Cookware Care

Tips and details for keeping Cutco cookware beautiful.

Daily Care


  • Wash Cookware in hot soapy water. Use a sponge or dishcloth, rinse thoroughly in hot water and dry promptly. Cutco Cookware is dishwasher safe, however, like all fine cookware, handwashing is recommended.
  • Clean thoroughly after each use. Food films left on the surface can cause discoloration when the cookware is heated the next time.
  • Avoid using excessively high heat. This can cause heat tints on stainless steel surfaces.
  • To remove heat discoloration, food stains and minor scratches: Use a cleaner such as Bar Keeper's Friend, or make a paste of water and a non-abrasive cleaner. Apply with a damp cloth or sponge and rub lightly in a circular motion. Rewash, rinse and dry promptly.
  • To remove burned-on or dried-on food: Let cookware cool, then fill part way with cold water and bring to a boil over medium heat. When food particles loosen, allow pan to cool and clean as usual.
  • DO NOT pour cold water into hot cookware. Extreme and sudden temperature changes can cause any metal to warp.
  • Cutco Cookware is designed for stove-top use. With the exception of the Gourmet Fry Pans and Griddle, we DO NOT recommend using your Cookware in the oven.
  • If food is left to cool in a covered pan after cooking, the cover may adhere tightly to the pan. Simply reheat to break the vapor seal.
  • Hanging loops offer a storage option. Take care when stacking your cookware to prevent scratching and marring.


  • Use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, oven cleaners or cleaners containing chlorine bleach.
  • Cut or chop food on the stainless steel surface.
  • Avoid hitting cookware with spoons, spatulas and other implements.
