Quick Answer

How one cleans Cuisinart cookware depends on the type of product. Some collections contain dishwasher-safe cookware, while others must be washed by hand.

Full Answer

For all cookware, let it cool before hand-washing. Use a soft cloth or sponge for cleaning. Avoid using any abrasive products, such as a steel-wool pad, because it can damage the finish on the cookware. Squirt a couple of drops of mild dish-washing liquid in a sink of warm water. Wipe the inside and outside of the cookware with the cloth or sponge until it is clean. Rinse in cold water; and, either let it air dry, or dry it with a clean, lint-free cloth.

If there are stains on the outside of the cookware, use an oven cleaner to help remove them. For stains inside the pan, use special products designed for cookware to prevent damage. If the cookware loses its overall shine, wash it in vinegar to restore its brightness.
