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 that 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. 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. Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of repair, replacement, and shipping and handling for such nonconforming products under warranty. This warranty excludes damage caused by accident, misuse or abuse, including damage caused by overheating, and it does not apply to scratches, stains, discoloration, minor imperfections, slight color variations or other damage to external or internal surfaces that does not impair the functional utility of the cookware. This warranty also expressly excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the foregoing limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. ® ©2011 Cuisinart 150 Milford Road, East Windsor, NJ 08520 Printed in China 11CW123658 Cook wa re U se a nd Ca re Guide IB-7550 C U I S I N A R T A D V A N T A G E Congratulations on your purchase of Cuisinart ® Advantage Non-Stick Cookware!

Rinse thoroughly in warm water and wipe dry with a soft dish towel. HEALTHier COOKING, EASY CLEANING When cooking with your Cuisinart ® Advantage Non-Stick 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. Use of cooking spray is not recommended as it may cause buildup of residue on the cooking surface. STOVE TOP COOKING Select a burner size that matches the diameter of the pan bottom. 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 and flames may permanently discolor the cookware exterior. ESSENTIAL PRECAUTIONS Never use Cuisinart® Advantage Non-Stick Cookware on high heat or food will burn. The aluminum core of this cookware heats quickly and its even heat distribution prevents hot spots. The dark interior color also allows food to cook more quickly with less heat. 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 cause damage to the stovetop. OVEN COOKING TEMPERATURE Cuisinart® Cookware can be used in the oven up to 350˚F for short amounts of time, not to exceed 20 minutes. Using Cuisinart® Cookware in the oven will cause the handles as well as the pan to become hot. Use pot holders or oven mitts when removing the cookware from the oven. DO NOT place Cuisinart® Non-Stick Cookware under the broiler. PROPER COOKING UTENSILS We recommend using plastic or wooden utensils in your Cuisinart® 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.
