Maintaining a Tefal pan properly can extend its life and maintain its non-stick performance. Here are some general guidelines for caring for your Tefal pan:

  1. Cooling Down: Always let the pan cool before cleaning to prevent warping.
  2. Cleaning: For daily cleaning, hand wash your Tefal pan with warm soapy water using a sponge or a soft brush. Although many Tefal pans are dishwasher safe, hand washing is recommended to preserve the non-stick coating’s effectiveness.
  3. Utensils: Use wooden or special plastic utensils designed for non-stick cookware to avoid scratching the surface. Metal utensils should be avoided.
  4. Avoid Overheating: Never heat an empty Tefal non-stick pan as it can damage the non-stick coating over time. Tefal pans with Thermo-Spot technology indicate when the pan has reached the ideal cooking temperature to start cooking.
  5. Storage: When stacking pans, it’s a good idea to place a protective layer (like a pan protector or a soft cloth) between them to prevent scratches.
  6. Non-stick Coating Care: If the non-stick coating starts to stick, clean the pan thoroughly to remove any food residue and then condition the surface by lightly rubbing a cooking oil over the non-stick surface before the next use.
  7. Minor Repairs: If minor scratches appear, they usually don’t affect the pan’s performance. However, if the coating is severely damaged, it’s time to consider replacing the pan to ensure safety and optimal cooking results.

Following these maintenance tips will help ensure that your Tefal pan remains in good condition, providing you with excellent non-stick performance for a longer time.
