Q & A

After I’ve lowered the heat and the seal has formed, can I lift the cover?

Peek if you must. After replacing the cover, spin it so that the Vapo-Valve clicks, indicating that it has resealed itself. If it does not increase the heat until the valve clicks then reduce the heat to low.

Can I put Saladmaster cookware in the dishwasher?

Yes. We recommend that the removable handles be hand washed as repeated washing in the dishwasher may dull the handles. We recommend that you avoid the heat-dry cycle of the dishwasher by using the energy-efficient air-dry cycle.

What if my range cooks at a higher temperature than normal?

If your lowest temperature setting is still too high, you may need to purchase a heat-reducing pad for your burner, such as the type used under glass coffee- pots on electric ranges.

Can I ever cook over high heat?

High heat may cause warping. Also, foods are more likely to stick or scorch over high heat, and cooking at a too high heat can cause food to shrink and become dry. It is okay, however, to bring large amounts of liquid to a boil, such as water for pasta, over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat after the boiling point has been reached.

Can I carve a roast in the pan?

To maintain your cookware’s finish, it is recommended that foods be removed to a cutting board for carving. Foods may be returned to your cookware for serving.

Why does the Vapo-Valve click as soon as I turn the heat on under a covered pan? Should I lower the heat at that time?

The Vapo-Valve is designed to click when the food or liquid inside the pan reaches approximately 187°F (86°C). Occasionally, slow clicking begins before the pan has been exposed to heat long enough to reach that level. When that happens, proceed as you would without the premature click. The click should stop as the heat rises. Once the temperature reaches approximately 187°F (86°C), the Vapo-Valve will click again. This time, the click will be more rapid and insistent, and it is time to reduce the heat to low.
