Over the past few decades, cooking with nonstick cookware has become increasingly popular. Nonstick surfaces make cooking easy because cooking sprays and oils that are needed on regular cookware are not required. With nonstick cookware, food won't stick even with the absence of sprays and oils. After cooking, food cooked in a nonstick pan should slide off the surface easily.

Silverstone is one kind of nonstick surface that is used on cookware. This surface, which is actually three layers that cover the cookware, protects and allows for easy, nonstick cooking.

Silverstone makes cooking more convenient, you should take care of your nonstick cookware and keep certain things in mind when you clean them. Proper maintenance ensures that your cookware will still work well and look great for years to come, and part of this maintenance involves how you clean your cookware.

To clean Silverstone cookware, remember these tips:

  • Don't scrape. Don't scrub or scrape your Silverstone cookware with abrasive sponges or scrapers. Be sure you use cleaning tools that won't scratch or damage the surface. Although Silverstone is durable, it can be scratched and the appearance of the cookware will be less attractive. Scratches shouldn't alter the effectiveness of the coating, but over time your cookware could start to look worn out and dull.
  • Read the warranty. Check the warranty on your cookware, and be sure that it is okay to wash your nonstick pots and pans in the dishwasher. Often it is safe, but in some cases washing your cookware pieces in the dishwasher could harm them and void your warranty.
  • Wash. A safe way to wash your nonstick cookware is with mild soap and warm or hot water. Using a nonabrasive sponge or washcloth, wash and rinse the cookware carefully by hand. Dry with a cloth or let the cookware air dry in a place where it won't come into contact with anything that might scratch it.
  • Store. To avoid scratches or damage, you may want to store your Silverstone cookware hanging up in your kitchen.
  • Cooking oil. If you use any oil to cook with your cookware, make sure to thoroughly wash it off after cooking. After a while, cooking oils can build up and get cooked into the cookware, causing the nonstick coating to work less effectively.

Silverstone cookware is quite easy to care for and cook with, and with just a little work you can keep your cookware looking new and working well for a long time.

I love my Silverstone skillet, but as I'm using it, the color on the inside has gone from a silver-like finish to a light orangeish-tan color. Would this have anything to do with the flavor of foods that are prepared? Is there a way I can get it back to it's regular color?
