NOTE: For added protection and secure handling of any Cuisinart® product that is being returned, we recommend you use a traceable, insured delivery service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for in-transit damage or for packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are not covered under warranty. California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents have the option of returning a nonconforming product either to the store where purchased or to another retail store which sells similar Cuisinart® products. The retailer then has the option to repair or replace the product, refer to an independent repair facility, or refund the purchase price (deducting for depreciation attributable to consumer’s use of the product). If none of these options results in appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility, provided service is economically feasible. Cuisinart and not the consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty. Gourmet ™ GreenGourmet Green Hard Anodized Eco-Friendly Nonstick Cookware Use and Care Guide California residents may also, at their preference, return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary, replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center.

Designed from the inside out for today’s eco-conscious chef, GreenGourmet™ Cookware combines uncompromising, superior cooking performance with an eco-friendly sensibility. We guarantee you a lifetime of healthy cooking with your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware. BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME Remove all labels. Wash cookware by hand in warm water with a mild dish soap. Rinse thoroughly in warm water and wipe dry with a soft dish towel. HEALTHY COOKING, EASY CLEANING When cooking with your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware, you do not need to add oil or butter to prevent foods from sticking. If you wish to enhance the flavor and appearance of foods, you need add only a minimum amount to the nonstick surface of your cookware. energy-efficient COOKING Select a burner size that matches the diameter of the bottom of the pan. When cooking over a gas burner, make certain that the flame touches only the bottom of the pan. If the flame extends up the sides of the pan, energy is wasted. ESSENTIAL PRECAUTIONS Never use Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware on high heat or food will burn. The aluminum core of this cookware heats quickly and its even heat distribution prevents hot spots. We recommend using a low to medium setting for most cooking. To boil water, medium-high is sufficient. Never leave Cuisinart® Cookware or any pan empty over a hot burner. Doing so can ruin the pan and void the warranty, and cause damage to the stovetop. OVEN COOKING TEMPERATURE Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware can be used in the oven up to 500°F. Cookware is broiler safe. Using Cuisinart® Cookware in the oven will cause the handles as well as the pan to become hot. Use oven mitts when removing the cookware from the oven. PROPER COOKING UTENSILS We recommend using plastic or wooden utensils in your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware to maintain its appearance and performance. Refrain from cutting foods or using sharp utensils such as forks, knives, mashers or whisks that can scratch the cooking surface. Slight surface marks and abrasions are normal and will not affect the performance of the Cuisinart Ceramica™ coating. A n o d i z e d C o o k w a r e EASY MAINTENANCE Let your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware cool before cleaning. Cookware should be washed by hand with hot sudsy water and a sponge, Dobie® pad or soft dishcloth. Do not use steel wool or other metal or abrasive pads that can scratch your cookware. After washing, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. NOTE: Do not put GreenGourmet™ Cookware in the dishwasher, since harsh detergents will harm it. CLEaning the exterior Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware has a smooth exterior finish, making it easier to clean and maintain. Food residue or buildup on the exterior of your cookware can easily be removed with hot soapy water and a scrub pad. The exterior of Cuisinart® Cookware, like other brands, will show wear with continuous use. This condition will not in any way affect the superior cooking performance of your cookware. CONVENIENT STORAGE Hanging pans by their handles on a Cuisinart® cookware rack provides convenient, safe storage for your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ Cookware. Use care if you store your cookware in cabinets or drawers. Careless stacking and crowding may cause scratches or chipping of the ceramic interior surface. DURABLE COOKWARE FOR A LIFETIME OF GREAT MEALS With a little bit of care, you’ll enjoy a great performance from your Cuisinart® GreenGourmet™ cookware for years to come. A careful hand washing after each use is usually all it takes. But if pans become crusty or heavily greased, a couple of hours soaking in hot sudsy water and a light scrub with a Dobie® pad will have them looking like new. Seasoning your pans twice a year helps to maintain optimal performance, and it’s easy! Just add a half-tablespoon of vegetable oil and spread it around the entire interior, right up to the rim. Then place the pan in a preheated 300°F oven for an hour. Carefully remove the pan, allow it to cool completely, and wipe off any excess oil with a paper towel. Be gentle with your cookware! Avoid stacking, which may cause chipping of the ceramic interior. Show it off on a Cuisinart® cookware rack, or store it carefully, with a little breathing room, in your kitchen cabinets.
