Rinse in hot water and dry thoroughly. Placing pots on low heat for one or two minutes before adding foods. Preheat pot or pan for one to two minutes over low or medium heat. To avoid the formation of small white dots or pits, bring liquids to a boil before adding salt, then stir well. Or, add salt after food has started to cook. Pitting does not interfere with cooking performance but can diminish the beauty of the stainless steel. To prevent water spotting, after washing, rinse in hot water and dry immediately. Overheating can cause brown or blue stains to appear. Food films, if not removed, will cause discoloration on the pot when it is reheated. Large amounts of iron content in your water may cause your pot to look rusty. To remove tarnish and darkening, use a commercial aluminum cleaner. Rub in a circular motion. Rinse in lukewarm water.
