n To Break A Vacuum Seal
The uniquely designed rims and covers form a perfect fit to
reduce the evaporation of liquids. If you leave the cover on after
turning the heat down or off, a partial vacuum may form that
will seal the lid to the pan. To break the seal, turn on the heat for
a few moments, and the cover will come off easily. If you don’t
want the lid to seal to the pan, remove the cover or set it slightly
ajar before turning off the heat.
n Convenient Storage
Store in original box or in cupboard with ample space for
convenient, safe storage.
Never use Cuisinart® Buffet Server on high heat. Food
will burn. The aluminum encapsulated base makes this
cookware highly conductive and efficient for quick, even heat
distribution. We recommend using a low to medium setting for
most cooking. To boil water, medium-high is sufficient. Never
leave your Cuisinart® Buffet Server or any pan empty over a
hot burner. Doing so can ruin the pan and cause damage to the
stovetop. Never use the warming stand on the stovetop or in
the oven. The warming stand is for use after the food has been
cooked. It can be used on the counter or tabletop to keep food
warm and to elevate the hot server from the surface. Read “How
to Use Warming Stand” section CAREFULLY before using
buffet pan with warming stand. Follow ALL instructions.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
n Before Using
Wash your new buffet pan in warm water with a mild soap or
dishwashing liquid, or in a dishwasher, before using for the first
time. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry immediately with a soft
dish towel. Do not place warming stand in dishwasher.
n How To Use Warming Stand
The warming stand for your Cuisinart® Buffet Server keeps
already cooked foods warm while serving. Before lighting
candles, place the warming stand in the location where you
will be serving. Prior to mounting the buffet pan, place two
smokeless, non-toxic, fragrance-free tea light candles* in candle
cup holders on warming stand base. Light both candles just
before use. Once candles are lit, carefully place Buffet Server
on warming stand for serving. Tea light candles vary in lifespan.
They can last anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on the
finished serving, extinguish candles. Be sure both the wax and
the server have cooled before removing the tea light candles.**
*IMPORTANT: ONLY standard-sized (1½" diameter)
tea light candles (wrapped in aluminum case) should
California residents need only supply proof of purchase and
should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping instructions. California
law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents
have the option of returning a nonconforming product (a) to the
store where it was purchased or (b) to another retail store which
sells Cuisinart® products of the same type. The retail store shall
then, according to its preference, either repair the product,
refer the consumer to an independent repair facility, replace the
product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly
attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If
either of the above two options does not result in the appropriate
relief to the consumer, the consumer may then take the product
to an independent repair facility if service or repair can be
economically accomplished. Cuisinart, and not the consumer,

replacement or refund for nonconforming products under
warranty. California residents may also, according to their

Use and Care Guide
Carbon spotting from candles will appear on bottom of buffet
pan after use on warming stand*. Carbon residue must be
cleaned off prior to placing in dishwasher. Dampen bottom,
sprinkle with baking soda and clean using a few drops of
dishwashing liquid. Bottom of pan should wipe clean.
*Note: Different brands of tea light candles will leave
different amounts of carbon.
n Easy Maintenance
Immediately after each use, fill the pan with hot water and
dishwashing liquid; let stand until lukewarm. Use a sponge or
soft cloth to remove any remaining food particles. Do not use
steel wool or other metal pads that make coarse scratches.
Rinse thoroughly and dry immediately. Cuisinart® Buffet Server
features oven-safe handles that can withstand oven temperatures
up to 550°F. Caution should be used when handling any cookware
handles; we recommend the use of potholders.
nWhat About The Dishwasher?
Cuisinart® Buffet Servers are dishwasher safe, but remember
that soil from other dishes may be abrasive. If the dishwasher is
carelessly packed, other dishes or flatware may mar the surface of
the cookware. Over a long period, regular dishwasher cleaning
will eventually scratch any utensil. We recommend using a nonlemon detergent. Do not place warming stand in dishwasher.
n What about Metal Utensils?
We recommend using plastic or wooden utensils with your
Cuisinart® Buffet Server. You may prefer using metal utensils.
These may scratch the cooking surface, but will in no way impair
the performance of your Cuisinart ® Buffet Server. You may use
a hand mixer with metal beaters which can scratch the interior
surface but will not impair the cookware’s performance or its
n To Remove Stains
Calcium in your water may leave a multicolored stain. This is a
harmless deposit and can be removed with a little warm vinegar.
Certain foods such as pasta or oatmeal may leave a light residue
or cloudy appearance. This can be easily removed with any of
these cleaning products: Bon Ami®, Cameo® Stainless Steel or
Metal Cleaner, Nevr-Dull®.
n To Remove Stubborn Residue
When food is burned in the pan, a stubborn black residue may
remain. If soaking does not loosen it, add water to a depth
of one inch in the pan, then add a tablespoon of dishwasher
detergent (a non-lemon product). Bring to a boil, reduce heat
and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool in the pan, then drain
and rinse. Loosen the residue with a sponge or plastic spatula.
Repeat if necessary. Caution: Detergent fumes can be irritating.
Carry out this procedure under a hood with an exhaust fan or in
a well-ventilated room. caution: Detergent fumes can be
irritating. Carry out this procedure under a hood with an

n To Remove Burner Stains
Stains on the outside bottom (not sides) of pans can be removed
with an oven cleaner. Follow the manufacturer’s directions and
spray or brush the cleaner on only the outside bottom of the
pan. If the directions call for using the cleaner in a warm oven,
heat the pan before applying the cleaner. Rinse thoroughly after
cleaning. important note: Cuisinart® Buffet Servers
have exceptionally high thermoconductivity, and even
a low setting on some gas burners will overheat or even
burn foods such as thinly sliced onions. An inexpensive gas
“flame-tamer” placed between the burner and the bottom
of the pot solves this problem. Flame-tamers are readily
available at most hardware stores.
n Cooking Over a Gas Burner
When cooking over a gas burner, make certain the flame touches
only the pan bottom. If the flame comes up the sides of the
pan, energy is wasted and the sides of the pan may become
permanently discolored.
n Cooking Temperature in Oven
Cuisinart® Buffet Servers can be used in the oven without damage.
Naturally, the handle as well as the pan will become hot. Use
potholders to prevent burns. The cookware can be used in the
oven at any baking temperature up to 550°F and can go from
burner to broiler to table when placed on a heat-resistant trivet.
