Stainless Steel Cookware FAQs

Stainless steel cookware is the first choice amongst culinary enthusiasts and top chefs across the globe. Not only does its shiny, polished appearance give a sleek, professional aura to any kitchen, but its practicality and durability make it equally hard to resist.


Stainless steel is resistant to bending or warping, and this durability means it can withstand daily use in a busy kitchen. A great choice for home cooks as well as chefs!


When you use a stainless steel frying pan, saucepan, or cooking pot, you'll enjoy unrivalled versatility. Perfect for braising, boiling, frying, steaming, sautéing, poaching and more, the possibilities with stainless steel pans are almost endless. 


Stainless steel is non-reactive, which means that it won't react with acidic foods like tomatoes, wine or lemon juice. Stainless steel pans are also surprisingly easy to maintain, making it a perfect choice for busy households.


Finally, stainless steel can withstand very high heats, which makes them ideal for searing and frying. 


Overall, stainless steel is an affordable, multi-purpose, and long-lasting choice for your pans. What's more, if you choose a Prestige Made to Last stainless steel pan set, you'll enjoy ultimate peace of mind that your pans will stand the test of time.

Stainless steel doesn't chip, scratch or warp easily, making it relatively easy to look after. However, it's still possible to damage even the sturdiest stainless steel frying pan, especially if you accidentally use unsuitable utensils. 

To keep your stainless steel pan set in tip-top condition, we'd recommend that you:


Cool the pan first

Always allow your pan to cool down before washing it. Placing a hot pan under cold water could cause it to warp in a reaction known as thermal shock. If you need to wash a still-hot pan, just make sure to use warm or hot water.

If you're struggling to clean any stubborn marks, it could be worth soaking your pan first. Add a mild detergent to warm water and leave your pan to soak for a few hours before softly scrubbing it.


Cook on a medium heat

Ready and raring to go with your new set of stainless steel pots and pans? Before you get stuck in with your all-time favourite recipes, just remember not to turn the heat up too high straight away. Even if you're in a hurry to boil pasta with a clever Made to Last set with built in straining lids, choosing a medium setting will release heat more easily from the surface, reducing the chances of food sticking.


Use soft utensils

Stainless steel is a sturdy, scratch-resistant material, but you can still help to preserve it by choosing your utensils carefully. We suggest using wooden spoons and spatulas over metal ones, primarily to avoid scratching the surface of your new pan. 

Alternatively, silicone utensils offer improved flexibility to help you to reach all the nooks and crannies in your pan. Luckily, it's easy to find the best spatulas online to help you to make the most of your new stainless steel cookware. 


Dry your pans quickly

Even though it's safe to soak dirty pans for a short while, unsightly water spots can appear after prolonged exposure to oxygen in water. To keep your stainless steel pans pristine, dry your pan as soon as you've finished washing it. To remove white spots, try adding a small amount of baking soda before scrubbing gently with a sponge.

We design all Prestige stainless steel pans to be induction-compatible, so you won't need to search specifically for stainless steel induction pans. However, we recommend checking the specifications of your pan online if you're unsure.


If you're new to cooking on an induction hob, the general rule of thumb is that cookware must be made of a magnetic-based material. This is because induction hobs work using magnetic conduction from a copper coil underneath the glass surface. When you place a pan on the surface, an alternating current passes through it and heats only the base of the pan.


When a non-magnetic material touches an induction hob, it won't heat up. This means that pans made from aluminium, brass, or copper won't be compatible unless they have a special iron-bonded base. Prestige stainless steel pans are induction-suitable thanks to their premium, magnetic-grade manufacture.

Unlike cast iron cookware, stainless steel pans do not need to be seasoned. However, there is a knack to using stainless steel pans to fry food, to help ensure your food doesn't stick.


If you're frying in a stainless steel pan without a non-stick coating, you will need to preheat your pan without any oil for a few minutes, to get it up to temperature. Then, when it's heated up, add plenty of oil. Finally, when you add your egg, fish or meat, let it cook for a few minutes without trying to turn it or move it. it's only after the proteins are fully cooked that it will easily release from the surface of the pan.


Our Made to Last stainless steel pan set includes a non-stick coating in the frying pan and the milk pan, so you can fry easily with little-to-no oil and warm milk based sauces without worrying about them sticking.
