agressieve schoonmaakmiddelen die de keramische laag én het handvat aantasten. Spoel de pan direct na het bakken af met warm water en gebruik eventueel een zachte spons of borstel. Droog de pan af met een zachte doek. Is je pan verkleurd? Kook er dan af en toe een water-azijn mengsel in, zodat die weer blinkend schoon wordt.
