How do I use a ceramic pan?

A ceramic pan is a pan with a layer of ceramic on the inside. The ceramic layer forms the non-stick coating. The ceramic pan has a different instruction manual than a pan with a standard non-stick coating. In this article, we explain how you use and maintain the ceramic pan, so that you can enjoy it for a long time.

For use

Before use, wash the pan with some washing-up liquid and a soft sponge or brush. Then dry the pan well and put it on the stove with a layer of oil. Heat the oil on low heat. The oil is hot when it is bubbling. Then turn off the heat and let the oil cool completely. Then rinse the pan clean with water and dry it off. The pan is now ready for use.

A ceramic non-stick coating is resistant to temperatures up to 400℃. On the other hand, it's not necessary to set the heat source very high. Ceramic distributes the heat evenly and holds it well. This switches the heat source back when the pan is up to temperature. The ceramic non-stick coating is very smooth. This makes it appear that butter or oil is not necessary. However, we recommend that you use this. The ingredients burn without butter or oil.

Get used to it

A ceramic non-stick coating is a lot smoother than a standard non-stick coating. This means it takes some getting used to baking in a ceramic pan. You notice this when you bake potatoes. It takes longer for the outside to be crispy, while the inside is already cooked. To get a good understanding of how to use the pan, we recommend frying an egg a few times. Play with the amount of butter or oil and with the temperature.

Maintenance

Do not use metal objects in the pan to prevent scratches and damage to the non-stick coating. After use, clean the pan by hand. Let the pan cool down or rinse it with warm water. Scrub grease and food scraps with some washing-up liquid and a soft sponge or brush. Then dry the pan with a tea towel. Has the pan been discolored? Then boil some water and vinegar to get it shiny again.
